About

The Story

“In the mid 80’s the view from my father’s office window was to the backyard of our hotel and restaurant, the focal point being a smelly garbage bin that was open to the elements and attracted critters. Frustrated, my parents pondered what could be done, and from my mother’s idea of an underground storage container, my father developed what is today known as the MOLOK® Deep Collection™ system. Now, almost 30 years later, MOLOK® has spread to over 40 countries around the world, being the trailblazer for a new way of thinking about managing waste.”

Marja Hillis, Founder of Molok North America Ltd

Advancement in technology is changing our world. With the evolution of how we function everyday with technology, it makes sense to think about how we handle disposing our waste. Original Molok® Deep Collection™ system is an economical innovation of keeping waste areas clean, attractive and odour free. Deep Collection™ was invented by Veikko Salli in Finland in 1991.

Trailblazing the Canadian market since 1999, founder Marja Hillis, Mr. Salli’s daughter, committed to sharing this innovation with everyone, and started with the municipal, provincial and national parks market.  With the challenges of acceptance of the crane-lifted system by most major waste haulers at the time, Marja chose to focus on the parks sector first, since emptying the containers would be completed directly by park staff.

In 2003, to broaden exposure of our product to more clientele, Marja’s husband Mark began Deep Clean Waste Services Inc. to offer a collection service.  The service was acquired by Waste Management Inc. in 2009, and since then has been accepted by other waste haulers. Now, over 10,000 Molok® containers have been installed in Canada and we are further advancing our products into more North American markets.

2012 saw the Grand Opening of our new 39,000 sq. ft. facility in Mount Forest, Ontario, where we are equipped to carefully and quickly assemble our products. Our leading-edge R&D department operates on-site, creating solutions for the developing needs of our customers; while maintaining the high quality of Molok® products in a growing and competitive marketplace.  In 2017 we started construction of our new offices, as an expansion of our facility, and settled into our new workspaces in July 2018.

From its humble beginnings in the late 1990’s, Molok North America Ltd. is now eager to face the exciting challenges of the future with a proud staff that is equally professional and committed to ‘Change the World’ with Molok®.
