The Brand

The invention of the mobile refuse bin-cleaning machine came about as a result of a number of the public complaining about how difficult it was to wash the 240L refuse bins after the Municipality had emptied it. It was found that not only was it a dirty, smelly job but that there was also a tremendous waste of both water and cleaning chemicals. Even with a lot of time and “elbow grease”, the bin would never become completely clean. Kleen Bin then decided to invent a machine that would take care of his problem. After many trials and errors, a working proto type was built.

Once the proto type was developed and fully functional, we approached a patent lawyer who immediately saw the potential and began the patent process, which has subsequently been approved. Patent Number 98/10084.

The pilot operation was launched in Cape Town in 1997 and has since grown with 60 Franchises being opened to date.

Our Commitment:

In the times in which we are living, a healthy environment has become a priority. Kleen Bin (Pty) Ltd has made it our business to contribute towards this goal by putting ourselves in the position to professionally clean, disinfect and deodorise refuse bins. A bin cleaned by Kleen Bin is left free from harmful bacteria and noxious smells, substantially reducing potential infestation by flies and maggots after each visit.


Through a combination of water under pressure and cleaning detergents, the patented mobile Kleen Bin machine is able to clean up to four bins at one time. It operates by spraying a strong jet of water, mixed with the detergent into the bins, which are mounted upside down on the frame of the machine. This has proven to be a very efficient and effective means of cleaning soiled refuse bins. It has further proved cost effective as the machine filters and uses recycled water. Only SABS approved and M and L Laboratory Services (Pty) Ltd. tested, biodegradable detergents are used during the cleaning process, which ensures that the environment is not damaged during or after the cleaning process.
