Bins So Clean was founded in Sacramento, California by husband and wife team Joseph & Vernita Tucker. Their goal was to protect their family from the harmful bacteria inside their trash bins and recycling bins…and eliminate the smelly odors too!
Joseph and Vernita’s two young grandchildren would visit regularly during the summer months. Their dirty diapers, combined with the bags of “gifts” left by their chihuahua Chica, would fill their trash bin with plenty of foul odors. Add to that the heat of summers in Sacramento, and the smell from their trash bins made it nearly impossible to hold family functions in their backyard!
In an attempt to resolve this ongoing dilemma, Joseph and his son Tre found themselves cleaning their trash bins with a hose in their driveway. It was a messy process (to say the least)! One day Joseph received a letter. Inside was a notice stating that cleaning their bins, and allowing waste water to run into storm drains, was illegal. Continuing to do so could result in hefty fines!
Joseph knew that if the Tucker family was dealing with smelly and dirty bins, then there must be more families and homes that face the same issue. The Tucker family was determined to help their community by bringing attention to the growing problem of smelly, bacteria-filled, trash bins and unfortunately didn’t have a way to solve that problem.
