Recycling Décor

Ex-Cell Kaiser’s Echelon Collection of recycling receptacles brings decades of industry experience together with a refreshing, unique design that can accommodate virtually any public space environment.

The Echelon Collection provides an entire family of products that can be used across all areas of any facility, with capacities ranging from 32 gallons to 75 gallons. Featuring stainless steel construction accented by black trim and silkscreened aluminum graphic plates, Echelon units enable casinos to maintain the integrity of their décor facility-wide.

When the first Echelon units were introduced in 2015, they were so well received by the marketplace Ex-Cell Kaiser decided to expand the product line. After the Slim version was introduced to provide a smaller capacity option, the Half Hex (HHX) was introduced as an alternative to the traditional “half-round” design. For decades, Ex-Cell’s customers utilized the half-round design for a receptacle that was flush to walls, unobtrusive and visually appealing. The HHX model takes these principles and combines them with a clean, contemporary design.

Designed in collaboration with professional industrial designers, the Echelon Half Hex (HHX) adds visual interest to a space with its angular and sleek design. The patented design is available in one- and two-stream configurations (32 gallon capacity), and features a stainless steel body with black anodized aluminum trim. A locking side door provides full, secure access to the liners within the unit for quick and easy serviceability. An ash cup is available, as an option, to serve the casino market.

“One of the dictionary definitions of an Echelon is ‘a level of worthiness, achievement, or reputation,’” says Anna Cosentino, vice president of sales and marketing at Ex-Cell Kaiser. “This is the very embodiment of our Echelon and Ex-Cell Kaiser itself. Ex-Cell has become synonymous with quality, and the Echelon Collection is no exception. We are providing the marketplace with a comprehensive family of products that will serve the varying needs across any facility while maintaining design integrity.”

The Echelon Collection is not simply the next generation; this is the best generation in public space recycling receptacles.
