Female-owned trash can cleaning company offers consumers its ‘10 Warning Signs’ that their trash cans may be hazardous to their health


Los Angeles, CA – Garbage cans are our least prized possessions. We load them up, haul them out, and drag them back after collection – and forget them for another week. And there they sit, just a few feet from the same homes we spend a small fortune trying to safeguard by purchasing all manner of antibacterial soaps and sprays.

According to Charles Gerba, a noted microbiologist, what people don’t know about their garbage cans could make them sick.

Gerba says that kitty litter, dog feces and food leftovers dumped into trash cans creates a prime breeding ground not only disease-carrying rodents, insects, and maggots and mold, but for potentially harmful bacteria as well, such as salmonella and E.coli – which can cause severe diarrhea, kidney failure, urinary track infections and death.

An LA-Based, female-owned company called Shiny Can is leading the charge to purge Southern California of potentially dangerous and disgusting garbage receptacles one trash can at a time. Founded in 2008 by two former executives weary of corporate life, Shiny Cans charges a modest fee for its curbside, “environmentally green” cleanings – and demand is booming.

“Once people hear about the nasty stuff growing in their trash cans, they want to schedule a truck ASAP,” said Regine Held, CFO and founder of Shiny Can, Southern California’s leading trash can cleaning company. “In a trash can thoroughly cleaned, disinfected and deodorized by the Shiny Can process, about 99% of anything creepy, stinky and perhaps dangerous has been eradicated.”

Here are Shiny Can’s 10 Trash Can Warning Signs (answer True or False) to help consumers determine the cleanliness of their trash cans:

1. The raccoons keep the trash cans cleaner than they do?
2. Based on the gunk at the bottom, they’re not sure if your garbage was picked up or not?
3. Kids want to use the trash can for their next science project?
4. They wonder if that mold-like growth in their cans is mold. Stop wondering!
5. They hear a squish, instead of a clank when they toss a bottle in their can?
6. They’ve gone dumpster diving for lost keys, debit cards, homework, cash, cell phones?
7. Their record for holding their breath when taking out the garbage is 45 seconds?
8. They’ve emptied an entire air freshener in the garbage and it still STINKS?
9. They have a designated outfit (should be a HAZMAT suit) for taking out the trash?
10. People have been known to bring a trash can into the living room at Christmas for easy gift wrapping disposal?

If the answer is “TRUE” to any of the above questions, consumers are invited to contact Shiny Can and learn how they can get a free first time trash can cleaning. For more information, call 1-877-771-1310 or got to
