Frequently Asked Questions

Who are you guys?

We are a local Indianapolis based business and our leadership team is comprised of Ryan Diem and Tyler Taulbee. Both of us are serial entrepreneurs with a crazy work ethic and a mild case of OCD. We've known each other 15 years and are ready to help Hoosiers clean out the dirtiest part of their homes - their garbage cans! Oh yeah, and Ryan won a Super Bowl in his former life... Go Colts!

What areas do you serve right now?

Soon we will be able to say everywhere, but for now our fleet is focused on the North Side of Indy and the Northern Suburbs including Carmel, Zionsville, Westfield, Fishers, Geist area, Brownburg, & Whitestown. We are expanding our fleet soon to better serve all of Indianapolis!

Why would I clean something I put garbage in?

Ummmm... well, the short answer is that they usually smell nasty. And germs don't discriminate - they are everywhere and they think the sludge in dirty bins is the perfect place to multiply. Our high pressure hot water is the perfect eco-friendly weapon to scrub out the sludge, kill germs and help protect your home. And if you have tried doing it yourself, you know it's a disgusting job. And then the wastewater... do you really want to dump that in your lawn or driveway?? Just let the pros handle it - trust me it'll be WAY easier!! And more affordable than you think.

How do you get the gunk and funk out of my bins?

Wait til you see our specially made trucks! They use extremely hot high pressure water to blast, steam clean and sanitize the inside of your garbage bin until it is thoroughly SCRUBBED! Then we use a very light biodegradable odor neutralizer to make sure your bins stay fresh until the next service. No harsh chemicals at all for the cleaning process, and we collect and remove the wastewater to be processed in an environmentally safe way. Trash can cleaning doesn't have to be hard, let us do the dirty work. Check out the video down below to see the trucks up close!

How often should Bin Scrub clean my bins?

We offer several different options to keep your bin scrubbed year round, and even a one time cleaning for those that just want to try us out. - Monthly (Every 4 Weeks, 12 Cleanings/Year) - Bi-Monthly (Every 8 Weeks, 6 Cleanings/Year) - Quarterly (Every 12 Weeks, 4 Cleanings/Year) - One Time Cleanings We think that these plans give you the options that you desire, but you can always adjust your subsciption as needed.

Why is this a subscription service?

We like to think of Bin Scrub as a utility - kinda like your trash service. You continue to make trash, trash smells awful, and bins will stay much cleaner and fresher with regular service. And not to worry... you can adjust the service interval or cancel at any time. But really, you might want to think twice about going back to those nasty bins...

How do I pay for this?  Up front?

If you really want to make things easy on yourself, you can pay for an entire year of service up front and save 10%! Just check select that option on the sign up form, and pay as your are registering. Or you can pay as you go... we will automatically charge your credir card on file every time you have been serviced. Your credit card will be stored in your secure client portal, and we'll send you a receipt after every service. That way you aren't worried about paying yet another bill every month or two, just set it and forget it. And you can change payment information at any time - you are in control.

Do you use hazardous chemicals?

Nope. Our cleaning trucks only use hot water and high pressure to clean and sanitize. We use an environmentally friendly biodegradable odor neutralizer, and occasionally (often for first time can cleaning) we may also use a biodegradable degreaser to loosen things up. And all of the wastewater from this process is taken with us on the truck to be processed properly.

When will you come to clean my bins?

We will schedule your bins to be serviced the day AFTER your garbage has been picked up. We know that sometimes the garbage collection companies like to change up their routes/pick up times, so to ensure that we can get your bins cleaned we will come the following day. We'd ask kindly that you refrain from putting trash in your bins, but if you absolutely need to, please bag it so we can easily remove it to clean, and we will put it in a new clean bag to replace into the clean bin.

How soon can you get here?

We will make every effort to get to your bins the day after your next trash pick up day. Our sophisticated route planning software allows us to efficiently plan the fastest route possible.

