The Problem & Our Solution

Posted on January 13th, 2023

Unsanitary containers attract unwanted pests such as raccoons, spiders, ants, bees, flies, maggots, roaches, and rodents.

  • Rodents are attracted to the pungent, rotting smell and are known to carry the Hantavirus.
  • Flies have been implicated in the transmission of at least 65 human and animal diseases and a dirty bin is an ideal place for laying their maggots and producing eggs.

Unsanitary containers are a potential source for illnesses. The containers that are left outside will accumulate bird droppings and pollen on their lids, which causes problems for people who suffer from allergies. Also, unsanitary containers are a major breeding ground for:

  • Bacteria such as Salmonella, Listeria, Staphylococcus, and E Coli 
  • Fecal Coliform from the fecal waste from dogs and diapers
  • Viruses
  • Food related molds and fungi

​*To control both the health risks and the odor, The Bin Men sanitize and deodorize your trash containers on a monthly basis.

The Green Initiative – A Measurable Impact

Water Conservation:

Maryland is being challenged by the current water crisis and local HOAs, communities, water boards, and government are extremely concerned. The Bin Men assist communities with their compliance to Local, State, and Federal regulations like EPA-MS4 & Storm water BMPs.

The Bin Men services use less than 2 gallons of water to thoroughly clean & sanitize each container. Less water is used in 2 years of your monthly cleanings than you would use cleaning your trash bins just one time.

100% of the water The Bin Men dispose of is reclaimed by the Water District, contrary to the water a homeowner uses that is often disposed of into the gutter, which drains directly into the ocean along with the cleaning agents, bacteria and debris.

​ Urban Run Off:

The Bin Men's cleaning process is automated and fully self-contained. No run off enters the storm drains. Unlike traditional DIY cleaning where all chemicals stream into storm drains.

All products used throughout the trash can cleaning process are biodegradable and eco-friendly.

Most cities and solid waste companies do not offer this curbside service and do not take on the responsibility of washing and maintaining your trash bins, residents are held responsible for cleaning and maintaining their own. It has become a serious problem for water misuse and chemical misuse by residents in order to DIY clean. We have found that the few residents who do clean their own bins do not care or pay attention to the amount of water they use or the type of cleaning chemicals they use in order to cover up the foul odors coming from their bins. 

The Bin Men will use 25 times less water and help reduce if not eliminate potentially millions of gallons of toxic water from flowing into the storm drains that may harm the water sources. Water consumption is more than 20 - 30 times greater when done manually rather than using a professional high-pressure eco wash system. With our self contained system there are no harsh chemicals entering the storm drains. We have commercial grade, self contained trash bin eco wash cleaning trucks.
