No matter where you look in your city or town, you're going to see trashcans. Yes, they might be filled with garbage right now, but on garbage day they'll be emptied, and those cans are still going to be gross and stinky.
All that grime and filth that remains in the bin afterwards contains bacteria that is just going to grow, multiply, and start smelling even worse. But that gross smell can translate into a business opportunity to earn some great income! Cleaning these dirty trash cans is a pretty big business overseas, and is now becoming a fast growing business in North America.
The United Kingdom was among the first countries in the world to adopt a standardized trash can, streamlining the entire garbage pickup process. The same standardization and streamlining has now taken place across the US and Canada. These cans, typically issued by your city or municipality, are over sized (compared to the bins we used to purchase). The much larger size of these bins makes it nearly impossible for the average homeowner to sterilize their own cans.
This inability to get your garbage bins nice and clean on your own has opened the door for a wonderful new business opportunity - cleaning those trashcans!
Since the bin cleaning business is a relatively new business here in North America, competition is scarce, and in some areas, even non-existent. Business owners do need to invest both in equipment and in time, but since this is such a new service, potential customers are everywhere. With the average household having 3 bins, there are a lot of bins ready to be cleaned.
People are really excited when they hear that there is a service that will come to their home and clean those disgusting bins. Not only are they interested in this service, they'll often tell their friends, family, and neighbors about it as well.
Why wouldn't you want to start a business with waiting, enthusiastic customers like this?
