It's not clear to me what you are trying to do and what the issue here.
Specifically, I'm not sure what you mean by "getting" from the queue and
"cleaning" the queue.

If you are consuming from the queue, logically the messages should not appear
again on the queue (unless you are rejecting them). Are you experiencing
redelivery of messages that you have consumed already?
