C&C Bin Service is offering a latest type of business to the Jefferson City area: Mobile trash bin cleansing.
A more common business sector in Europe, where around 75 percent of residents make use of it, trash bin cleansing is making its way through the U.S., including in St. Louis and Kansas City. The service sees trash bins cleaned and deodorized to eliminate residual germs, bacteria, insects and more that linger even when the trash is gone, leaving lingering odors which are typically hard to remove especially in the summertime months.
C&C owners Corey and Jessica Braun heard in regards to the emerging industry from family in Texas and decided to get into the business themselves, and the chance to supply a singular, protected choice to sanitize an oft-forgotten a part of on a regular basis life piqued their interest.
“We thought it was so interesting, so we did some research and put some numbers together and decided this is able to be an incredible service to bring to Mid-Missouri,” Corey Braun said.
The business, which began up in mid-May, is a real family-run operation: Corey and the couple’s son, Cody — the business’ two namesakes — operate the cleansing truck, which makes the rounds to houses after their trash has been collected to pressure wash, sanitize and deodorize rolling bins in an eco-friendly way using pressurized water. The couple’s daughter even helped them create a TikTok account to share satisfying videos of the method, from time lapses to slow-motion cleans.
The response has been enthusiastic thus far, with residents marveling at how clean the bins are after a single cleansing and on the difference it made to the smell. The couple said there have been also plenty of parents who liked to look at the method, which sees a hydraulic arm lift the bins to the colourful truck and let the high-pressure water clean the bins in and out.
The pair actually have a contract with Jefferson City Parks and Rec to wash their public bins, ensuring a healthier and cleaner environment for those having fun with town’s recreational options.
The service is on the market to residential customers in Jefferson City, Holts Summit and Wardsville areas on a one-time, monthly, bi-monthly or seasonal basis. The plan is to operate from March-December.
The couple said they intend to expand their services to industrial dumpsters as well within the near future.
While there’s loads of interest outside of the community as well, the team said they wanted to start out with the community they know and love first.
“That is where we wish to focus and make an impact because it is not only a business that cleans things; it might probably really make a difference,” Jessica Braun said. “We’re cleansing the trash cans on the parks at once to assist keep it clean and protected for families to go and luxuriate in the community. That is really type of why we kept it tight-knit. That is where we desired to make our impact.”
