Studies show that Americans are very aware that recycling is the right thing to do. Americans of every age and background wish to participate and do their part.
Businesses and products that support recycling with modern receptacles generate positive brand recognition with both current and potential customers.
Modern Recycling Bins help position your business and separate it from your competitors. In the fiercely competitive marketing wars for the share of customers’ mind, successful brand owners know that no positive aspect of brand awareness or affiliation can be overlooked, lest their brand be at a competitive disadvantage.
The easier you can make it for people to recycle or dispose of trash appropriately, the more often people will do so. Making it easier for people to dispose of waste appropriately boils down to offering more opportunities. DeepStream’s infinite variety of attractive modern recycling bins and trash receptacles make it beautiful and easy to add more opportunities for your customers or visitors to do the right thing by recycling.
Many companies have invested heavily in creating brand awareness, not only for their products, but also in their points of contact with customers. Businesses with large investments in bricks and mortar create brand awareness in their customers’ minds by creating strategic infrastructure that distinguishes them from their competition.
DeepStream’s attractive bins are not an expense. They are an investment in brand image that is underwritten by a reduction in your maintenance budget. A Lifetime Structural Warranty means lower physical depreciation and lower long term capital costs.
Given the industrial and mass-produced look of many recycling bins, it is not surprising that many businesses are reluctant to add prominent points of disposal, because these choices may actually detract from their carefully orchestrated image. DeepStream’s modern receptacles set your brand apart.
DeepStream realizes that it only looks as good as its products do on a customer’s property. Partnering with its customers, DeepStream handcrafts its receptacles with the exact finish that its customers are looking for. DeepStream also uses sustainable design principles when creating its products to minimize maintenance and uses parts that are easily replaceable and recyclable.
The “Core Replacement Program,” unique to DeepStream, helps customer maintain the fresh look of these high-volume points of customer contact. This program makes replacement parts available at direct manufacturer’s cost so that its products never need to be replaced. If the look of the company’s brand or property changes, the look of the bins can easily be changed to support the new marketing direction, and at a fraction of the replacement cost.
DeepStream’s newest bin design uses the same design principles as the Audubon, OPUS, and Oahu recyclers and trash bins, but in a round form. Various graphics can be affixed to an inner graphics shell to give your bins a custom look at an affordable price. You can easily update the look with new graphics at any time for a very low cost
Recycled plastic lumber (RPL) makes these receptacles environmentally friendly. They are weatherproof, require no maintenance, and do not require cutting down the rainforest. Maintenance free, and backed by a 50 year warranty by the manufacturer, RPL is an excellent choice. RPL receptacles deliver the lowest cost of ownership over time.
Regardless of which material or style receptacle you choose, DeepStream plants 100 trees for every bin purchased. Trees For the Future issues a certificate in your name giving you credit for your commitment to the environment.
With almost $2 billion on the line, a modern airport needed modern recycling and trash receptacles.
When ordinary wouldn’t do for this modern airport, DeepStream’s modern trash and recycling bins allowed the project’s designers to integrate recycling into more areas to support the Orlando Aviation Authority’s continued focus on Sustainability.
Florida’s newest and most modern airport will also be its most bold and dynamic in the spirit of Orlando, home to world class theme parks. Modern trash and recycling receptacles by DeepStream have been chosen for Orlando International Airport’s South Terminal.
Designers chose DeepStream’s modern combination recycling receptacle and trash bin with 3form Varia Thatch resin panels. 3form makes an almost unlimited pallet of textures, colors, and materials to combine into unique decorative panels that wipe clean. The Varia Thatch that designers chose uses natural thatch set into clear and colored resin panels.
DeepStream Designs creates Modern Wood Trash Receptacles in many sizes and styles to meet your needs.
Elegant yet rugged, Oahu Modern Wood Trash Receptacles are a hit with your customers and staff. The ergonomic opening door, hygienic plastic bin liners, and aluminum frame make it ideal for restaurants, food courts, airports, indoors or outside. 316 stainless steel lid, hinges and fittings stand up to tough conditions while imparting as sophisticated presence.
