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
- 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
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
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.
For a survey please call Tawna Bensaid at 241-4337 or Shantelle Rego at 808-241-4336.
