Overview

About VMX

In 2001, VMX International opened its doors in Detroit, Michigan by its’ President, Vickie Lewis, and Vice-President, Marilyn Stengle, to work on waste and recycling solutions for the automotive industry.  From that single purpose and three employees, VMX has diversified and grown to a staff of about 70.   As an environmental services company, we provide solid waste collection, recycling, regulatory, and project management services to government, commercial, industrial and construction customers across the US and Canada.

All VMX employees are trained to meet or exceed state and federal regulations with a safety goal of zero incidents. We pride ourselves on a stellar injury record since the origination of the company.