Marine-anodized frames mean no paint or powder coating to fail. 16-gauge 316 stainless steel lid, hinges, and 18-8 stainless fasteners mean that DeepStream’s wood trash receptacles can last decades even in salty oceanside environments.
The side door on the Oahu Wood Trash Receptacle can be located on either side, opening in either direction. The door makes it simple and ergonomic to remove the bag and to clean underneath.
Available in 21-gallon or 33-gallon sizes. Order receptacles as a single-stream trash receptacle, double combination trash and recycling bin, triple-stream and quad-stream bins. Order the Smokers Outpost accessory mounted on one side, and all receptacles can roll on hidden casters or stand on leveling feet.
The Smokers Outpost accessory can be ordered installed or easily retrofitted.
DeepStream Wooden Trash Receptacles can be found in upscale hotels, shopping malls, airports, offices and even movie studios.
There are companion Wood Recycling Bins to match every style and combination bins for up to 4 streams of recycling and or trash.
For environmental and sanitary purposes, as well as ease of maintenance, we highly recommend recycled plastic lumber (RPL) Modern Wood Trash Bins.
Modern Wood Trash Receptacles crafted with RPL not only save money on maintenance, but they also make a strong environmental statement. RPL saves precious natural resources, as wood bins require cutting mature trees from the rainforests.
RPL has much lower maintenance costs and better long-term presentation. This is especially true for food outlets, restaurants, movie theaters, water parks, and parking lots where liquids will often be spilled. Natural wood will absorb stains that simply wipe off of RPL.
You may pressure clean DeepStream’s RPL bins for maintenance and sanitation. With marine anodized aluminum legs, there is no paint or powder coating to fail.
In 2009, DeepStream started offering recycled plastic lumber (RPL) as an alternative to tropical hardwoods. More and more of our customers have been choosing RPL for planters and weatherproof fixtures over the past several years. In 2017, RPL was specified more often than natural wood.
Recycled plastic lumber is a win for the environment and for our customers.
Weatherproof RPL reduces maintenance costs while enhancing your properties and brands, exhibiting timeless beauty and making an environmental statement.
We strongly encourage you to seriously consider the cost benefits and the long term appearance of RPL over tropical hardwood. The environmental statement made by selecting this material for your project is a positive one for your customers.
Eliminate needless rainforest destruction by specifying DeepStream RPL planters and fixtures. The RPL DeepStream uses is backed by a 50-year limited warranty by its manufacturer.
DeepStream was created in a response to a need. While building a condominium project, I reviewed the “universe” of garden planters and receptacles. I wanted planters, receptacles, and custom fixtures for my project that were just not available.
Wood planters were carpenter-built with wood-on-wood construction. As I’ve detailed in my planter blog link, they just don’t last. Carpenter-built wood planters tear themselves apart in 3-4 years in Miami.
Wasting valuable wood harvested from the world’s rapidly diminishing rainforests also wastes your time, money, and energy. Recycled plastic lumber was not an option at that time.
If your project absolutely must use tropical hardwood, then specify our Mariner planter system.
Wood expands when it gets wet. DeepStream’s trademark marine-anodized aluminum extrusion contains wood’s expansionary forces. Honor the wood you use by ensuring it lasts for decades.
Engineered with the principles of Sustainable Design, our products stand the test of time. Our engineered modular system uses, even reuse, hardwood in a design that honors the wood. Deepstream’s trademark aluminum extrusions allow construction that extends wood life by decades. This is true with all of DeepStream’s products.
Harvesting tropical hardwood destroys important habitats around the world, even if “sustainably harvested,” as hardwood trees take 50 years or more to reach maturity.
Estimates are that up to 50% of “certified” tropical wood imported into the United States has forged documents.
Offset your projects carbon footprint using recycled plastic lumber and planting far more trees than you use.
