Refuse vehicle cleaning

You see them on your street every week – refuse vehicles collecting the rubbish, composting and recycling we put out every day. They typically come in two designs, as front- or rear-loading units, and work by picking up waste containers and emptying them into the lorry. They then use a packer blade to compact the waste to reduce its volume.

This equipment gives refuse vehicles a very particular shape and way of working, one that is unlike any other truck. This means that cleaning them needs to be adapted to ensure that every nook, cranny, gap and recess is reached without compromising on quality or health and safety. Our method involves doing away with brushes and using a high-pressure washing system in order to reach every part of the vehicle and its equipment.

Our hygiene specialists will then dig out the internal body of the truck to remove any remaining debris before using specialist chemicals to tackle those final, stubborn areas of dirt. We finish off with one last high-pressure jet wash. The driver’s cab and external surfaces of the refuse vehicle are then cleaned, disinfected and sanitised, leaving it sparkling clean before the next round of refuse collections.

Cleaning

Our environmental credentials

Commercial cleaning and infection control often require the use of chemicals. This is inevitable, particularly when it comes to maintaining food hygiene standards and providing safe patient transportation. Wherever possible, such as on the exterior of buildings, we use very little water or detergents. The water we do use is purified, containing few if any impurities, and the lack of detergents means that runoff can go straight into the drains. Where we do use detergents, they are free of solvent or caustic elements, are fully biodegradable and comply with ISO 9002 requirements.

When we use chemicals, or if we are working on spillages, we use a boom system to trap all wastewater and runoff. This is then pumped to a tank and we remove everything from site ourselves. We hold a waste carriage licence which means that all waste and its transportation and disposal are tracked and can be checked by both regulators and the public to ensure compliance.

  • Ambulance & Patient Transport Vehicle Decontamination

    As well as regular hygiene cleans, ambulances by law require a deep clean every four weeks at a minimum. Once we have finished with them post-swab analysis results are at zero for the most common patient touch points.
