Sybertch Waste Reduction Ltd. | Visit website

Sybertech Logo2017  
Sybertech is a BC company that is committed to bringing new and innovative technologies to the public and government to reduce expensive operational cost and provide a cleaner, safer environment. We proudly manufacture two of our main product lines here in BC: In-Ground Trash Cans and Self-Watering Reservoir Planters.

Our In-Ground Trash & Recycling Can systems consist of impermeable cylinders of plastic planted into the ground. This means that each unit has a far greater capacity than a regular can. Huge operational cost savings, re-allotment of staff time and less surface waste are a few key benefits of this system. Our Self-Watering Reservoir Planters have a reservoir in the bottom of the planter that eliminates the requirement of daily watering - with some planters going almost a month between filling the reservoir. For superior cost-savings and vibrant flowers, these planters are the answer.
