Our Story

One Family, One Vision, One Mission

The True Mold-Breaking Innovators

Over 25 years ago, The Prestwick Companies started on a mission to build long lasting, aesthetically pleasing site furnishings, all built in the United States. With business in 10 different markets and across 65 different countries, The Prestwick Companies morphed from a company with a sustainable product into a family of brands creating a sustainable future.

Since 2000, Max-R has continued on that mission, finding new ways to innovate and change the culture of recycling. As the innovator of the customized waste and recycle bin, our in-house engineering and design team created nine signature collections, developed thousands of options and configurations, and limitless ways to customize your ideal waste and recycle bin.

Our unique designs stand out in the marketplace thanks to our four signature design features:

We took these unique designs and combined them with our experience working with our pure-grade recycled HDPE material to create maintenance free, industry leading site furnishings.

The Max-R team is dedicated to not only delivering you the best waste & recycling bins and site furnishings available, our expert sales teams have in-depth industry knowledge based on years of experience in the markets we serve helping you identify the right bin for the right waste management application to ensure the success of your sustainability program.

Breaking the Mold

beyond just the blue bin

We didn’t invent recycling. We are the innovator of the customized waste and recycle bin. After listening to our customers’ struggles to find products that met both their functional and aesthetic demands, we took their frustrations and turned them into solutions. Our in-house engineering and design team created nine signature collections, developed thousands of options and configurations, hundreds of color combinations, and limitless ways to customize your ideal waste and recycle bin.

We are the innovator of the customized waste and recycle bin.

In addition to these nine collections, we created several products to meet the unique needs of the marketplace. In 2011, we created the Roll-Out Cart Enclosure to hide necessary waste and recycle roll-out carts. We developed the E-cycler in 2010 as a way to centralize mandated e-waste collection. In 2015, we brought the Cardboard Recycler to market after listening to frustrations over how to efficiently collect used boxes.

These are just a few examples of the innovative solutions we developed to meet our customers needs. Explore our full line of waste & recycling solutions and site furnishings to see how Max-R’s innovations can transform your sustainability program.
