Recycling made clear.

ClearStream's Mission is Transforming Environments with Clear Bin Systems that Help Communities Recycle with Confidence and Enjoy Sustainable Public Spaces.

VISIBILITY is the key to successful diversion in public spaces. ClearStream educates visitors with clear bags, restricted openings and bold signage.

Putting a recyclable into a clear bag is a no-brainer. Customers report only 0– 3% contamination using the ClearStream system. But if it looks like a trash can, the container will be used as a trash can.

ClearStream bins will take your recycling program to new levels of efficiency, economy and public safety compared to nontransparent bins. Guaranteed!

Choose from 7 different types of stationary containers that match your environment and budget. Customization is also available.

Contributing to a visibly successful recycling system is a way for visitors to show their support locally for programs that have global environmental impact. The other environmental priority is to encourage everyone -- visitors, event staff and law enforcement -- to “See Something, Say Something” and contribute to their communal safety.
