About Us

Hey Citron, what's with the name?

People are constantly asking us about our name. So, to put that topic to bed, once and for all, here’s the thinking behind that lemon. Literally.

All citrus fruit has a rind or protective skin. The rind is designed to protect the delicate fruit housed inside from disease, pests and other harmful elements.

Unlike it’s close cousin the lemon, a Citron distinguishes itself from other Citrea by having an extra thick rind or skin. It’s this added layer of protection that struck our fancy. Like the fruit that bears our name, we work overtime to give companies that extra layer of protection. Drop the mic!

And what about the Environment?

Healthy doesn’t stop at the service location. We bring healthy into everything we do, which is why we’re leading the way on environmental sustainability. And we’re bringing you with us.

Partnering with Citron Hygiene means taking an active step in reducing your environmental footprint. Throughout our service programs, we’ve integrated ways to eliminate landfill waste, conserve water, and use eco-friendly products. We’ve partnered with local suppliers to recycle all batteries from any product we service to keep them out of landfills. We look for biodegradable alternatives whenever possible. We have a Waste Transfer Licence, so we never leave waste at your facility, helping you avoid waste surcharges. On top of it all, our partnership with Covanta has resulted in enough waste-to-energy conversion to power Ottawa for 5 years. And we’re just getting started.
