Our Mission


Our goal is to help you achieve yours. Whether that’s creating a new sustainability program, outfitting your facility with bins and benches, or the purchase of a single waste enclosure, we’ll work with you every step of the way to ensure you have everything you need to be successful.

As the innovator of the customized waste & recycling bin, we’ve created a process of customizing your site furnishings easy. Whether it’s as simple as turning your trashman symbol into a trashwoman, adding a curved roof or engraving your organization’s logo, however subtle or grand the idea, we'll work together to create a bin configuration and design to match your program’s exact needs.

Located in Sussex, WI, our designers, sales staff, production team, and engineers work hand in hand to create a customized product specific to your facility. Our shelves aren’t stocked with products waiting to ship the moment your order is placed. Our bins are built to order, by hand, with commercial grade building techniques. We employ pocket-screw, post and panel dado joinery. All of our products are subjected to real world testing to gain a comprehensive understanding of how they will behave both structurally and aesthetically. The result is unique designs and construction methods that have been proven to outlast all others in the market. And thanks to our lean manufacturing process, we still maintain the best lead times in the industry.
