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.

Adaptation: Trash and Recycling Bin Weatherproof Cover

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 also home to feisty squirrels that rummaged their bins. The result, a “weatherproof ” critter cover.

An example of adaptation, Recycling Receptacle and Trash Bin weatherproof cover crafted in 316 stainless steel by DeepStream keeps rain and animals out shown closed

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.

An example of adaptive design a lock hasp added to a modern stainless steel trash or recycling receptacle lid

DeepStream builds every product as if 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 customized 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.

Custom Weatherproof Fixtures DeepStream Designs Planter anchored screen wall Planters Sustainable Design wood garden planters

Wood garden planters with privacy screen create a modern urban rooftop patio

DeepStream’s large modular wood garden planters anchor privacy screen walls, eliminating costly and problematic penetrations of the existing waterproof roof membrane.

Example of Wood garden planters with privacy screen on an urban rooftop patio

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.

Example of Wood garden planters with privacy screen on an urban rooftop patio

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.

DeepStream 16 rugged waterproof Planter Liners
DeepStream’s 16 rugged waterproof Planter Liners with advanced drainage

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.

Example of Wood garden planters with privacy screen on an urban rooftop patio
Modular wood garden planters anchor a privacy screen creating a urban rooftop patio

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.

Measuring planter wall temperature created by solar gain
Measuring planter wall temperature at 125 created by solar gain on a 75-degree day

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.

DeepStream wood planters will also hold screen walls of any material. Glass screen wall is popular to limit access on a roof deck as a parapet wall without blocking the view. Glass also makes a good security screen wall to limit access to a pool area, while allowing visibility for safety.

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.

Accessories add Functionality

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 to the corners of the trademark marine anodized aluminum legs directly.

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 are 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.

rigid and articulated levelling feet are popular accessories to add functionality to custom fixtures
ridgid leveler compared to an articulated leveler

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 wider articulated leveler for slopes

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.

DeepStream’s large rectangular wood planter with glass windbreak

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.

DeepStream’s large rectangular wood planter with glass windbreak

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.

Sustainable Design: measure twice cut once

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 extrusion.

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.

Screen Wall and Enclosure System

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” dimension 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.

Adaptive design allows modification of modular wood planters to adapt from  planned dimension to the actual as built measurements

While the new wood planks will take a week or so to fade to the match color for existing planks the same adaptive design feature allows for replacement of parts or further adaptation for the life of the planter.
