There are millions of waste bins, just look around on garbage day. With the rise of separating food waste for composting and recycling, most households now have several bins: garbage bin, recycling bin, yard waste bins and food waste bins. And, they are dirtier than ever!

Dirty waste bins are one of the most unhygienic items in any home. Cleaning them is one those jobs that all of us know we should do; but rarely, if ever, get around to doing because without the right equipment it’s a gross job.  This has created a demand for bin cleaning companies who will get the dirty job done for a modest price. 

Bin Cleaning is still so new, you will most likely be able to find an area close to you that no one else is servicing.  This is a fantastic opportunity to get into a fast-growing business on the ground floor and secure the area you want to be in.  

You’ll need a truck or trailer and bin cleaning equipment. Once you’ve paid for your initial startup costs, the overhead is low, especially if you do the cleanings yourself. You can work the hours you choose to suit your lifestyle and income requirements.  This business can easily be structured around your family.  It’s a business that can be operated part-time or full-time,  and makes an excellent home based business.  


Trash Bin Cleaning is a New & Fast Growing Business 

In the last 10 years, most communities have changed over to the standardized waste bins, and there are more changes on the way. To reduce the amount of waste going into our landfills, separating and collecting organic waste (such as food scraps and yard waste) is quickly becoming an even bigger deal.  More and more communities will make collecting organics mandatory.

The only down side to organic composting is that the containers get very dirty and stinky.  Raw scraps of food are sitting (for up to a week at a time) in direct contact with the waste bin.  Frequent and thorough cleaning is the only remedy.  This is a significant opportunity for the bin cleaning biz and it’s only going to get better as time goes on.


Most bin cleaning businesses offer a variety of service levels.  common are a one-time cleanings, monthly service, and bi-monthly service. For communities that have the food waste organic bins weekly and bi weekly services are also popular.