We do this for you automatically through Trees for the Future as a matter of principle. Planting trees through Trees for the Future provides families with more than just trees and food. It provides income, empowerment, unity, leadership, education and even saves lives. The program teach people to value themselves and their environment, and they see amazing improvements in their standard of living.
DeepStream plants 50 trees for every planter and 100 trees for every fixture you purchase. Customers receive a certificate to use in your marketing to let your customers know that you care about the environment.
To date, with proceeds from the sale of our products, DeepStream has planted more than 460,000 trees in our customers’ honor. This reflects our customers’ commitment to the environment that we are all leaving for future generations.
DeepStream creates many custom fixtures that use recycled plastic lumber.
Custom Fixtures, not custom prices, for hotels, restaurants, theme parks, water parks and spas. DeepStream’s proprietary trademark frame system allows us to create a coordinated collection of durable custom fixtures. This approach provides visual continuity throughout your property, indoor or outside
Custom fixtures shown above include a Point-of-sale enclosure with marine-anodized aluminum tambour door and frame. It features an insulated 316 stainless steel top, hinges, drawer slides, and handle.
The modern combination trash and recycling receptacle are also constructed with recycled plastic panels. Easily wiped clean, RPL does not stain and can be pressure cleaned. Perfect for food service outlets. Because DeepStream’s trademark aluminum extrusions are marine-anodized, there is no paint or powder coating to fail. Turning on silent Delrin bushing, bin push flaps are constructed of bare 5086 marine aluminum, making them easily cleaned and refinished.
Waterparks use a lot of towels. One of the RPL cabinets in the center holds fresh towels. The other cabinet houses a roll-in towel return cart.

Handcrafted with marine-anodized aluminum frames, these combination trash and recycling bins have no powder coating or paint to fail. Environmentally responsible weatherproof panels of recycled plastic lumber (RPL) carry a 50-year warranty from the manufacturer.
By selecting RPL panels there is no tropical hardwood to refinish or to cut from endangered rainforests. Deepstream goes further in its commitment to an endangered environment. We plants 100 trees through the Trees for the Future in our customers’ honor for every bin purchased. Customers receive a certificate for the forest planted in their name, showing their commitment to saving the Earth.
The removable rugged leak proof inner bins are rotomolded from recycled plastic as well.

Support the investment you’ve made in creating a unique brand identity by choosing modern bins from DeepStream Designs.
Modern receptacles can reinforce your brand identity. They are one of the most touched fixtures in a building, after doors, and the most overlooked by designers.
Whether you’re building an iconic structure or ensuring that an iconic legacy continues, the devil is in the details that your clients touch. Continuum South Beach, Miami Beach’s iconic oceanfront landmark at the southernmost point, relies on DeepStream Designs‘ Modern Bins to look great for years to come.
With its oceanfront location, saltwater corrosion is an ongoing challenge for most exterior fixtures. DeepStream handcrafts its Modern Bins using yacht building techniques and materials. Marine-anodized aluminum, recycled plastic lumber, and 316 stainless steel will last decades. Trademark marine-anodized aluminum extrusions mean there is no powder coating or paint to fail. These modern bins eliminate costly maintenance. They can be pressure cleaned, and there is no wood to refinish or tropical rainforests to cut down.

Rugged stainless steel casters add functionality to custom fixtures.
While all of DeepSteams accessories add functionality to custom fixtures, Casters are the most often requested accessory by customers. Casters can be attached to a recessed frame to hide them, or they can be added directly to the corners of the trademark marine anodized aluminum legs.
There are rugged accessory casters for almost every product. Stainless steel casters for heavy wooden food service carts, garden planters, or a weatherproof point-of-sale terminal cabinet. Medium duty dual wheel accessory casters work extremely well indoors on both carpet and hard floors.
The second most requested accessory to add functionality is leveling feet.
DeepStream Designs stocks two types of levelers for the bottom of products made with Audubon legs, like the bin pictured below. Both levelers have a maximum adjustment range of approximately 1-3/4 inches and rugged 12mm (1/2″) thick stainless steel stems with non-marking plastic footpads.
