In June 2021, an exploded diaper incident turned Christopher McNicholas (Lake Bluff, IL) to the internet to find a solution to clean his soiled garbage can. Initially just looking for the right tools and chemicals to clean the bin himself, Christopher stumbled upon the 40-year-old industry of garbage bin cleaning.
“Big bin cleaning trucks started popping up in all of my feeds, so I thought I could have someone come do the work for me. But I quickly learned that there was a big hole for this service in our area.”
Just four weeks later, Christopher and his brother John (Lake Forest, IL) had taken delivery of their first bin cleaning system and incorporated their business, North Shore Bin Cleaners.
“We had both cleaned our garbage bins ourselves when they got bad enough, but it was always a pretty dreaded chore,” shared John. “Splashing in the face, nasty leftovers on the driveway, and honestly not the best results now that we’ve seen what our hot water and high pressure equipment can do. We constantly touch and walk past our bins. Keeping them cleaned and sanitized not only creates a much more pleasant experience, but can also eliminate millions of bacteria and viruses from being around our families and homes.”
The process is simple:
- Submit a request online: www.NorthShoreBinCleaners.com
- Receive a text reminder the day before your cleaning to leave your bins outside and empty
- Watch as NSBC comes to your curbside with their special truck to clean, sanitize, and deodorize your bins. Each bin is towel-dried and returned to the top of your driveway when complete.
All communication is via text/email reminders and all billing is electronic. There is also no need to be home for the service to be completed.
In the past two years since incorporating, the McNicholas brothers have grown their fleet of trucks and their team of bin cleaning technicians to cover Northeast Illinois and Southwest Wisconsin. Serving thousands of customers with their offerings of One-time Cleanings, Monthly Cleanings, and Quarterly Cleanings (most popular). They also contract with HOAs, townhome communities, and businesses for bulk cleanings.
