We begin by pushing the trash can(s) into our truck’s universal arms.
Lift The Cans
The truck’s universal arms then lift the can(s) over the waste collection area of the truck and over the high pressure nozzles.
High Pressure Spray
The high pressure nozzles then oscillate and spray heated water, hitting every surface inside the can(s) with 3500 psi.
High Temperature Wash
The water spraying out of the high pressure nozzles is heated to 190 degrees to ensure maximum cleaning power.
Our trash can concierge then inspects the trash can to make sure it’s clean before using a handheld nozzle to clean the outside of the can(s).
Eco Friendly Sanitize
The finishing touch is a proprietary sanitizing blend of essentials oils that kill any germs left over and leave your can(s) free of any unpleasant odor.
Frequently asked questions
Why should I have my garbage cans cleaned?
Have you taken a look, or better yet a whiff of them lately? Yikes. Nobody likes to dry heave when they are tossing garbage in the can. It’s totally disgusting and only a matter of time before you start breeding maggots. We simply have to help you out.
What type of garbage cans do you clean?
Our trucks are set up to clean the garbage cans most local garbage services provide for their members. We very rarely run into any issues in this area.
How does the cleaning process work?
We begin by pushing the trash can into our truck’s universal arms. The arms lift the can over the waste collection area of the truck where the inside is sprayed with a high pressure, high-temperature water nozzle. Once thoroughly cleaned, the arms lower it back down.
Our trash can concierge then inspects the trash can to make sure it’s clean before using a handheld nozzle to deodorize and sanitize the entire can using a proprietary blend of eco-friendly essential oils.
Do I need to be home?
It’s totally fine if you aren’t at home. You will need to make sure your cans are pulled to the street and we will have them squeaky clean and waiting for your return home.
Are you environmentally friendly?
Yes. We use zero toxic substances when cleaning the cans. We pressure wash your cans with hot water heated to 190 degrees. We then finish it off with a natural sanitizer developed with a proprietary blend of essential oils. Any water from inside the dirty cans is collected in our truck and disposed of properly.
When will you clean my garbage cans?
We clean your cans the day after your trash has been picked up. If your trash is picked up on Monday, we will clean your cans on Tuesday. We ask that you have your cans at the street for cleaning.

We will send you a text letting you know your cans have been cleaned once we complete the process.