The pad of Rigid Leveler fits completely under a leg, raising the bin by 5/8” at a minimum. The Articulated Leveler, at right, has a wider foot pad that sticks out just a bit and raises the bin by 1-1/8” at its lowest setting. Both Levelers can be retrofitted in the field by affixing a special nut inside the void designed into the bottom of the DeepStream Designs trademark marine anodized aircraft aluminum leg.
The Rigid Leveler, above,is a lighter weight leveler with a smaller ridged floor pad for situations where the floor is generally flat, but there may be different levels caused by bricks or tile that are not completely level.
The Articulated Leveler, above, has a thicker and wider articulated pad that will rotate off level for situations where the bin is placed on a slope and you need to level it up, not just stabilize the leg for a lower tile or brick.
Which one do you need? If you’re placing a trash or recycling receptacle in a situation like the one shown below built with 100% recycled plastic lumber, where the brick sidewalk slopes sharply away from the building, you need the articulated leveler as a shown retrofitted on the right.
Optional Smokers Outpost can be factory installed or retrofitted.
Another popular accessory that adds functionality is the Smokers Outpost, available in Stainless Steel, silver grey and black .
Adaptation, a hallmark of our Sustainable Design philosophy, is reflected in our products’ modular design. Why throw away and replace when you can adapt?
Adaptation, a key component of Sustainable Design embraced by Deepstream is the ability of our products to adapt. Adaptive Design allows for the replacement, or reworking, of components to preserve the value and materials of an earlier design.
The adaptive cover below was created for a school in California. The school was committed to recycling, but was also home to feisty squirrels that rummaged their bins. The result, a “weatherproof ” critter cover.
If your top loading Audubon modern DeepStream recycling receptacle or trash bin is outside and you have raccoons, you might want to adapt your cover and lid with a low-profile slot and hasp for a lock. This also works if your neighbors are using your bin.
DeepStream builds every product as if the application is in a coastal environment near salt water or out in the rain. This adaptive flap is constructed from 18-gauge 316 stainless steel, whereas the lid is 16-gauge 316 stainless steel.
The hinged design is simple and robust, just like our bins. The low profile stainless steel piano hinge attaches to the lid with flush fasteners. A template makes it easy to adapt your existing lid with a drill and a screwdriver.
The 18-8 stainless steel handle has a standard distance between mounting holes. Should it be damaged, it can be replaced at cost, as can any individual piece, through DeepStream’s Core Replacement Program. You may also customize your handles when ordering or buy a substitute wherever kitchen hardware is sold.
The only compromise we have found in this design adaptation is that simple care needs to be taken when opening the lid to replace the bags that line the inner bins. However, it is an intuitive maneuver to open the lid with one hand while holding and gently lowering the cover with the other hand.
Of course, the cover also works well to keep out heavy rains and snow.
DeepStream’s large modular wood garden planters anchor privacy screen walls, eliminating costly and problematic penetrations of the existing waterproof roof membrane.
The best way to reduce waste and recycle is not to purchase items that will be thrown away quickly. DeepStream was founded as the result of our search for sustainably designed planters that would stand the test of time.
Trademark marine-anodized aluminum extrusions conserve the valuable wood, allowing it to weather
Matching modern wood trash and recycling bins create a modern Manhattan rooftop patio that will endure for decades.
These wood privacy screen walls use separated wood planks held securely within DeepStream’s trademark marine-anodized structural leg extrusions. Space between the planks blocks the view, allows for cooling air flow, and reduces the force of high winds on the planter.
DeepStream’s large modular wood planters do more than hold the wood privacy screen. The wood planter boxes equipped with waterproof plastic liners provide the perfect condition for landscaping with bushes, flowers, or even trees.
Each modular planter section’s aluminum frame supports a rugged waterproof plastic liner to contain the planting medium. DeepStream’s proprietary liners have a tapered shaped for easy replanting. They are designed with an advanced drainage system that can be directed if necessary using common threaded fittings.