How will I know that Bin Scrub is coming?

Once you've signed up, and we have your payment info on file, we will schedule you as soon as possible and notify you of the first service date. Leading up to your cleaning visits, you will receive a text/email reminder 5 days before service, 1 day before service, and the morning of service to leave your bins outside for us!

How will I know that I've Bin Scrubbed??

Your bins will look and smell great! No more plugging your nose when your open the lid as quickly as possible to drop stuff in. They will have been professionally cleaned, sanitized and deodorized.

How do I sign up?

Super simple, click any of the links on our page that say "Sign Up Now!" and then fill out the form. If you choose to prepay for a year (and save 10%), you pay within the form. If you would like to pay after each service, then we will contact you for payment information to keep on file. You will only be charged after service has been completed, and you will get a receipt. Once we have your payment information on file, we will get you scheduled and send you a notification for your first service. You will receive email/text reminders leading up to your first service.

Do you clean dumpsters?  And other commercial waste bins?

Sure do! We've got the big dog in our fleet and it's capable of cleaning just about anything up to a 10 cubic yd dumpster! It's nothing short of incredible. Restaurants, schools, hotels, apartment complexes, grocery stores... Yes! Just call us! 317-798-0000 and ask for Jon Huse, our Director of Sales.

How will you protect my information if I sign up?

Your personal information is kept strictly confidential and will never be shared with anyone. Ever. Your payment infomation is not kept in our internal system, it is securely stored with industry leadering payment processer Stripe. Your secure client portal is where you will log in to update/change payment method.

Can I get a discount?

Yes you can... Just opt to pay for a year of service in advance, and you'll save 10% instantly. Call us for more info. Or tell your friends to sign up and get a free cleaning for every referral of a new paying customer! Pro tip: this is unlimited! So tell everyone!

Wait, did you say something about FREE cleaning for a referral?

Sure did. Any time one of your friends or neighbors signs up as a new subscription client, they will have a chance to enter your name as an existing client referral. Once the new client begins service and becomes a paying customer, you will get your next cleaning visit for FREE! And that includes ALL of your bins that are normally serviced. You will not be charged for the visit, and if you have paid in advance, that particular visit will not be deducted from your account balance. And guess what... it's UNLIMITED! That's right, tell your friends! You might not have to pay for your bins to be scrubbed at all! (one time cleanings are not eligible, for sunscribers only)

Does Bin Scrub work year round? What about bad or cold weather?

Absolutely! As long as mother nature plays nicely we will clean your bins year round. The Winter season can be challenging and we want to be upfront that our trucks will not operate properly in a polar vortex. If for some unforseen reason we are not able to service your bins, we will make every attempt to reschedule your service. If we can't get it done in a timely fashion, no need to worry, you are only charged after you have been serviced. Take a look at our Winter Weather Info: Safety is our first priority, and we will take the necessary steps to protect our customers, our employees, and our equipment. At times that will include cancelling appointments due to inclement weather conditions. We will do our best to reschedule you ASAP, but sometimes that may not be possible, and you may have to wait until your next scheduled cleaning visit if you are a subscription client. At times we may not be able to clean the exterior of the bin due to excess water overspray. We will still clean the dirtiest part, the inside, and collect that wastewater on our truck. If your appointment has to be cancelled or rescheduled, please remember that our company policy is that you will not be charged unless service has been completed. In the event of a cancellation or reschedule due to weather, you will be notified via email. Thanks in advance for your understanding during the unpredictable winter season.

Gosh, are you guys always so fair, and positive?

Stop, you're making us blush... We're just Midwestern folks that care about our clients and want to serve them and their families well. We like to keep things simple, be transparent, and get the funk, gunk and junk out of your bins! Please tell us if we ever fall short and we'll make it right. That's a promise. Clean. Sanitize. Deodorize. Have you Bin Scrubbed? #binscrubbed We make garbage bin cleaning easy. We Do The DIRTY Work!
