AFR Fast 100 List 2021
The Australia Financial Review

Waster was included at the 97th spot on The AFR Fast 100 List for years 2020-2021. The garbage collection startup garnered a 34.4 per cent increase in compound annual growth rate in FY 19-21, or simply CAGR. This is a significant improvement as despite the pandemic, Waster pushed through and still provided its A-game to everyone.

Where did the sudden growth come from, you ask? Make no mistake – the growth was not suddent and definitely not easy! It took countless hours of planning, execution and hard work for us to get here. And of course, we could not have done it without our customers who have always trusted us to provide the best waste and recycling services. Even with the pandemic still looming around, we made sure to cater to businesses’ waste and recycling needs.

Meanwhile, the fastest of The AFR Fast 100 List 2021 is Grow Finance, a non-bank lender catering to small and medium enterprises (like Waster). They achieved a whopping 21.8 million dollars in 2021-21, increasing 549 per cent from 2018-19.

How do you become eligible? To be eligible into the Fast 100 list, a business must have started trading on or before 1 July 2016, and should’ve had turnover greater than 500,000 dollars in 2016-17.


Another list: AFR Fast Starters

Aside from the Fast 100 List, The AFR also released the Fast Starters for 2021. This list was topped by GetFish, a business that does seafood home deliveries. Of course, this is due to the fact that the pandemic opened greater opportunities for home delivery services to flourish. It reeled in a revenue of 19.4 million dollars in 2020-21, an increase of 726 per cent since 2018-19.

As for Fast Starter, how does a business become eligible? A business must have started trading after 1 July 2016. The business should also have had a turnover greater than 200,000 dollars in 2018-19.


Why Waster, garbage collection startup, is part of the list

In the Australian waste marketplace, Waster is definitely included. Do you know the reasons why?

First, we offer only the best!

Waster focuses on the following:

  • delivering low-cost waste management,
  • doing so at great prices, and
  • not forgetting about excellent customer service.

You can arrange all your services with Waster and boost your recycling whilst reducing costs. You will also never be trapped into a long-term contract, as we offer the more flexible 30-day contract, instead, and as mentioned above.
