Q: How do I keep my Herby Curby® container clean?
A: To clean: use a garden hose and a brush or sponge and wipe the container. If you have allowed your container to get really dirty & grimy then you should use a degreaser like Fantastic and spray the container and let the degreaser soak in before washing the container with warm water and a sponge.

Q: What happens if someone steals my container?
A: When you call us, we will look up the serial number of your container. We request that you check your neighbourhood because sometimes your container can get mixed up with other containers close by. On occasion, our customers will find their container down the street or alley, so it’s a good idea to look for the container. If you are renting the container from us and cannot find it, you should then call your local police and file a report, Reports can be file over the phone and online depending on where you live.. DO NOT CALL 911! After filing the report, call us back with the report number and we will deliver another container for you. You will be charged a small restocking fee.
