Advantages of Choosing Busch Systems
Be Content With Earth-Friendly Content!
The amount of recycled content used in our containers is extremely important to our overall company goals of helping ourselves and our customers achieve sustainability.
While some of our containers use up to 99% recycled content and most containers have at least 65% recycled content, the minimum standard we have set for our containers is 25%. Finding the balance between recycled content and durability is crucial to obtaining sustainability. Too much recycled content in our recycling and waste bins can actually lead to a less-sustainable product, as the product would more prone to breakage and therefore need to be replaced more often.
The majority of the recycled content used is recycled waste and recycling containers from existing curbside and other programs (Post Consumer) and the balance is Post Industrial.
NORTH AMERICAN MADE
Containers From Your Own Backyard!
We’re a company founded on environmentally-friendly products all proudly made in North America. Each recycling & waste container that’s designed at Busch Systems starts with an idea generated from the 30 years of industry experience and/or collaboration with a client to solve an outstanding collection issue. Whether our bins are rotationally molded, injection molded or vacuum formed, they’re all manufactured right here in North America by North American people.
The contents of our recycling and waste containers are also 100% North American made whether we use materials sourced from coffee packaging, potato chip bags, retired recycling bins, scrap material from other facilities or any other plastics or metals we’re able to get our hands on.

Our Bins, YOUR Way!
Research suggests that proper signage, colors and openings encourage higher collection rates, which is why our products offer a bevy of customization options to educate your users and make your bins your own.
Well-designed environments also create better behaviors. A combination of a beautifully designed space coupled with easily accessible, properly labeled and centrally located recycling bins equals a win for sustainability. That being said, you may have a space that needs a custom-designed container to blend or complement your space. If this is the case, feel free to give us a call and we can talk about how we can help!
Made To Stand-Up & Built To Last!
Durability equals sustainability. Through wind, rain, sleet & snow, our recycling and waste containers are designed with durability in mind and are subject to vigorous testing in applicable conditions.
Whether creating a bin for an indoor office location or outdoor space, durable materials are used to ensure that the containers stand up to the stressors in their intended environments.
Choosing durable materials to construct our products helps the environment by conserving resources, reducing waste and diminishing the impacts of excessive repair and replacement. For our customers, this means less time and money spent managing collection programs and more time spent making a positive environmental impact.

USER FRIENDLY PRODUCTS
Recycling Made Simple, for Everyone!
Time is money, which is why we design all of our products to make things as simple as possible while meeting our clients style needs. Our designs ensure that changing bags, removing liners or moving our containers from A to B is as effortless as humanly possible.
We also design our recycling & waste containers to be ergonomically friendly for the end user as well as the operator. We—along with our ergonomics consultant—accomplish this by ensuring that operators are never tasked with lifting excessive weights over a certain height or angle that is more susceptible to injury.

Our Friends Are Your Friends!
Partnerships are created by individual parties believing they can achieve loftier goals by working together. At Busch Systems, we choose our partnerships very wisely. Every decision has the community, the environment, our employees and our clients in mind. We strongly believe that the right partnership should deliver on each of those requirements from manufacturing to shipping.
This also includes what non-profit organizations we choose to get behind as each charity that we support reflects our goals in some way. So whether in business or charity, partnerships have been a key element of our success over the last 30 years and we look forward to what new and exciting connections the next 30 will bring.
We Eat Innovation for Breakfast!
We believe that the fun of innovating should not be left just to the tech giants of the world. Innovation is the by-product of creativity and regardless of industry, is essential for evolution. Thirty years ago, we began with one (good lookin’!) blue bin and an innovative spirit. That attitude has served us well as we have evolved alongside the recycling industry to design collection solutions that are ahead of the stream.
Our Research & Design team is comprised of big personalities with bigger ambitions to create the best products for our clients. They eat innovation for breakfast and we’re sure glad they do! Visit our innovation page to see what’s new and what’s upcoming from us this year.
