Max-R Lumber™

Recycled Plastic Makes Perfect Sense

Max-R Lumber™ is made from 95% pure post consumer HDPE – milk jugs – and is designed for maximum strength and resiliency. It is the purest grade of recycled plastic available in the industry today. Premium grade resins and UV inhibitors are added to the lumber to prevent fading from sun exposure and to ensure our product’s aesthetics and integrity throughout years of use. Since Max-R Lumber™ doesn’t absorb moisture, it is resistant to mold, rotting, and won’t harbor insects. The result is industry leading, long-lasting, sustainable site furnishings.

Make It Pop With Color

The Standard.

The average Max-R recycling unit reclaims and re-purposes approximately 1,000 milk jugs from landfill. Every bin comes standard with its own unique number. That number tells the story of how many milk jugs were recycled to make it. We understand that sometimes the value of recycling gets lost in our communities. With Max-R bins nothing is lost. There’s no better way to show recycling that works than with a milk jug on your bin.

With your help, we are on our way towards saving one billion milk jugs by 2030.
