Spring cleaning season is upon us, which makes now the perfect time to clear out the clutter and create space in your life!
A clutter-free home is proven to provide plenty of benefits beyond the obvious improved look and general cleanliness of your home.
Read our latest blog to discover five great reasons to declutter your home.
Do you sometimes feel like you’re suffocated by “stuff” in your living space?
When we declutter and remove the junk and unwanted items we’ve been holding onto, our physical space becomes lighter, more open and less overwhelming. But not only does decluttering clear your physical space, it also clears your mind.
Your space can have a great impact on your mental clarity. With a decluttered space, there is less around you competing for your attention allowing you to concentrate on the things that are most important.
When you make the decision to keep something or throw it out, you’re making the decision on what items are most important to you. This can encourage better purchase-making in the future, allowing you to avoid unnecessary spending.
Further, with greater mental clarity, this can spread and allow you to recognise what the important things are in other areas of your life.
Clearing out all your unwanted items allows you to donate them to charity. If you have clothes, accessories, homewares or electrical goods in decent condition they can be donated to various charities who will get great use out of them.
You can donate old blankets and towels to animal shelters, clothes and accessories to homeless and women’s shelters or any other unwanted goods can be dropped off at your local op shop – we bet it makes you feel good too.
We all want a clean and fresh space to live in, but cleaning can often feel like an endless chore.
A declutter not only gives you the opportunity for a deep clean of your house, but also reduces the amount of cleaning you have to do later – No more needless clutter collecting unnecessary dust!
Ever found yourself struggling to find somewhere to put new things? Perhaps you’ve run out of space from excess clutter.
If you live in an apartment or smaller home, utilising space well is essential. By removing items you no longer use or need, you create space for the new and release your home from a claustrophobic feeling.
If you haven’t decluttered in some time, you might need a heavy-duty bin.
You can hire a skip bin from Bonza Bins and make your decluttering process a breeze. It’s the perfect way to remove unwanted junk! We offer quick delivery and affordable prices and will sort through the waste and recycle where possible.
The results are in and Perth’s southern suburbs have topped the list for Australia’s best recyclers!
Data collected from the MyCouncil website found that the Town of East Fremantle and City of Cockburn lead the way for recycling with 61% of material recovered from waste collected, and the City of Fremantle sits at number five with 54% material recovery.
“As a One Planet council we have a target of achieving a 70% community recycling rate by 2020, so while ranking in the top five is a terrific outcome there’s still room for improvement,” Fremantle Mayor Pettitt said.
This is an incredible step in the right direction for recycling efforts and becoming an environmentally conscious city as a whole.

The Importance of Recycling
There are countless reasons recycling is an important part of our environmental upkeep. The most important part of recycling is reducing the amount of waste going into landfills. When recyclable or organic waste is left to decompose in landfills without oxygen, they produce greenhouse gases that are emitted into the ozone layer and contribute to global warming.
Additionally, proper recycling limits the amount of plastic and waste that ends up in our oceans, destroying marine ecosystems and harming ocean life.

Creating a more sustainable and eco-friendly home is becoming a growing priority for homeowners. Let’s explore some simple renovation and upgrade ideas to refresh and update your home in an eco-friendly way.
When renovating and updating your home, you don’t need the newest trends to give your house a modern and stylish look. Consider using other materials such as reclaimed wood, which is both environmentally friendly and injects some charm and character to your home.
It has recently become quite popular for all kinds of home renovation projects. You can use it to restyle kitchen countertops and use it for flooring and feature walls.
You can also repurpose old furniture, giving it a fresh coat of paint or taking parts from it to build into something new.
How do you dispose of the parts you don’t need? Hire a skip bin from Bonza Bins of course!
When buying cleaning products, paint or any other household supplies, be conscious of potentially toxic of harmful ingredients.
Opt for products that are labelled as “eco-friendly” or “green” and ensure you do your research into chemicals and ingredients that may have negative impacts on your health and the environment.
It can be easy to forget that plastic waste ends up in landfills and oceans, harming marine life and taking hundreds of years to break down. There has also been an increasing concern about the toxins plastics release into the environment.
Try to buy glass or metal containers and kitchenware instead of plastic for your home and use your own reusable bags when shopping.
Protect your home from the elements with high-quality insulation. Insulation keeps you warm in the cooler seasons and cool in the warmer seasons and is a far eco-friendlier option to temperature control.
You can avoid using air conditioners and heaters, reducing electricity and gas use, saving you money and protecting the environment.
Not only do indoor plants inject a bright and lively ambience to your home, they are also natural air purifiers. Plants can remove toxins from the air including formaldehyde and benzene, as well as produce oxygen for better, cleaner air to breathe.
Some of our top recommendations are peace lily, fiddle leaf fig and mother-in-law’s tongue.
Looking to give your home a fresh coat of paint? Many traditional paints are riddled with volatile organic compounds (VOCs) which evaporate into the atmosphere and contribute to climate change. The harmful chemicals in paint (such as cadmium, lead and chromium) are also a hazard to human health and the environment.
Low VOC and natural paints tend to limit or eliminate these chemicals and use a water base instead of an oil base. It’s friendlier to your body and the earth.
If you want to rid yourself of not so eco-friendly goods in your home, or you’re looking to renovate or update, consider hiring a skip bin to make a large home overhaul easy.
Are you planning an event? Perhaps your business focuses on events or event management? Well – we’re here to tell you how skip bins can make event waste management a breeze!
Events like concerts and sporting events often produce a lot of unwanted rubbish. It can be a massive burden on a budget without sufficient planning. Large skip-bin hire services are the cheapest and most efficient way to get your post-event clean up underway!
Check out some of the factors you need to consider before hiring a skip bin for event waste management.
The reality is that more people will dispose their rubbish at an event if more disposal options are available to them. However this doesn’t mean you need to cover every inch of your event with skip bins and small bins. Get smart about it.
Consider the needs of the event-goer and imagine the most convenient places, and places someone is most likely to put their rubbish. Popular places to put a small skip bins are near exits and restrooms. This will encourage people to put their rubbish in the bin as they leave.
Skip bins don’t come in one size to fit all. They’re actually available in a variety of sizes to fit the amount of waste your project is producing.
Consider these questions when determining what size skip bin you need for your event.
Once you’ve determined the answers to the above questions you’re ready to rock n roll with your skip bin choice. Music festivals and sporting events are great examples of events that produce a large amount of rubbish.
To solve this you’d want to have a selection of small and large skip bins scattered across the location to encourage people to put their rubbish in the bin. The availability of skip bins on location allows the disposal of rubbish from smaller bins to be emptied quickly and efficiently.
