Frequently Asked Questions
Garbage cans are a breeding ground for germs and bacteria. Dirty garbage cans release an unpleasant odor and can become an attractant for insects and rodents. Cleaning your can regularly will help reduce the risks associated with all of these health concerns.
We recommend cleaning your garbage can on a monthly basis. Monthly cleanings will help reduce the buildup of harmful germs and odor causing bacteria.
There is no need for you to be at home.
We will come to your neighborhood on the day AFTER your trash and recycling pickup.
We clean the standard square tip cart garbage cans provided by the local garbage can companies. We do not clean round cans or dumpters.
The can will be taken curbside to our fully self-contained cleaning truck. A nontoxic, biogradeable degreaser will be used to loosen the grime and soil pre-wash. The can will be pressure steam cleaned inside and out and all runoff will be captured in our hopper. Post-wash we apply an environmentally friendly sanitizer, disinfectant, and deodorant to the inside of your can. This will help to reduce bacteria growth and assist in odor control.
Monthly service (12 cleanings per year for both bins) for $20.00 per service.
Every Other Month (6 cleanings per year for both bins) is $25.00 per service.
Once per Quarter ( 4 cleanings per year for both bins) is $35.00 per service.

Our services are available year round.
No, for your convenience we will automatically renew your account every year with the same service option as the previous year. If you wish to cancel or change your service, please notify our office before your next billing.
Yes, we only use non-toxic, biodegradeable cleaning agents. The cleaning process uses very little water and all runoff is collected and disposed of properly. The average person cleaning with a garden hose will use significantly more water and the runoff often enters the storm drain system.
In addition to your garbage can looking and smelling clean, we will affix an easily removable tag on the handle advising you that we have cleaned, sanitized, and deodorized your trash can.
We will make every effort to clean your can to the highest of standards. Sometimes it will take a few cleaning cycles to remove grime that has built up over time. Stains from items such as tar, paint, and oil will not be removed by our cleaning process.
We ask that you have your can completely empty on your scheduled cleaning day. If you forget, we will empty your can before we clean it, and then place your garbage back inside when the cleaning is complete.
Yes you can. We have found that our service makes a great gift idea for parents and grandparents, elderly neighbors, or young couples with children in diapers. When you sign up, simply indicate where you would like the service to be completed.
