Leave your green bin at the curb, where we will…
CLEAN – Using a customized pressure washer, we blast away stubborn debris that sticks to the inside of the green bin. All water used during the cleaning process is captured and recycled.
SANITIZE – Our environmentally safe cleaner kills 99.9% of bacteria.
ELIMINATE ODOUR – Finally, we apply an odour eating enzyme that feeds on microscopic residue and leaves your bin smelling fresh and clean.

“Bin Buddy’s were efficient and professional when I called them and exceeded my expectations on sign up. As they said, you really can put your head in there and breathe fresh clean air after the service. Thank you!” – Gillian, Halifax

“Very excellent job. They support charities & so do I. I have already recommended them to my neighbours.” – Kempton, Dartmouth


What if Bin Buddy’s isn’t able to clean my bin due to extreme weather conditions, street closures or delays in HRM bin emptying services?

You will only be charged for cleanings that take place. If our services are disrupted, whatever the reason, you will not pay for the cleaning. We will contact you and set up another time to complete the service.
Will my bin get cleaned if my collection day falls on a holiday?

We follow the exact same schedule as your waste and recycling pickup. If the HRM is not emptying bins on a particular day, we will do the cleaning the day of HRM’s substitute pick up date.
Will the cleaning process make a mess on my driveway?

Our custom mobile cleaning system positions the green bin in a manner to collect the waste water created during the cleaning process. The water is then recycled through a multi-stage filtration process that cleans the water so that it may be reused.
Does someone need to be home during the cleaning?

You don’t need to be home for us to clean your green bin. The green bin should be left curb side until we have had a chance to clean it, otherwise, please have it in a plain view and in an accessible location.
How long should I leave my bin on my driveway?

We strive to have your bin cleaned by 9 p.m. In the unlikely event that your bin has not been cleaned by 9 p.m., one of our team members will notify you and ensure it is cleaned the next day.
Can I cancel my monthly/bi-weekly service at any time?

If you’re unhappy for any reason, you can cancel your service and your outstanding balance will be refunded, minus a cancellation fee.
Why Is There A Cancelation Fee?

Our regular services are deeply discounted and it is possible that someone could take advantage of these prices and cancel their service after a one-time cleaning. The cancellation fee is the same cost as a one-time cleaning price plus a $15 credit card administration fee.
Why are one-time bin cleanings more expensive?

One-time cleanings require individual scheduling and billing. They are also more intensive, and often, more time consuming than continued service cleanings.


Bin Buddy’s Professional Green Bin Cleaning Service is owned by Tim and Mike. Their company’s goal is to offer green bin sanitation at the lowest possible price across Halifax Regional Municipality.

The two met during their time as mature students at Saint Mary’s University and recognized early on that they wanted to work together because of their similar goals and complementary skill sets.

Tim, a husband and father, is a hard worker with a keen eye for detail. Tim operated Bin Buddy as an entrepreneurial project in 2012 and saw the need for an affordable solution to green bin sanitation. He knew that he wanted to launch it as a full scale operation offering his services to a larger customer base. Tim researched and designed the mobile cleaning units that allow them to efficiently service HRM.

Mike, a young entrepreneur who owns multiple businesses, graduated from university in May 2014. He contributes his success to a belief in customer satisfaction and his strengths in strategic management. His talents have helped shape the company to be lean, effective and efficient.

Their combined competencies contribute to how they can offer deep discounted prices as compared to other companies in the industry!

“Help us to decrease our prices by telling your friends, family and neighbors about us!”
