Local company will disinfect trash cans during pandemic


MALTA, N.Y. (NEWS10) — It’s important to make sure your home is clean and free of germs during the coronavirus pandemic, and that even includes your trash cans.

The Shiny Bins Cleaning Service in Malta is the first trash cleaning service in the Capital Region. They specialize in disinfecting the garbage cans sitting outside your home.

The company picks up your trash bins outside your home using extremely hot water at high pressure to destroy bacteria and airborne disease. Dominik Refino says their company uses 200 degree water and steam to clean your trash cans.

“With the COVID-19 disease living on on the surfaces up to seven days on most surfaces, and some longer, this is definitely a way to make sure these germs and diseases are killed,” owner Dominik Refino said.

The Shiny Bins Cleaning Service says heat can be a factor in reducing and eliminating bacteria. Refino explains when it comes to COVID-19, it has been established that the virus will be eliminated at a rate of 10,000 units every 30 minutes at a temperature of 133 F. Through the Shiny Bin’s hot water pressure, Refino says COVID-19 doesn’t stand a chance.

You can schedule a cleaning to protect yourself and others by going on the Shiny Bins Facebook page, or send an email shinybins20@gmail.com or call 518-934-1316.
