Trash bins become foul, even when trash bags are used to contain the garbage inside the bin. The bags inside your trash bin inevitably acquire nicks, rips, and slashed; therefore, foul odors and liquids find their way into the bottom of your trash bin.
This can lead to increased health risks for your family and pets. The residue that builds up in the bottom of a trash bin is a breeding ground that can cause diseases, such as E. coli, Salmonella, and Listeria.
Green Seal Certification means that a product or service has been tested according to a science-based environmental leadership standard, and proves itself to work as well or better than others in its class, and that it has been evaluated without bias or conflict of interest.
This seal gives manufactures the assurance to back up their claims, and end users the confidence that the certified products they are using is in fact for human health and environment.
Just using a hose and broom to clean your trash and recycle bins are not sufficient to remove or kill the bacteria and diseases that breed in your bins. Furthermore, manual cleaning of your bins allows harmful bacteria to flow straight into storm drains, contaminating all bodies of water that it enters.
