I see this board has not had a lot of recent posts, so I don't know if anyone will see this.

In a town/state where I used to live, a couple of organizations had large metal bins where you could drop off cans and bottles for recycling. They were probably 5' x 5' x 5', were a heavy mesh (not solid) and they held a helluva lot of bottles and cans. There was a chute into which you dropped the cans and bottles and the thing had a door with a lock so somebody couldn't come by and steal the contents. Periodically, they would be emptied, so I assume some service came around and emptied it or replaced the full one with an empty one.

I am looking into this idea for a non-profit organization to which I belong in a new location. I haven't seen any of them since moving here. Does anyone know:
- what these things are called (so I can do a better Google search);
- what companies may sell them or provide the emptying services?

Thanks,
friar1610
