Why should I have my bins cleaned?

     Because they're dirty and they stink!  Trash cans are breeding grounds for harmful bacteria, including

      E. Coli, Salmonella, & Listeria.   Items that are commonly thrown in the garbage can also attract rodents 

      and bugs. 

Frequently Asked Questions

How often should I have them cleaned?

     Monthly cleaning is the most effective and economical of our service plans, but you can 

     decide which plan works best for your needs.  The less often the bins are cleaned, the more 

     difficult the job is, so this is reflected in our prices.

How does it work?

      We normally come the day after your trash is picked up, which assures the bins will be empty when we arrive.  We bring the bins to the street, where we use a hydraulic bin grabber to  lift them over our high pressure cleaning head, using 180* water to clean & disinfect the cans.  We remove all dirt and grime, but we can not guarantee that we will be able remove paint, tar, adhesives (this includes  chewing gum), etc. The outside of the can is also pressure washed with hot water, followed by a spray of deodorizer to help the inside smell clean.   Plastics do absorb smells, however, so it takes time, and a bin being kept clean, to do away with all of the odors.

Do I need to sign a contract?  How do I pay?

      There are no contracts to sign, you just sign up for the service plan that you want.  After your      

       bins are cleaned, you will receive an email with your invoice.  You have the choice to pay

       securely with a credit card through Paypal, or you can mail a check.


How will I know my bins have been cleaned?

     Your eyes and your nose will definitely be able to tell, but we also put a small piece of  blue tape       over the lid of the cans.           

Do you clean year round?

        We clean bins March thru November, weather permitting.  Our pressure washing equipment

         would be severely damaged if exposed to freezing temperatures, so we do not clean if the

         thermometer drops below 35 degrees.  

"Garbage smells are definitely generated by the growth of bacteria. I’d guess that the concentration of germs near garbage is somewhere between the level found in hospitals (a few hundred per cubic meter) and pig farms (a few thousand per cubic meter)."
