Do You Need a Skip Bin?

Posted on Thursday, June 15th, 2017

It’s a yes or no question, but it’s one that not everyone knows the answer to. There are several factors that come into the decision of whether or not to hire a skip bin, and it can leave homeowners wondering whether they actually require one, or whether they can do the work themselves.

In order to help you along in the process of decided, we’ve put together some of the top reasons you might need a skip bin, and how to know whether or not you should hire one.

Home Renovations

One of the top reasons people decide to hire a skip bin is because they are renovating their homes. Often, the amount of waste created from removing old appliances, flooring, pipes, etc. combined with the packaging that needs to be thrown away once the new items are delivered is too much for people to deal with on their own. As a result, they find it easier to hire a skip bin, making it easy for them to have all of their rubbish and debris in one place, ready to be collected and removed at a time that’s convenient for them.

No Hassle

Whether you’re renovating your home or putting on a large event, there is enough stress involved without having to consider the clean up afterwards. Skip bins make it easy to remove every scrap of waste with absolutely no hassle or inconvenience to you. All you need to do is place the rubbish in the bin, and then it is out of your hands. The skip bin team will take the waste from you at the agreed upon time, and you’ll never have to worry about it again.

Helping out the environment has never been easier – with skip bins, your waste will be sorted by the team and deposited in the right place, meaning you won’t have to stand with a bottle in your hand, wondering whether or not it should go into recycling. Once your skip bin has been removed, you can rest at ease that you’ve put your waste in the hands of people who are dedicated to responsible disposal.

Cost Effective

If you know you have a large amount of waste to dispose of, it’s likely that hiring a skip bin will be the most cost effective way of having it removed. You can tailor the size (and therefore the price) of your bin to your requirements, and everything is settled in one quick payment. The alternative of relying on hiring daily rubbish pick up is a cost that can quickly add up.

The Best Time of the Year for Renovations

Posted on Monday, May 15th, 2017

When it comes to home renovations, getting started isn’t always easy. You might have an idea of what your perfect home looks like in your mind, but no idea how to get there. You might know everything that needs doing, right down to the last detail, but just have no idea where to start. Or you might not have a clue what’s best for you home at all, and be relying on the advice of professionals to guide you along.

Whatever the case, home renovations can be stressful, no matter how well you’ve planned, and one of the most stressful parts is knowing when to begin.

For the most part, any renovations can be undertaken at any time of the year, but there are certain climates that contribute to making the job just a little bit easier.

Winter Months

As the middle of the year creeps toward us and the weather starts to cool off a bit, the prime climate for outdoor renovations appears. The colder, dry air and the harder ground makes it easier to dig into the ground and set down strong foundations for expanding your home, whereas the humid air of the warmer months makes it more difficult.

Spring Months

When the cold weather begins to drop away and the sun starts to shine a bit more, it’s a great time to consider any outdoor renovations. Having decks or patios installed can take time, and getting them ready before summer hits has the dual benefit of ensuring the builders are not toiling away in the heat, and knowing that your outdoor area will be ready for you to relax on all summer long.

Other outdoor renovations such as barbeque pits and swimming pools can also be fitted during the spring time, ready to make your summer even more amazing.

Summer Months

In Australia, the weather isn’t shy about letting you know when summer has arrived. The hot weather can make working outside almost unbearable, which makes indoor renovations the best for the hotter months.

Bathroom and kitchen renovation are particularly popular during these months, and if you’re lucky enough to be going on holiday, scheduling your renovation for the same time could mean that you avoid the trouble of living in a building site, and return from your holiday to a brand new kitchen, bathroom, or living area.

Autumn Months

Many people insist that the autumn months are the best time of the year to have any renovation work done, as the weather is the perfect balance between too hot and too cold. Much like spring, it is a great time to have outdoor work completed, although places that have high chances of rain throughout autumn may want to be careful about having extensions and foundations fitted during this time.

When Is the Best Time for You?

All the advice in the world about the best time to renovate your home is useless if you yourself aren’t ready. One of the most important things you can do when it comes to renovation and DIY is to do your research thoroughly. Finding out how much it’s going to cost, what materials you’re going to need, and which contractors you want to complete the job are just the first steps.

Having your kitchen renovated in summer might seem like a great idea, but if you’re not ready for it, it will only cause you stress and trouble.

6 Household Items to Get Rid of Today (Optimised)

6 Household Items to Get Rid Of Today

Posted on Saturday, April 15th, 2017

6 Household Items to Get Rid Of Today

When it comes to household clutter, it tends to sneak up on us. We often don’t realise that we’ve been hoarding Christmas cards from the past five years until we open a cupboard and end up covered in them.

