How do I know when you are coming out to clean my trash cans?

You will receive a text message the day before service to let you know that we will be out and to leave your can(s) curbside and empty after pickup.

My recycling pickup is on a different day than my garbage pickup, how will that work?

We ask that you call us at 833-90 CLEAN or send us a message to make arrangements regarding separate scheduling.

What if I am out of town?

If you are out of town, on vacation, or there is another reason preventing you from having your trash cans available for us to clean, please give us as much notice as possible to allow us to reschedule.

If we have no notice, and your trash can(s) are not available for cleaning on the scheduled service day, you will still be charged for that month’s trash can cleaning service.

Can Your Trashcan Make You Sick?

Every year, people throw billions of tons of waste into their trashcans here in America and many of them don’t ever wash their hands after doing so. These trashcans are then left to sit in the hot sun, exposed to the elements, insects and wild animals. After just a couple days of this, harmful bacteria sets in and begins to grow. The homeowner goes out, throws away the trash and leftovers from the evening meal and that bacteria transfers onto their hands where it can be delivered anywhere on their body and that of their spouse or children.

This is how people become sick and this is how disease is spread. Do you know what diseases a dirty trashcan harbor? Do your customers know? Read on as we have listed the top 4 illness causing bacteria that you should watch out for.

Salmonella

Salmonella is a family of bacteria that can be found in eggs, poultry, raw meat and unprocessed milk. Discarded eggs shells or pieces of raw meat could contain salmonella, which will then be transferred to the trashcan. Salmonella poisoning can cause diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, headaches and fever.

E. Coli

Escherichia Coli is a bacteria that is found in uncooked beef, unpasteurized milk and in cucumbers. Therefore, any discarded products that are known to contain the bacteria can possibly contaminate trashcans. E. Coli infection symptoms include abdominal cramps, diarrhea, vomiting and tiredness.

Listeria

Listeria monocytogenes are germs that can be found in raw milk, meat, poultry and some vegetables and, unlike many other bacteria groups, they can flourish at low temperatures, which means they can be found in your refrigerator and then end up in your trashcan.

Common Cold Virus

Germs that cause the common cold virus can also find their way into trashcans via discarded napkins and tissues. One of the main culprits for causing colds are rhinoviruses; viral agents that proliferate in the noses of humans. As the cold virus is airborne, discarded tissues and napkins can contain the virus.

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg! There is more harmful bacteria hanging out in a dirty trashcan than in any other part of your home. Make sure your customers know to have a trashcan cleaning service clean their trash bins often to prevent them and their families from getting sick.

Did you know that your trash bin is a major breeding ground for bacteria?

Trash bins become foul, even when trash bags are used to contain the garbage inside the bin.

These bags inside your trash bin will certainly acquire nicks, rips, and slashes; therefore, odors mush, and foul liquids will inevitable find their way into the bottom of the trash bin.

  • This can lead to increased health risks for your family and pets. The residue that builds up in the bottom of a trash bin is a breeding ground that can cause diseases, such as E. coli, Salmonella, and Listeria.
  • Unpleasant and offensive odors are produced by bacteria growth.
  • Pollutants in a TRASH BIN are potentially harmful to the environment. They could reach storm drains, streams, rivers, lakes and ocean runoff. The consequences translate into additional human health risks, ecosystem disturbances and an overall negative impact on water resources.
  • These pollutants attract ants, files, maggots, and other insects that can spread to your backyard and home.
  • The list goes on…

Just using a hose and broom to clean your trash and recycle bins is not sufficient to remove or kill the bacteria and diseases that breed in your bins. Also, there is no disputing that no one likes to go near a trash bin, especially during the hot summer months. Manual cleaning of your bins will allow harmful bacteria to flow straight into storm drains, contaminating all bodies of water that it enters. You will also consume more than 15 times the water than a professional high pressure system.

So what does all of this mean to you? Having a professional trash and recycle bin cleaning service is essential.

5 Reasons to Clean Your Trash Bins Regularly

Every day we throw bags full paper towels, rotten food, takeout containers, and more into our trash bins. In no time, the garbage can itself comes into contact with our refuse, and can get very dirty; leaving germs, bacteria, and that horrid smell, right out in the open. This is a problem for several reasons, and the only way to fix this is to clean your trash bins regularly.

Here are 5 reasons why you should clean your trash bins:
  1. Eliminate Odor – With all of the rotting food, disposable diapers, and other malodorous items we throw into our trash bins, it is no wonder that we stifle the urge to plug our noses every time we take out the trash. Waste, liquids in particular, can leak through even the smallest of tears in a trash bag and seep into the pores of a trash bin. This can make your trash can smell even when it is empty. Cleaning your trash can regularly can get rid of this odor.
  2. Eliminate Germs – Throwing away old food, and used diapers can infect your trash can with germs and diseases, such as Salmonella, Listeria, and E-Coli. Sanitizing your trash bins will kill these germs, and help keep you and your family safe.
  3. Get Rid of Maggots – Have you ever noticed how flies are attracted to your trash? According to the Washington State Department of Ecology, flies are attracted to odors, and lay their eggs in “moist, organic material.” While having flies buzzing around your head can be irritating, it’s even worse to find maggots (baby flies), crawling through your rubbish. Keeping your trash bins odor free will keep flies from finding them.
  4. Keep Wild Animals Out – Animals are often attracted to food found in trash cans. Rodents, wild dogs or cats, and even raccoons can often be found rummaging through trash bins. They are attracted by the smells, and remnants of past bags of trash. If these are cleaned out regularly, there is nothing to draw their attention.
  5. Keep Trash Cans Looking Nice (Curb Appeal) – When your trash bins look nice and clean, it’s not as much of a chore to take the trash out. You don’t have to worry about accidentally smudging your clothes, or encountering unwanted smells or creatures. It also gives your house and property a sense of curb appeal.

Cleaning your trash bins regularly can help with all of these issues. Get in-touch with us for an Eco-friendly solution to clean, sanitize, and maintain your trash bins. We offer multiple service plans to fit your budget.
