Sustainable Design Sets Our Recycling Bins Apart

DeepStream Designs’ mission is to provide alternative products with a timeless design that are engineered and constructed so that they will endure for generations, reducing the impact on the earth’s resources, and providing the lowest cost of ownership over time. 

Our products’ design allows your bins to be as unique as your project, business, or property, and supports the investment you have made in your firm’s image.  Therefore, if you’re looking for a common, cheap, or short-term solution for recyclers, it would be a waste of your time to specify our product for your project. 

We are philosophically opposed to building cheap products with a limited lifespan.  Products that have parts that can not be easily or cost-effectively replaced mean that the entire unit will be thrown away in a couple of years because it ceases to function or  look good.  These products end up costing more over time.

Why are DeepStream Designs’ Recycling and Trash Bins different from others? 

Longevity:  Our bins are an investment in the appearance of your property.  We partner with our customers by making replacement parts available at our direct cost through our Core Replacement Program -- there is no profit mark-up. Whether they are used indoors or out in the elements, the classic modern design never goes out of style, and our bins are engineered for the lowest lifecycle cost over time.

Replaceable panel design:  DeepStream’s proprietary marine-anodized legs and Anti-Gravity frame system make it easy and cost effective to change the appearance of your bins if the look of your property should change in the future. 

Replaceable panels can turn the face of the bins into easily changeable, cost effective graphics panels for marketing programs or directional information about your property that can be changed by your on-site staff.

If you select the popular wood panels, our frame system contains and directs the incredible differential forces wood creates when it expands and contracts in the rain and sun, delivering decades of attractive service.  Wood that is bolted or screwed together will tear itself apart in time as each piece expands and contacts at different rates, because they come from different parts of different trees.

Customization:  Audubon legs are available in various shapes that allow us to build matching site amenities in any rectilinear configuration.   While standard leg heights are 21”, 31”, and 42”, they are available up to 144”.  We have provided spring-loaded lunch tray carts, towel and jogging amenities carts, umbrella stands, towel return bins, fire towers, and other items to upscale hotel chains, sports venues, resorts, and corporations, malls and food courts. 

We can supply matching garden planters to delineate restaurant or pool areas. Large planters can be supplied on casters to make it easy to set off multi-use areas for  meetings or weddings from the general public.

Isolation and Hygiene:  Our HDPE non-skid feet prevent contact between the legs and wet ground to prevent corrosion.  Our unique aluminum grid that doesn’t allow the build up of trash and spoiled food to attract pests like a solid tray can, supports molded recycled plastic liners that will never leak.

Construction DeepStream products are manufactured by American craftsmen, using yacht-building techniques and materials, and allow for damaged pieces to be replaced at the manufacturer’s direct cost via our unique “Core Replacement Program.” Proprietary dielectric paste prevents the stainless steel fasteners from seizing in the aluminum legs for decades of access.  Proprietary copper treatment of any closed holes in the wood enhances the tropical hardwood’s natural qualities to prevent wood rot for decades.

Materials:  16-gauge 304 stainless steel lids, 18-8 Stainless steel fasteners, marine-anodized 6063-T5 aluminum legs, 1/4” thick 5086 marine-grade aluminum push flaps on teflon bushings, 3/4” solid tropical hardwood planking, and high-density plastics and resin will last for decades, and allow for an elegant and modern design.

Our goal is to avoid maintenance issues such as those shown in the two pictures below:

DeepStream Designs uses 5086 and marine-anodized 6063 aluminum with low corrosion properties along with a proprietary dielectric compound and 18-8 stainless steel fasteners as part of its sustainable design, rather than powdercoated cast aluminum as seen in this trash bin severely corroding after only one year in a marine environment.

Rusting trash binDeepStream Designs uses marine-anodized aluminum, not powdercoated steel, so that our bins never rust.

Integration Part of an integrated system that includes recycling and trash bins, wall systems, and signage, DeepStream Designs planters allow Architects and Landscape Architects to meet their clients’ goals with seamless plans, delivering cost effective solutions to a vital aspect of their projects’ sustainable design goals.

Value:  DeepStream sells direct with pricing based on volume, and has very low overhead.  This allows us to use the best materials and pay a living wage to American craftsmen, while ensuring that our customer is getting the lowest lifecycle cost for their project and the planet.

Green:  DeepStream is committed to doing its part to save the planet by using recycled or easily recyclable materials.  Our engineering and materials selections ensure that the products will last as long as possible, breaking the “throw-away” cycle, and protecting the earth’s resources. 

For every bin we build, even if it is from plastic lumber made from recycled milk bottles, we plant 100 trees in our customer’s name through Trees for the Future ( which provides for significant employment opportunities at the rural level in countries like Haiti and Brazil, while promoting environmental education and restoration.