The liner within a wood planter box design leaves space to hide drip irrigation systems and directed drainage if required. The resulting airspace between the wood planter box and the plastic liner prevents solar gain from overheating the root ball.
Solar gain is a real problem on terraces, balconies, and roof decks with south- and west-facing exposures. The result of this design is that the roots remain at ambient air temperature.
Solar gain will heat any single-wall planter or pot to over 145 degrees on an 85-degree day. As a result, the root ball on the sunny side overheats, stressing the plants no matter how much water they receive.
Custom fixtures, created using DeepStream Designs flexible design components, are durable and cost effective.
Weatherproof exterior and interior custom fixtures using 100% recycled and primary materials last for decades, are easy to maintain and ultimately to recycle. Backed by a Lifetime Structural Warranty, they deliver the lowest cost of ownership over time, reducing the impact on the Earth’s resources.
DeepStream handcrafts custom fixtures using its trademark marine anodized aluminum extrusions and 316 stainless steel. There is no paint or powder coating to fail. For every product purchased from DeepStream, we plant between 50 and 100 trees in our customers’ honor through Trees for the Future.
Custom Fixtures without custom prices. Deepsteam’s unique trademark marine anodized aluminum extrusions, with quick-change slide-in panel system, allow us to craft customized solutions to meet our customers’ needs.
Accessories like swinging doors, tambour doors, shelves, and casters for mobility take advantage of the extrusion design to deliver cost effective custom solutions without custom prices. There is never a design fee, whether you order one custom fixture or 100.
Recycled Plastic Lumber (RPL) is a perfect weather and sun proof material to use with DeepStream’s marine anodized aluminum extrusions. Custom RPL fixtures may be pressure cleaned for sanitation and maintenance as there is no paint or powder coating to fail. The manufacturer of the recycled plastic lumber provides a 50 year warranty.
16-gauge 316 stainless steel tops and stainless fittings ensure that these custom fixtures will stand up to the elements. All fittings are attached using a proprietary dielectric paste on all the fasteners. This paste prevents the stainless fasteners from seizing in the aluminum so that if any part of a custom fixture is damaged it may be replaced.
Here are two very different valet stands that use the same materials and components: stainless steel, recycled plastic lumber, and marine anodized aluminum extrusions.
Components common to these custom fixtures include 316 stainless steel top and fittings, recycled plastic lumber, marine anodized aircraft aluminum, adjustable leveling feet or casters.
Available in many colors, dark gray weatherproof and maintenance free recycled plastic lumber is used in the large Valet Stand, in the photo above, while the smaller Key Locker, photo below, is crafted with tropical hardwood colored recycled plastic lumber.
The same components are used to create the Custom Locker Cabinet fixture in the photo below. This locker cabinet was sized to accept standard gym lockers to provide this customer with a custom fixture without a custom price.
Hotel Towel Shelf with removable Return Bin: side view
The elegant tropical hardwood food service carts shown in photos below are just a few of weatherproof indoor/outdoor custom fixtures for restaurants and hotels. Stainless steel roller guides fully support waterproof drawers made of food-safe HDPE. Handcrafted so that all parts are replaceable if damaged. Available with stainless steel casters, flat or leveling feet.
HDPE (high density polyethylene – think cutting board), which is also used in recycled plastic lumber, is waterproof but not structural. DeepStream engineered special construction techniques to ensure these materials serve as expected over decades of institutional use.
Yacht building techniques and materials are used to ensure that custom fixtures engineered by Deepstream will last in extreme environmental saltwater marine conditions found on cruise ships and ocean front properties.
Planters with glass windbreak screen walls are created by DeepStream using the principles of Sustainable Design. Use them to create upscale sidewalk restaurant patios that will extend your outdoor dining season.
Large wood garden planters with a glass windscreen do more than just create a physical space. Screen walls quiet noise, creating inviting spaces for customers to dine and linger over drinks. They also direct traffic and control access points. Large wood planters anchor the windscreen without permanently fastening to the sidewalk or pad.
