Trash Can Cleaning Process

Trash cans are cleaned, sanitized and deodorized right at the curbside once a month.

Up to three trash bins are lifted at one time into the washing position by a hydraulic lift. This curtails the health risk to the operator from handling a heavy and unhygienic bin. Each bin is lowered over a high velocity wash head. The inside of the bin is blasted with water containing a biodegradable cleansing and sanitizing agent. During the cleaning process, the operator uses a hand held high pressure washer to clean the exterior and the lid. The bin is then lowered, wiped, and deodorized with a long acting fragrance. All waste water is collected, filtered and recycled within the washing unit.

Because of this unique filtration system, OC Clean A Can’s trash can cleaning cycle consumes a very small amount of water to thoroughly clean & sanitize each trash container as opposed to the approximately 27 gallons you would ultimately waste cleaning just one trash container. We will use less water in 2 years cleaning your cans each month than you would use cleaning your trash cans just one time.

When you try to clean your own containers, there is always the problem – where should you dump the wash water to prevent the cleaning agents, bacteria and debris  from entering the storm drains. This is not a problem with our service as the process we use is fully self-contained and no run off enters the storm drains. The water that OC Clean A Can uses is later reclaimed, contrary to the water a homeowner uses that is often dumped into the storm drain.
