  • The Norm…

  • The Issues:

    Animals, Birds, Wind and

    Over-Flowing Trash Cans

    • Would this keep a bear


    • Do these doors meet

    ADA requirements?

  • Water gets in

    and garbage gets out…

    Pollutes ground water and

    attracts nuisance pests such

    as rodents, birds and insects.


    One-piece solid

    construction – once

    the trash goes in the

    can, it stays in the can!

    Recycling Containers

  • The Benefits

     70% labor savings.

     Less frequent pick-up allowing redeployment of staff time

     Cooled by the ground naturally

     Self-compacting – the more garbage that goes in, the more it compacts.

     Anchor flange provides stability in frost and high ground water conditions

     Once the garbage goes in the can, it stays in.

     No smell.

     No way to burn the interior waste.

     Helps reduce residential trash from being placed inside open containers.

    2. Cooler temperature slows decomposition

    3. Specially designed flange redirects air flow for fire prevention and therefore, no smell outside closed unit.

    4. 9 inch opening prevents children and small animals from getting inside and helps eliminate residential trash being deposited.

  • Proposed installation of three Millennium Series 3000

    units reduces labor from

    189 services down to only 11 services over the same period.



  • Opportunities for

    Partnerships and Sponsorships  “Adopt a Can” opportunities can be offered to local businesses.

     The sponsor would receive brand recognition by installing a permanent

    sign on the can.

     Facility user groups could be encouraged to sponsor a can because they

    benefit most from the conversion.

  • Testimonials

     Kerry Lasko with the City of Seattle Parks and

    Recreation says, “if I converted the whole parks system

    over, I would have a ROI in three years.”

    “they work even better than we thought.”

    Recreation Department says, “In short, these units work

    exactly as described. Work smarter, not harder.”

     City of Portland, City of Tacoma, Tualatin Hills Parks and

    Recreation District, and many more are already using

    these units.

    injuries due to lifting heavy trash

    bags out of trash barrels (ie: off

    stuck by syringes and cut by glass

    due to lifting bags out manually.

     Helps employees avoid contact

    with physical waste.
