Dumpster pad cleaning is a necessary part of operating a restaurant or grocery establishment. In fact, at the state and local level, the Department of Health requires regular cleaning and sanitizing of the refuse disposal area.
N.J.A.C. 8:24 “Sanitation in Retail Food Establishments, Food and Beverage Vending Machines and Cottage Food Operations” states in section 5.5, that " Soiled receptacles and waste handling units for refuse, recyclables, and returnables shall be cleaned at a frequency necessary to prevent them from developing a buildup of soil or becoming attractants for insects and rodents. " Further, the establishment can either provide " Suitable cleaning implements and supplies such as high pressure pumps, hot water, steam, and detergent shall be provided as necessary for effective cleaning " or, alternatively, a cleaning service, like Sussex Softwash may be contracted to perform this essential service. There is an expectation for effective cleaning "around and, if the unit is not installed flush with the base pad, under the [dumpster] unit". We are well-equipped to provide this service so that you can focus on your day-to-day operations.
Oily food residues and algae build-up makes the area around the dumpster slippery and presents a slip and fall risk to your employees. Regular cleaning removes these slippery residues and buildup to reduce risks to you and your team.
