How It Works…

GermBustMyBins is a Curbside Trash Bin Cleaning Company servicing communities along the Coastal Carolinas and Tampa, Florida. On your trash collection day after your bins have been emptied, one of our custom built, eco-friendly trucks arrives at your curb to Sanitize, Disinfect and Deodorize your trash and recycle bins. Having your bins cleaned by our custom built trucks and professionally trained technicians will keep your bins looking & smelling like new all year long!


The X-Germinator Cleaning Machine is a totally eco-friendly, self-contained cleaning unit.

After inspecting your empty bins, we remove and bag any leftover debris. Next, your cans are hydraulically lifted and tilted into our customized pressure washing mechanism. Specially designed, extreme spinning heads blast 220° chemical-free water in all directions removing Germs, Odor-Causing Bacteria and Debris from the container.

The X-Germinator Cleaning Machine Sanitizes, Disinfects and Deodorizes your trash, recycle bins and dumpster right at your curb on the same day of your scheduled trash collection!

Be comforted that all greywater remains inside the X-Germinator Cleaning Machine allowing it to be properly and safely disposed of into approved water treatment facilities. After the cleaning process is completed, the hydraulic lift returns your container to the curbside where our technician performs a final inspection and sanitation protocol. Lastly, a mild biodegradable odor neutralizer is sprayed into the bin before being tagged to confirm that your service has been completed.

Do I have to sign up ALL of my trash bins?

No. You tell us which of your trash bins you want to be enrolled in any of our service plans. Additional Bins are ½ Price if at the same address & on the same day.

How do I sign up for your service?

You can sign up for services online at our website or by calling 843-733-3323.

How often should my trash and recycle bins be cleaned?

Your bins will be X-Germinated on a monthly basis… this maintains clean and healthy bins that might otherwise be a breeding ground for Germs, Odor & Grime.

How will I know that my bins have been cleaned?

In addition to your bins smelling and looking clean, we will place an easily removable tag on the lid confirm that “You’ve BIN Busted”.

If I miss my service date because of my mistake; will you reschedule my service day?

If at all possible, we will. But considering the volume of business, and routes scheduled in different communities on particular days, this may be impossible for us to do. We will try and contact you by phone or knocking on your door.

Sometimes I take my trash bins in early and don’t leave it at the curbside, how would it be cleaned?

We ask you leave your bin at the curbside, once it is cleaned we will place your bin at the side of your garage or at a spot we have agreed for it be placed. We will call, text and/or knock on your door.

How will I know when my service is scheduled each month?

Our automated system will text message you the evening prior as an alert.

What happens if I move out of the GermBustMyBins service area?

If you relocate, please call us at (843) 733-3323. You are not on a long term contract for our service.

What if my HOA will not allow my cans out past a certain time on trash collection day?

There are 2 possible solutions to this problem: Leave your cans by the garage, the side of the house, or anywhere we can easily access them with your permission. We will return them to that same spot when we finish our work.
Please give us the contact information to the HOA Board and/or Manager, and we will discuss the situation with them to see if we might be able to come up with a solution that can make allowance for a possible exception during “GermBustMyBins service day”. Most HOAs work with us to best serve the residents of the community.

You have cleaned my trash bin but there is still dirt/grime inside the bin. Why is this?

We have found that some of the trash or recycle bins we clean can take a few cleaning cycles to remove the build-up that has accumulated over time. We make every effort to clean your trash bins to the highest standards, and in time, we have found that our curbside machine will remove the most stubborn grime. In the meantime, GermBustMyBins has eliminated the odors and germs in your bins.

Why should I have my trash bin cleaned?

Using a water hose and broom to clean your trash and recycle bins is not sufficient to remove or kill the all of the bacteria and diseases that breed in your bins, such as; Tuberculosis, Strep, Staph, E-Coli, Salmonella & Listeria. In fact, you may only be adding to the problem. We not only clean your bins, we disinfect, sanitize and deodorize using our environmentally friendly custom X-Germinator truck.

Will you provide a one-time or occasional cleaning?

Unfortunately, no, it is not cost effective- having your bins cleaned 3-4 times a year would be more costly than monthly maintenance and not as healthy for your home.
