    Has anyone started providing trash bin washing service either as an added service or stand alone business? If so how has it worked out?

    A few people in my area bought the big system to provide trash cleaning and pressure washing. They are out of business now.

    Bleach water and a scrub brush... sounds like a simple business start up. Lmao

    In our area the trash company provides the containers for free. If you want a new one, you call them up and they deliver. People call to get a free can when they get grungy.
    Even in areas where cans are not free, I don't see a viable business unless you get a whole neighborhood to agree to having their cans cleaned, and you do the cleaning on trash day.

    I really don't care what the inside of my trash can looks like and I'm pretty sure when I told someone what it would cost to wash theirs out they wouldn't either.

    Someone on here said they service a neighborhood where residents put their dog mess in a separate bin from their other trash.

    I bet there is a market for it in that area.
