Rubicon Technologies, Inc. has signed an extended, three-year agreement with Sweetgreen, Inc., a restaurant brand serving healthy food at scale, to continue to help expand Sweetgreen's waste diversion efforts, and provide enhanced account management as the company's partner for waste, recycling, and composting services. Sweetgreen has been working with Rubicon since 2016.

Rubicon manages Sweetgreen's waste and recycling programs (with a focus on cardboard, plastics, and aluminum), and composting and food scraps recycling; the latter of which constitutes a large percentage of the company's waste due to the use of compostable foodservice ware.

Rubicon also provides enhanced sustainability data, analytics, and reporting capabilities through its RUBICONConnect platform. With this extended agreement, Rubicon will continue to bring its network of more than 8,000 hauler and vendor partners to support of Sweetgreen's recycling and business needs.

"We are thrilled to announce this extension agreement with Sweetgreen," says Rubicon's Tom Owston. "Rubicon's mission is to end waste, and it is a mission that the Sweetgreen team has fully embraced since we first began working with them all those years ago. Sweetgreen's commitment to waste diversion from landfill is a testament to their willingness to put sustainability at the very heart of their business, and we look forward to working with them for many years to come to help create a more sustainable world."