The quality of these planters with glass windbreak will also give your potential customers a positive feeling about the quality of the food and interior space. Modular construction sets up quickly, and the planters can be mounted on hidden casters for mobility. Caster options allow restaurants to reconfigure the space over time to meet changing needs.
Trademark marine-anodized aluminum legs and aircraft aluminum frame allow for a Lifetime Structural Warranty for your planters with glass windbreak. Waterproof plastic liners keep the soil from touching the wood for longevity. Carpenter-built wood planters will fall apart in a few years, wasting valuable rainforest wood, time, and money.
Reduce cost by specifying recycled plastic lumber (RPL) to replace wood. Using RPL reduces maintenance costs, as it does not require periodic refinishing like wood does, and has a a 50-year limited warranty. In addition, DeepStream’s marine-anodized legs mean that there is no paint or powder coating to fail, so planters with a glass windbreak may be pressure cleaned.
Replacing wood with recycled plastic lumber provides a commercial reason to recycle plastics such as milk bottles. Using RPL saves critical tropical rainforest trees and habitat. Which ever material you specify, DeepStream plants 50 trees in our customers’ honor for every planter and 100 trees for every recycling or trash bin purchased through the non-profit Trees for the Future.
A key component of Sustainable Design embraced by Deepstream is adaptability. Adaptive design allows for the replacement, or reworking, of components to preserve the value and materials of an earlier design when a situation requires it.
Adaptive design may be required in advance as a design feature on projects where ongoing work will require an installation to move. As other features are added to a project, DeepStream can work with your initial plans to reconfigure existing installations. This feature has many benefits for seasonal installation of planters for a sidewalk café or a restaurant patio.
There is never a design fee and reconfiguring may not even require new parts. If new parts are required, it’s a simple job for Deepstream to add a few additional joining planks and extrusions.
The rooftop dog park, photo below, is an example where the building developer may move an entire complex structure. The aluminum frame of the Deepstream modular wood planters that hold the wood and glass screen wall and gates can easily be disassembled and reconfigured.
If, for any reason, fixtures ordered months earlier in a project don’t fit when finally installed, the value of adaptive design is readily apparent. A miscalculation between initial measurements and “as-built” dimensions can be corrected easily in a cost effective manner literally overnight.
The 3 photos below show an example where DeepStream’s modular planter, created with adaptive design, allowed us to accommodate an unrecorded change in dimensions. At very little cost in time, dollars, or materials, we were able to supply new planks for the middle section of the multi-section planter.
Fiberglass, metal, or concrete planters would have not been able to accommodate this type of error common on large projects.
While the new wood planks will take a week or so to fade to match the color of existing planks, the same adaptive design feature allows for replacement of parts or further adaptation for the life of the planter.
Sustainable Design, coupled with manufacturing products that stand the test of time in an environmentally responsible and sustainable fashion, allows DeepStream’s Customers to eliminate the “throw away” waste factor found in many of today’s products.
However, that is just the start of DeepStream’s Environmental Stewardship.
It is not enough that our products will last for generations and help slow the destruction of the rainforest. Or that our products are 100% recyclable when their end of service finally comes. Or that we replant thousands of trees through “Trees for the Future” every year in our customers’ honor, a program which also offers locals alternative forestry jobs in tree nurseries and reforestation.
Even more potential rainforest destruction is diverted by offering planking for our recycling bins and garden planters made from recycled plastic.
DeepStream also ensures that it is meeting our environmental stewardship commitments with our packaging.
All of our cardboard used in shipping is 100% recycled content and purchased through Pratt Industries, www.prattindustries.com. Similarly, we build our pallets in house to ensure that the 2x4s we use are harvested and certified through either the Sustainable Forestry Initiative, www.sfiprogram.org , or the Forest Stewardship Council, www.fsc.org, or both. These standards provide third-party verification that the forest management and on-the-ground activities used by the lumber producers are environmentally responsible and sustainable.
