Frequently Asked Questions on Wheelie Bin Cleaning & Commercial Bin Cleaning

If you have a question that hasn’t been answered here – please let us know.

Why should I have my bin professionally cleaned?

When you clean your Wheelie Bin with a hose or bucket you will typically use about 75 to 115 litres of water. Water alone will not kill all germs and bacteria and if you do use a detergent the washed out contaminants are likely to be environmentally hazardous and only suitable for disposing of in a sewer and not in a storm drain.

A full clean of the insides of two bins (240ltr) by Enviro-Bin Clean will typically take 25 seconds on the truck and use less than 0.1 litres in the 60 litres used in the cleaning process. This is achievable due to the specially designed fully enclosed automated bin cleaning system.

Washing your own bins can lead to a expensive fine

Just to reassure you further all our waste water is disposed of in the correct manner, we hold a trade effluence licence along with Waste Carriers license and fully recognised by SEPA and Scottish Water board along with Moray Council in this matter.
