FAQS

Can you clean my trash cans if they aren’t wheelie bins?

We can clean a standard 64-gallon plastic roll away trash and recycling cans. We cannot clean small recycling bins. Call us at (844) 727-8229 if you have questions about your bins.

Where do you dump your water?

Once the grey water is pumped back into our truck’s holding tank we dump according to EPA guidelines. Our grey water goes into the sewage system where it is processed at our local waste treatment facility.

What should I expect?

Your cans will get as clean as possible, but grime build up over time may take multiple cleanings for optimal results. Cans that haven’t been cleaned in years will require more cleanings before the problem areas are removed. Substances like paint, grease, oil, and tar are extremely hard to remove and may not come off even after multiple cleanings. If your trash bins or recycle bins are several years old, they will be sanitized and deodorized, but they may still have a slightly worn look. Please be realistic.
