Garbage Can Washer Cleaning System


The Garbage Can Washer GCW-ITR is designed to wash and rinse the interior of garbage cans sized up to 110 gallons using water, detergent, solvent or hot water. This system uses a high speed rotary nozzle for washing 100% the interior of drums and containers. The construction is heavy duty and includes an internal recirculation tank system with 120 gallons reservoir.

The wash station has a station control box containing a start and stop button and an emergency stop button. The washing station is protected by a safety system to prevent the operator from activating a station when a garbage can is removed prior to the wash cycle being finished.
