Don’t Just Take Our Word For It!

Listen to what some of our many satisfied customers and clients have to say about their experience with Carolina Recreation & Design


I just built a daycare center and called Carolina Recreation & Design to work with me for playground equipment installation. They were great. The crew they sent out was very professional; they followed the timeline they promised. Great company to work with. The playground they gave me will make a lot of kids happy and safe.


Carolina Recreation & Design was very easy to work with when our neighborhood association decided to upgrade the features at the park. From the initial contact to the final inspection, it was a great all-round experience. I would highly recommend to anyone looking to install a commercial playground in their community.


Our church considers Carolina Recreation & Design a part of our family. They have designed and built three play spaces at our church so far. Carolina Recreation & Design creativity, along with their professionalism, make working with them a joy. The final product is safe, current to industry standards, and, most of all, a fun space for the children. We would recommend Carolina Recreation & Design to anyone interested in upgrading their play spaces.


If there’s one thing that people are particularly good at, it’s making trash. And unless you have several conveniently-located receptacles on your property, chances are good that a significant amount of trash will just make its way onto the ground. That ends up being an inconvenience for you to have to deal with, but worse still it also creates a negative image for your facility that you’d really rather avoid!

Thankfully, Carolina Recreation & Design is here to help! Through our partnerships with commercial-quality product manufacturers like Leisure Craft, Inc. and Anova Furnishings, we’ve got plenty of great outdoor trash and recycling container options to offer, along with other essential site furnishings for your facility!

The Difference Commercial Trash Receptacles Make

The fact of the matter is that people will judge your site by its appearance. Sure, they care about the features your facility has to offer. But if they see a few, sparse, overfilled trash cans, or there’s just a bunch of litter on the ground – that’s a sure deal-breaker for those you’re hoping to attract!

If you really want to make your customers, members, families, and visitors feel welcome, then you absolutely need to provide them with the right site furnishings and amenities. And to that point, choosing the right trash receptacles and recycling containers matters. Here are some tips to follow when making your own commercial waste receptacle site plan:

  • Choose the Right Commercial Product – Commercial receptacles are designed, engineered, and built to be tough, resilient, dependable, and long-lasting. Property owners who initially choose to settle for cheaper, flimsier trash receptacles live to regret it almost instantly!
  • Customize for Your Site – One advantage to choosing trash receptacles from Carolina Recreation & Design is the fact that our receptacles can be customized to whatever color, design, or particular theme best matches your facility. We can even incorporate specific logos or mascots!
  • Buy More than You Think You’ll Need, and Purchase Extra to Use for Special Events – You know what the #1 cause is for litter on sites like yours? Simply not having enough trash cans spread around on your property! In developing the cleanest theme parks in the world, Walt Disney learned through research and experience that keeping trash receptacles no more than 25 feet apart is the optimum distance to deter littering. Also note that you should place receptacles at even closer intervals for any festivals or special events.
  • Be Strategic with Receptacle Placement – Some areas just naturally tend to accumulate more trash and litter than others. Here are a few “hot spots” where you’ll want to be sure and install enough receptacles:
    • Outside of building entrances and exits
    • Around other transition points
    • At any intersections or crosswalks
    • Beside and around any seating areas
