Embracing Innovation and Sustainability: A Glimpse into Claystone Waste’s Future under CEO Corey Popick

On December 1st, Corey Popick officially took over the reins at Claystone Waste as Chief Executive Officer.

Popick has served as the company’s Chief Operating Officer (COO) since 2021 and brings a wealth of experience to the position. Popick’s vision is to lead the company into a future marked by innovation and sustainability.

Popick says he’s committed to advancing the strategic legacy laid by his predecessor, Pierre Breau, and will put an emphasis on sustainability and growth for Claystone.

“I am very excited to lead Claystone Waste. The waste management industry is changing, but Claystone is a forward-looking, community-owned company with a talented team focused on the future,” says Popick. “We are uniquely positioned to have tremendous growth and success within this changing environment.”

The company’s specific goals include improving landfill services, pursuing new technologies, and maintaining a strong focus on land stewardship and excellence in safety.

Popick is enthusiastic about embracing new innovations while remaining fiscally prudent in expenditures and investments. This commitment aligns with the changing landscape of the waste management industry, where sustainable practices are becoming increasingly critical.

“We are well-positioned to pursue innovations that enhance waste reduction, recycling efforts, and overall environmental sustainability – but we’ll do that in a way that ensures the community we serve benefits,” says Popick.

Immediate goals for Popick in 2024 include completing construction of a new transfer station in the City of Edmonton and continuing to build-up Claystone’s organics processing capabilities.

“The Edmonton transfer project is about deploying our proven technology, ability, and dependability in waste management to a market of 1.3 million customers,” says Popick. “It will help all sorts of folks – industrial, commercial, institutional, and residential customers – meet their waste disposal needs.”

On organics processing, Popick says Claystone is in a position to help more Alberta municipalities meet their waste diversion and composting targets.

“We’ve had a great 2023 with our new composting facility and in 2024 we hope to build upon this and be a regional leader in operation of organics processing,” says Popick.
