Bin Cleaning has always presented OH&S compliance concerns to councils due to the manual nature of the bin cleaning process. For this reason alone, the ability to perform this cleaning function in council maintained environments such as shopping strips has been a major concern, and providing a domestic service to ratepayers was unthinkable. FreshBins has resolved these OH&S concerns.
FreshBins has been awarded the 2010 WorkSafe Victoria OH&S award for Manufacturing, Logistics and Agriculture in recognition of the OH&S safety innovations that protect not only the operator, but also the public. (refer here for details of the 2010 WorkSafe award)
FreshBins we are now able to provide the community, municipal and state leaders with Bin Cleaning Services that can be safely deployed across the community at commercial volumes and minimal cost while meeting all community environmental expectations.
The community is becoming more environmentally responsible in the way we live; the way we manufacture; the way we dispose-of and recycle the goods and products that we consume daily. Health, hygiene and sanitation considerations increasingly dominate our focus to ensure we maintain our cities, towns and communities in a hygienic state, free from disease and other health threats.
Governments and Councils are under continual pressure to meet these increasing health and hygiene standards. While much has been done to collect, dispose-of and recycle the refuse we create daily, little has been done to address the disease and contamination remaining in our bins after the refuse has been removed. These garbage bins become vile, smelly, disease ridden, maggot infested containers that attract flies and vermin.
To date the only way to clean these bins has been to manually wash the bins with chemicals, sanitisers, deodorisers and dump the waste down our drains, ultimately into our rivers. In addition the OH&S risks to operators cleaning these garbage bins has been a major deterrent to providing this as a community wide service
Councils and Government must also consider the environmental impact of releasing chemicals, pollutants, pathogens, toxins and other waste into our storm-water, sewers, land and river ecosystems. This disposal process has never been acceptable but there has not been an alternative.
FreshBins has designed, developed and patented a bin cleaning system that resolves these concerns.
Complete bin cleaning, inside & out, without the use of any chemicals
Destroy 99.9% of all diseases and pathogens, while fully sterilising and sanitising the bin leaving it odour free.
Use only half a cup of recycled water per bin clean thereby drawing zero water from our domestic water supplies.
Sterilises, separates and collects all bin residues for responsible waste disposal.
Complete cleaning and sterilising with zero impact on our storm-water, rivers and environment.
No need for land-fill polluting bin-liners. We can keep your bins clean.
Truck operator has no manual involvement in the bin cleaning process, and is not exposed to any bin contaminants or vapours during the cleaning process thus removing existing OH&S concerns
Ability to clean 1,000+ bins per shift per truck, making the commercial service volumes achievable.
FreshBins we are now able to provide the community, municipal and state leaders the opportunity to meet environmental requirements, comply with Environment Protection legislation and achieve this at commercial volumes across the state-wide community at minimal cost.
