Frequently Asked Questions

We clean, sanitize, deodorize and supply a rodent/critter repellent air freshener in the outdoor trash cans/bins. We service residential and commercial trash cans/bins. We also provide other pressure cleaning/sanitizing services.

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, such as; Tuberculosis, Strep, Staph, E-Coli, Salmonella & Listeria.

To really clean a trash bin, you need POWER! We use high pressure 180˙F – 200 ˙F water to strip away years of build-up in your bin. It’s that build up of bacteria that promotes bacteria growth and odor.  We pre spray the bins with an eco friendly degreaser, before beginning the steam cleaning process to remove the layers of dirt and grime.

We not only clean your bins, we disinfect, sanitize and deodorize as well.  We do this by using a special eco friendly quad sanitizer that acts as another line of defense in removing the harmful germs and bacteria that are in your bins.

We lastly, hang a critter/rodent repellent air freshener inside the bin.

1 bin takes between 2 and 5 gallons of water depending on the condition of the bin.  Typically, the more frequent the bins are cleaned, the less water is needed   If you were to clean your own can using a hose, you could easily waste 15 gallons or more. Bin King Sanitation is able to safely clean up to 7.5 cans with the same amount of water a home owner typically uses to clean 1 can.

All waste is collected and properly disposed of at waste water processing faculties.

No. Our cleaning and deodorizing solutions are eco-friendly and biodegradable. Additionally, since all of our waste is recovered there is virtually none left behind.

We will come out the same day your local trash company picks up your trash bins. Once your bins have been emptied, Bin King Sanitation will load your bins into our specially-designed cleaning machine that will clean, sanitize and deodorize your trash bins, leaving them smelling fresh. We use high pressure and extreme heat while adding biodegradable detergents that kill 99% of all germs and bacteria.

No problem, we always have “industrial strength”, contractor garbage bags on hand.  We will use trash grabbers to place the trash into the contractor bag, then perform the cleaning process on your garbage bin.  After the cleaning process is complete, we gently place the contractor bag back into your clean bin.

Depending on your trash pick-up time, it may be necessary to leave your bin by the curb until evening. If your bins are not emptied until late in the day, it may be necessary to leave them out the following morning. In this case, our service staff will pull the bins out of the street and leave them in your driveway.

If we are in your neighborhood and you take advantage of the weekly coupon or choose our 1 time Bin Cleaning Service, then  there is no contract.  However,  If you wish to enjoy regularly cleaned and sanitized bins you may choose one of our service plans, located on the Pricing Page of our website and range from Monthly, Every Other Month, or Quarterly bin cleaning services.

No. Each container has its own identification and will be cleaned each service cycle.

Paint, tar and other adhesives are extremely difficult to remove and may not come off. We will do our best to remove these problem areas as best we can. Cans that have not been washed in several years may also require a few more cleanings before these problem areas are broken up and removed. Please remember, if you have newer cans, they are sure to look brand new after cleaning. If your cans are several years old, they will be clean but may have the “worn look” still present. Please be reasonable. Although we can’t take a can that is 20 years old and make it look brand new, it will be sanitized, disinfected, and deodorized to protect you and your family. We take great pride in offering this new and unique service

You mean besides the fact that they look like new and smell fresh? We will turn the trash bins to face towards the curb so you know your service has been completed. You will also notice a Bin King Sanitation Logo “rodent repellent” air freshener hanging inside your clean bins.

No problem. Simply call or email us in advance of your cleaning day and we will credit you for that month, skip your cleaning and we’ll see you the following month. Unfortunately, if you don’t notify us and we show up to provide the service, your account cannot be credited.

Yes, we have the ability to not only clean the residential wheelie bins seen in our pictures, but also  different sizes of garbage bins.  Our bin grabbing system has the ability to grab different sized garbage bing/cans and lift them into the cleaning system.  This ranges from most small to large round, store bought garbage bins/cans made of plastic, and also most metal  garbage bins/cans as well.
