The County of Kauai is pleased to announce our HI-5 Bins to Businesses program! The goal of this program is to help businesses throughout the island maximize waste diversion by providing a convenient method to separate and divert glass, plastic, and aluminum HI5 beverage containers generated in the workplace. There are two types of bin styles available to businesses through this program:
- 3 bin stacking system labeled aluminum, plastic and glass to collect separated HI5 beverage containers
- Rubbermaid 23 gallon "Slim Jim" bins to collect comingled HI5 beverage containers
While supplies last, businesses can choose their preferred bin style, free of charge. The bins have been purchased with funding from the State Department of Health Deposit Beverage Container grant, and therefore should only be used to collect HI-5 deposit beverage containers. Bins will be made available to businesses throughout the island on a first-come first-served basis. Businesses that are interested in obtaining bins are required to complete a short survey. The Registration Survey will provide the County with a database of businesses using the bins and will also provide preliminary program data for each of these businesses.
Bins should be kept in a secure area, once the bins are distributed, the County is not responsible for replacing lost or stolen bins. All monies generated from the HI-5 items may be used to benefit the business.
