Waste bins can become foul very quickly. Trash bags tear and leave a collection of unwanted waste in your bin. Over time, this collection of waste, foul liquids, and grime builds up and creates unpleasant odors and germs. This can attract rodents, spiders, roaches, ants, and more.
Dirty waste bins do not only smell foul and attract unwanted pests, they are prime breeding spots for harmful bacteria. Listeria, e-coli, salmonella, and more can spread around your bins, reaching your hands and your home or business.
Looking to clean your waste bins on your own? The process is unpleasant, the bottom of the bins are difficult to reach, and it’s a time-consuming chore. The average person uses 15 to 20 gallons of water to clean just one trash bin and the average household has three bins. This amounts to a lot of wasted water and harmful chemicals making their way into storm drains and waterways. These hazardous chemicals are damaging to the environment and local wildlife.
