So much more than recycling

SARCAN has so many amazing stories to share from across the province. Our employees care about protecting the environment and they care about making our communities better places. Check out these videos to learn more about different positions at SARCAN Recycling.

  • Chantelle Diakuw – Northwest Regional Manager

    I started my career at SARCAN as an Extra Large Depot Assistant Supervisor, so assisting was what I tried to do. As we all know, there are several opportunities every day to be an assistant. We assist customers, each other, our bosses, our company, and the environment. Every time we assist, we matter. When I became a Supervisor, my job was to oversee the operation of the depot. Again, there were opportunities each day to matter to someone, by seeing opportunities, problems, and solutions. Now, I am a Regional Manager, and I matter every time I am able to support, plan and lead. Our work produces real results. We help the environment. We create great depots to welcome our customers. We make each other smile. We maintain our company as a safe place for all different kinds of people to work in. We have made something here that we can all be proud of. I’ve had three jobs at SARCAN over the last 14 years. Each one has brought its own challenges and perks, but one thing stands out as a common theme through my entire SARCAN career: My work matters, and that matters to me.

  • Brent Seebach – Assiniboia Depot Supervisor

    I’ve been working at SARCAN for 25 years. I started as a casual and I didn’t want anything to do with the customer service side of the depot. I preferred to work in the back area because I was really shy and I didn’t want to work with the public. I was even scared to go into restaurants because I didn’t want to deal with people. When I started working at SARCAN, my manager at the time encouraged me to get out and be with the public and to interact with our customers. I became the depot supervisor in 1998. I do paperwork, month-end accounting, trailer-switching, ordering supplies, scheduling and more. When the depot is busy, I help out with the customers. I’ve been doing it for so many years, I really know what I’m doing now! There’s a lot of responsibility when you’re a depot supervisor, but it’s worth it. Being a supervisor has made me learn so much. I’ve developed new skills and have become a better person as a result. When I first started working at SARCAN, deposits refunds were only five cents and we only accepted aluminum cans. As more items became available like plastic containers and beer bottles, I got the training I needed to become comfortable to work with all of the new things. When I started 25 years ago, we were in a really small building, and about 10-11 years ago, we moved into a big new building. Over the years, everything has gotten better! When I first started working here, we were loading our trailers outside and we didn’t have automatic crushing machines. Now we have inside loading docks and equipment to make to it easier. In my spare time, I am a HAM radio operator, and I get to talk with people from all over the world!

  • Jordan Reikman – Saskatoon East Depot

    I started working at SARCAN through my high school’s work education program. On my third day of work, I met the regional manager for the area. My supervisor told the regional manager about my work ethic, and they offered me a part-time job starting in March of that year. Once you graduate high school, you always want to work at a place that you dreamed of, but in reality it’s difficult to know what that is. So, I tried SARCAN Recycling. Honestly, I couldn’t think of anywhere else. But, after a whole year of working for SARCAN, it really felt like I found the right place! I think the best part of what I do is forklifting, but the most important part is processing beverage containers, paint and electronics – putting the right materials in the right totes to be shipped. Work keeps me busy in many ways. Since I started working at SARCAN, I’ve been elected as an Occupational Health and Safety representative, and it has made my job feel more interesting. I’ve only worked for the company for a few years, but my advice is to let people know that the work we do really makes a difference. It can be challenging, but it is worth it. Since 1988, SARCAN has worked to keep Saskatchewan beautiful. If you work hard and love to help keep the environment safe, then SARCAN Recycling welcomes you!
