Employee of the Month: 2018 Overview
As the year wraps up, we want to highlight our employees and the stellar work they have done this year at Canadian Mattress Recycling. One tradition of ours is to name an Employee of the Month and donating to a charity of their choice on their behalf.
We truly believe in helping local and global initiatives, particularly supporting those working to preserve the environment, improving health and education, and nurturing community spirit.
Without further ado, here are our employee of the months for 2018!
January – Jeremy B.
As our Weekend Supervisor, Jeremy has been overseeing a very successful crew with us since he started two summers ago. As January’s employee of the month, he asked the donation to be made to Variety Children’s Charity.
February – Kurt N.
Kurt wears many hats at Canadian Mattress Recycling for the year he has been with us. He asked the donation to be made towards the Vancouver Canucks Autism Network. Learn more about the wonderful organization here.
March – Wilson A.
For the last two years, Wilson has worked as part of our warehouse staff. He really excels at being a part of the team that operates our heavy machinery. On his behalf, we made a donation to OWL, which rehabilitates orphaned owls in the Metro Vancouver region.
April, May, and June
Ernesto P., Elyas S., and Sue Z.
From April to June, our employees of the months have collaborated to raise money for the Giraffe Conservation Foundation. Ernesto, Elyas, and Sue were feeling for the plight of these tall gentle creatures, so they made a joint contribution to the organization.
Ernesto has been working at Canadian Mattress Recycling for six years, one of the longest warehouse employees we have. Every day we see him smiling and happy with his work. His friendly demeanour has helped everyone get through long work days.
Elyas has been working at CMR for over the last two years. He is a great team player, and is the youngest of the warehouse staff.
Sue is another long-term employee of over four years. As our Office Manager, she has incredible multitasking and customer service skills!
July – Jimmy D.
It’s been nearly a year since Jimmy started as a Supervisor with us and he did a great job training a new shift of staff.
August – Eduardo B.
Eduardo isn’t one to complain much and just focuses on getting the job done. He’s been back with us for over a year and asked that we make our donation in his honour towards his faith so a church in Vancouver was the recipient.
September – Nemilito D.
Our Employee of the Month for September is Nemilito. He was a huge help in the warehouse throughout September. Lito was flexible with his hours for forklift duty, especially when Mandi was only able to work part-time. September was a particularly busy month for our company, so we really needed Lito’s help.
Lito has been working for Canadian Mattress Recycling for five years – six after June 13th. His normal day at work consists of operating a forklift and baling machine and assisting as a general labourer with tasks around the warehouse. A hardworking family man with a wife and two kids, Lito looks forward to the weekend – when he could go to a local park and spend time with his family and children. He enjoys all aspects of his life, and is a very happy and humble man. We made a donation on his behalf to St. Mary’s Church, a close community where his children were baptized.
October – Michelle C.
As our digital marketing copywriter, Michelle has done an amazing job this fall improving our websites, online forms, and our social media presence. She has helped elevate our online presence and company profile, and was very enthusiastic doing so.

November – Sue Z.
Sue has done a fantastic job running the office this fall, with a huge number of tasks to coordinate and set up. She handled it all very well! Read our chat with Sue here.
December – Ricardo
Ricardo is our employee of the month for December, for his work at CMR as a forklift operator and warehouse labourer. He has been working at CMR for two years, and is a fantastic team player! We asked what his favourite holiday is – and it’s Valentine’s Day, which is also coincidentally his birthday. :)
Canadian Mattress Recycling Inc. wishes everyone a very delightful Christmas holiday. We will be back next year with another blog about our Employees of the Months. Stay tuned.
