About us

Who we are

Container Deposit Systems (CDS) was formed with a vision to oversee the implementation of improved operational practices in recycling facilities.

CDS was formed with the intent of harnessing technology to drive improvement in productivity particularly within recycling depot facilities where manual handling of materials is still predominant.

Through changes in workflows, materials handling, logistic processes, facility layout and design, customer interaction and data acquisition and management, CDS seeks to evolve recycling facilities into efficient, modern service facilities.

CDS brings decades of experience in the operation and management of beverage container recycling. Together with our partners, CDS has an unparalleled track record of success in the areas of design, engineering, manufacturing and automation.

Container Deposit Systems works with current and prospective operators of recycling facilities seeking to grow businesses which set best practice in the industry.
