Bagged Collection Systems

The City & County of Honolulu offers to non-profits, schools and other city agencies the use of the ClearStream container for events. This container is designed as a thick steel frame that can be transported easily and set up in seconds.

  • When set up the dimensions of the ClearStream is 40" H X 27" L X 19" W.
  • The dimension of the closed frame is 40" H X 3" W X 24" L.
  • The ClearStream takes 40" W by 46" L clear bags, which stretch over the frame for a perfect fit. The City does not supply the plastic bags for the frames. Plastic bags can be purchased locally. Instructions on how to hang the bags can be found here.
  • The ClearStream container lids are decaled with either "Aluminum Only." "Plastic Only," or "Aluminum and Plastic."
  • Your organization is responsible for coordinating the redemption of the deposit beverage containers collected in the ClearStream.
  • Make sure to secure the receptacles to avoid theft. Your organization may be responsible for the replacement of any containers that are not returned.
  • 45 ClearStream containers are available upon request, on a first-come, first-reserved basis.
