Frequently asked questions

It depends on what you put into it. We recommend starting with a monthly service, then if you feel it requires cleaning more often that is fine. Send us an email at bookings@wheelyclean.co.nz – We will happily change your frequency for you

Generally, they do not get as dirty as your red lid rubbish bin, but milk, beer and other spillages never fair well. Also insects still like to call them home! But again, it depends on what you put in it

Although we hope to in future, we currently do not clean green or garden waste bins. We do however clean all general waste, recycle bins, food scrap bins and hazardous material wheelies.

The short is answer that we will do a better job and take that dirty task off your to do list. We use far less water and do not put contaminated water into the storm water system. We use non toxic, biodegradable cleaning products that are more effective and better for the environment. Our specialized machinery uses a high pressure system and allows us to provide a kerbside service in minutes. We come rain or shine and are a cost effective method of dealing with a dirty job that no one really wants to do

No. Our machine is fully self-contained which means we bring our own water with us and take any mess away with us too

Virtually all water used to cleans bins is recaptured within our Wheely Clean machine

We dispose of waste water as required by Hamilton City Council via a licensed trades waste contractor as it must not enter the storm water system or our waterways

You can find out more about what those requirements are in the Hamilton Trades Waste and Wastewater Bylaw 2016 here:  https://www.hamilton.govt.nz/…/trade…/Pages/default.aspx

We will be there to clean your bins on the Wednesday of that week. Then resume to your normal bin cleaning schedule
