Frequently Asked Questions

The answers to some of your burning questions.

What bins do we clean?

As Perth’s most established and experienced bin cleaning business we clean all bins. We clean the 120l, 240l, 360l wheelie bins as well as the 660l and 1100l plastic dumpers. These bin sizes are cleaned in our custom made proprietary bin cleaning truck, with the process being largely automated. The larger bins, the front-lift steel bins are often not cleaned because of the inconvenience and difficulty. We clean these bins for our valued clients. Soon we will be introducing technology to clean them far quicker and more efficiently. Stay tuned!

Why would I have my bin professionally cleaned?

Bin Bath will make your bins look and smell great inside and out. We use a completely enclosed washing unit with biodegradable antibacterial detergent and deodorisers combined with high pressure Water to hygienically clean the bins. We recycle our water through a sophisticated filtration system. We dispose of recycled water and filtered solids under license as required by the WA Water Corporation.

How often should I have my residential bin cleaned?

This is obviously dependant on how dirty the bin gets. We recommend starting with 4 weekly service for domestic customers, then if you feel it requires cleaning more often contact us. For business’s and commercial customers, we recommend fortnightly service or four weekly cleaning service for excellent results.

Does my recycle bin need cleaning?

It really depends on what you put in it! It normally doesn’t get that dirty like your domestic rubbish bin, but milk, soft drink, beer and wine spillages are great to start bacteria building in your bin, which isn’t good especially in our climate. Also insects love sugar based items, so we recommend you have it cleaned at the same time as the domestic bin.

What is a FOGO bin?

FOGO stands for Food Organics Garden Organics. The FOGO kerbside collection is for food and garden waste such as kitchen scraps, lawn clippings, small branches and garden debris. Material from the FOGO bin (green lid) will be collected fortnightly on the alternate week to your recycling bin (yellow lid).

Do I need to supply you with water?

No, because our purpose-built trucks are fully self-contained with on-board water.

Does your company clean every day of the week?

You will often find us on Saint Georges Terrace in the City of Perth cleaning bins from 3am in the morning. We start as early as required on the day and usually work up to 7pm in the evening.
