About Us

Company History

Appleton Waste is a local family owned and operated business.

In May 2013 David and his father Rock Appleton decided there was a desperate need for a strong local waste and recycling company servicing the entire South Okanagan valley. Strongly believing there was very little choice for customers, and that generally those customers were paying too much with their existing multinational haulers…..They purchased Okanagan Waste of Summerland and quickly re-branded to Appleton Waste. A lifelong dream of both Rock and David, who have been in the industry for years working for the big companies. In July 2013 Gene Stafford joined the team, and they haven’t looked back.

David Appleton, along with his wife Jackie and daughter Claire recently moved to Summerland from Edmonton.

Rock Appleton lives in Okanagan Falls, and is a long time South Okanagan resident.

Gene Stafford, his wife, and two daughters are also long time residents of Summerland.
