Frequently Asked Questions


Q. Do I need to be home for your services?

A. No. You do not need to be at home to have your cans cleaned. We clean your cans on your trash pickup day. As long as your cans are empty and are at the curb, we'll clean them on your scheduled date.


Q. Why should I have my trash and recycle bins cleaned?

A. We not only clean your cans, but we disinfect, sanitize and deodorize them as well. We use water temps of approximately 200 degrees fahrenheit which rids them 99.9% of bacteria, germs, and viruses. Additionally, we spray down the outside of the can including the parts most often touched such as the lid and handle. Our state-of-the-art system effectively reduces health hazards such as Tuberculosis, Strep, staph, E-Coli, Salmonella & Listeria.


Q. Do you clean both trash cans and recycle cans?

A. Yes. We recommend cleaning both, your plan cleans "up-to 2 cans", due to bacteria, viruses, and germs that build up on both types of cans. We do not guarantee the scheduling of our cleaning services to line up with recycling weeks for recycling cans.