Throwing things away can be difficult, but here are seven household items you can absolutely throw away today to free up space and declutter your home. We promise you won’t miss them.

 

Old Toys / Clothes / Costumes

While we adults might be a bit stubborn when it comes to throwing away old items, our kids are notorious for it. Their toy boxes are filled with games they haven’t played in years and their wardrobes are bursting at the seams with old Halloween costumes and clothes that haven’t fit them properly since they were a toddler.

It’s time to put your foot down – throwing away any torn or broken items and donating anything that hasn’t been used or worn for a couple of years will free up plenty of space, likely to be filled with yet more toys and games!

 

Broken Items

We’re all guilty of holding onto items that don’t quite work anymore, but aren’t entirely useless. Old, fraying wires that only charge your phone 10% of the time, umbrellas that don’t extend fully, chests of drawers that have units hanging out at odd angles, and old suitcases with dodgy wheels and missing handles are all great examples of broken household items that should be thrown in the bin immediately.

 

Space Hoarders

We’ve yet to find one person who doesn’t have a drawer in their home dedicated to miscellaneous items. Whether it’s wires and cables from a TV set that you owned in 1999 or remotes for a VCR that was long ago taken to the tip, we can guarantee that if you haven’t used it in the 10 years it’s been there, you’re never going to use it. Throw it out and make some space for something you actually need.

 

Items Lost to Technology

When was the last time you sat in front of your expansive DVD collection and pondered over what film or TV series you wanted to watch this evening? How about the last time you scrolled through Netflix’s Recently Added category? Over the last few years, a lot of household items have been replaced within much smaller technological casings, so take all of your old books, DVDs, VHSs, CDs and mobile phones to your local charity shop and bask in your newly freed up living room space.

 

Old Hobbies

You might have been dedicated to teaching yourself the drums when you first got the kit, but now it’s four years later and you still can’t carry a beat. Donate your dusty musical instruments, knitting materials, paint canvases, and tennis gear to someone who’ll get some real use out of them and carry on in your search to find a hobby that won’t collect dust.

 

Kitchenware

We’re not saying you need to throw out all of your pots, plates, and pans and spend the rest of your life eating from paper plates, but we are suggesting you take stock of your kitchenware. Whether you’re guilty of holding onto discoloured tupperware with mismatching lids or you have well over 50 mugs and glasses for a family of four, it might be time for you to have a clear out and free up some kitchen space.
Most of the items listed above can be placed in a regular bin, recycled, donated, or taken to a tip, but if you’re considering a more dramatic cleanup or renovation, contact Bonza Bins today to discuss hiring a skip bin!

Why is The Block a Blockbuster? Aussies Love Renovating!

Posted on Wednesday, March 15th, 2017

Aussies Love The Block!

Who doesn’t love spending an evening relaxing in front of the newest reality TV show? You might call it a guilty pleasure, but we have to admit that we, along with well over a million other Aussies, love The Block.

With the announcement that The Block 2017 has started auditioning for its newest contestants, we’ve had renovation on the brain. Sitting back and watching as other people try to create a modern masterpiece out of a rundown complex is almost as fun as getting up and doing it yourself!

…And Check out how Crazy we are about Renovating!

So why does Australia love The Block so much? Well, research tells us that it’s because we love to renovate. Whether we’re ripping up our carpets in favour of tiles or stipping off our wallpaper to splash on some paint, a study by Ron Morgan Research found that 62% of Australian homeowners carried out some form of renovation in 2016. That’s 8.4 million homeowners.

That isn’t to say that all homeowners are dedicated $100,000 to their renovation budget å la The Block. In fact, the most popular type of home improvements are more minor renovations, with 5.8 million Aussies (43%) putting money toward small alterations and 3.7 million giving their homes a fresh lick of paint on their walls, window sills, and ceilings. These smaller renovations can help to give homes a new lease of life without the big budget.

Compared to the 43% of Aussies mentioned above, only 17% of homeowners (around 2.2 million) spent in excess of $5,000 renovating or extending their homes – however, this is still 300,000 more than recorded in 2013, which shows that home renovations in all areas are on the rise.

It was also recorded that homeowners who moved into their abodes less than 12 months ago were more likely to shell out the big bucks for home renovations, while those who had been settled into their homes for longer were content to leave their homes be.

Are you Planning to Renovate?
