HyVee Installing Automated Cart-Cleaning System
October 27, 2020 7:20pm
Hy-Vee will soon become the first grocery chain to implement an automated cleaning system that fully cleans and sanitizes shopping carts after every use.
By mid-November, more than 200 Hy-Vee stores across its eight-state region will have a Sterile Cart system in operation. The innovative system cleans several carts quickly and consistently, eliminating the need for store employees to manually clean each cart throughout the day. Additionally, it cleans and sanitizes the entire cart, and not just the handles and high-touch areas.
Sterile Cart is manufactured by Minnesota-based IZZA Manufacturing and distributed by Ultra Green Packaging. The system was conceived and designed specifically to help mitigate the spread of the coronavirus.
The Sterile Cart system uses a low-pressure spray system and a dry-in-place disinfectant. It has a small footprint and can easily be installed where shopping carts are returned and staged for customer use.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, Hy-Vee stores have regularly cleaned carts throughout the day, and have sanitation wipes available where customers grab a cart.
