My name is Colm J Halpin, a native of Chicago (Edison Park) and a licensed funeral director. Together with my wife, Kiara Moore Tierney, who is also a Chicago native (Mt. Greenwood) and a healthcare administrator, we are here to take care of your dirty work!

The concept of cleaning garbage cans is not one that we can take credit for. After stumbling upon some YouTube videos of the process, I saw that this met a need. Especially in our area with lots of restaurants and businesses that attract rodents (particularly rats!). Convincing my wife to do this was another matter completely. After being extremely persistent (and a 16-page handwritten business plan that I had to “submit” to my wife) Clean Cans & Powerwashing, Inc. was born.

One might ask, what the heck would a funeral director and healthcare administrator know about cleaning garbage cans and powerwashing? Well, we have both seen some really interesting (and disgusting) things, and we are obsessed with sanitation and serving others. We have all passed trash cans or dumpsters that reek of offensive odors. You think to yourself, that is disgusting, and someone better clean that! Well, I’m your guy. We look forward to serving you!
