You will need to clean your Epsom and Ewell council issued wheelie bin regularly. Failure to clean your bin will leave it dirty, smelly and attract pests. Surrey Jet Washing recommend monthly wheelie bin cleans to stop the build up of dirt and grime. In 2017 Epsom and Ewell issued 140 litre sized black refuse bins to all residents; although, pre-2017 the black refused bins were 180 litres. We will break this blog into two sections, the disinfectant, and the jet wash. Finding that following our tips to wash your Epsom bin will leave it clean and fresh.


You should use an environmentally friendly and strong disinfectant to penetrate the stubborn grime. There is a lot of debate over the best disinfectant to use, with many people having their favourite choice. Although, the conclusion is that it does not make a huge difference. Household disinfectant from your supermarket is suitable. Mix it up as the manufacturer suggests into the bottom and sides of your Epsom and Ewell council wheelie bin with some hot water.

Jet Wash

Connect your high-pressure jet washer as the manufacturer recommends. Then use the high-pressure lance to blast all the dirt and grime from the sides and bottom of your bin. If necessary, use a long bristle brush to scrub the dirt from the bottom and sides of the Epsom and Ewell issued bin. Once all the dirt and grime has been jet washed off and dislodged, rinse away the dirty water and dispose of the water responsibly.

In summary, your Epsom and Ewell council wheelie bin should be cleaned regularly, or it will become dirty and attract pests. Further, use an environmentally friendly disinfectant, long bristle brush and jet washer to thoroughly wash your Epsom bin. Surrey Jet Washing can arrange monthly, quarterly, or one-off wheelie bin cleans, leaving your bin clean and fresh.
