From their introduction in 2003, ClearStream bins
created a large following because they showed attendees “What Goes Where”,
which reduced contamination dramatically. Read our full story here!
Greening Super Game Central When the Department of Homeland Security required that all bins be clear, ClearStream
was a logical choice. 500 ClearStreams were set up collect Recycle, Compost and Trash.
Connectors were used to link the ClearStream bins into
rigid solid waste stations that greened the event. Creating interlocked waste
stations kept bins from getting separated and in a consistent order of Recycle,
Compost and Trash. Fans always had a clear choice where to put their discards.
The City of Phoenix investment in greening was also an investment in
protecting public safety. (Quote ESA here).
Connectors made it
possible to take existing solid waste stations and use them simultaneously as
crowd management barriers. The same interlocked solid waste stations that
provided receptacles for attendees were used as crowd management barriers at
entrances and exits. Connectors were a welcome addition for those who service
the operations and for those responsible for Phoenix event security.

Connectors |The Game Changer
Connectors link bins into rigid solid waste stations that streamline collection, safety, and sustainability. No tools are required. Just tighten the wingnut. They set up in less than a minute. Having bins in the same order and always touching is key to successful collection. Event organizers, such as those from Super Game 2015, also used these waste stations as barriers at checkpoints. When bins need to be relocated, crews can pick up and move the entire solid waste station as an assembly. Order yours today!
How to Stabilize ClearStream in Difficult Conditions One of the key benefits for the Connectors is that
they interlock and stabilize ClearStream bins to provide for contingencies. Connected
stations are recommended when dealing with high winds, uneven ground, and crowd
management assignments including security barriers at checkpoints.
Step One: Add a Connector to interlock 2 bins together.
First, set out the frames side by side. Make sure that
the outer and inner legs of the frames mirror each other.
Place the top plate of the Connector assembly above the hinges so that it fits both
Insert the bolt into the bottom plate of the assembly
in the same direction as the prongs.
Coming from the bottom, make sure the prongs engage
the hinges and the bolt sticks out
through the top plate.
Add the wingnut and tighten snugly so that the plates
compress to interlock the frames.

Step Two: Use the patented bag lock to secure the bag to the frame
Note, in high winds, have the lid available to lock to the frame
immediately after attaching the bag to the frame.
Place the lid on top of the frame immediately after
securing the bag. Attaching the lid will prevent the empty bag from filling up
There are 4 pairs of
clips molded into the lid which snap on to the frame. Center
the lid on the frame, grasp the lid and the baglock on one side with both
hands, and squeeze until you hear the lid lock into place.
