Moving House Made Easy with Skip Bins

Posted on Saturday, April 20th, 2019

How prepared are you for your upcoming move? It’s always more complicated than you envisioned. The solution? Skip Bins. Skip bins are your friend and will remove a lot of the pre-move and moving day stress. Learn the best way to plan your move, and how skip bins can help declutter your space.

Preparation

The move day doesn’t have to be a stressful ordeal. Plan it right, and you’ll be settling into your new home in no time! It’s best to tackle it bit by bit, and well before the moving day (or moving week).

The month before the move:

  1. Plan your travel arrangements – do you need to hire a moving van?
  2. Collect your packing supplies – cardboard boxes, tape and storage boxes.
  3. Book with Bonza Bins to secure a skip bin.
  4. Declutter your home with a skip bin.

If you’re super prepared and ready to tackle the clean up well before the move – hire a skip bin a month in advance. Skip bins are great for green waste, household items, and furniture. Before you pack, it’s good to assess what you do or don’t need to bring with you. Sort out your space with a skip bin, and then focus on packing up your space.

Furniture

Consider this: Why move furniture from one house to another, if you don’t plan to keep it? Transporting furniture between locations can be a big stress on moving day – especially if you don’t have the funds for a moving van. Save yourself the stress, and hire a skip bin! Eliminate the cost of transporting furniture you don’t intend to keep long term and dispose of it with a skip bin.

Tip: Dispose of unwanted furniture well before the move date. This will give you the chance to save for any new furniture you need to purchase for the new house.

Household Waste

Packing up belongings and moving furniture exposes a lot of hidden mess. Over the time household waste builds up  – whether you knew it or not! Red waste or yellow recycle bins are not suitable for major clean outs. Skip bins (from an eco-friendly provider) are the best solution. Bonza Bins provides a green skip bin service for all your moving needs – check out our website for more information on pricing, and bin sizes.

Convenience – Save Time and Money!

Moving is time-consuming enough, without adding household waste and unwanted furniture on top of it. Instead of loading up the car full of rubbish – hire a skip bin! Before the move, clear out your space and dispose of any unwanted goods into a skip bin. Not only will you save time, but you’ll be saving money. With no disposal or transport fees, you can put the spare change towards decorating and furnishing your new space!

Bonza Bins provides a quick delivery service for your skip bin, at cheap competitive prices. For skip bin hire in Perth – or if you have any questions specific to your skip bin needs contact us today!

5 Common Recycling Mistakes Aussie Homeowners Make

Posted on Wednesday, March 20th, 2019

How often do you look at something and wonder whether or not it can be recycled? Instead of incorrectly throwing materials into the waste bin, let’s get educated on the best recycling practices! Check out everyday recycling mistakes that most Aussie householders make. You’ll never question it again – this guide is that foolproof!

Canned Goods

Canned goods? Only if they’re clean, dry and empty. You’ve come this far, you’re putting it in the yellow bin. You’re halfway there! Finish the job by giving all cans a quick rinse when you’ve finished removing the contents. When cans come to the recycle plant unwashed, they’re unusable. Put in the extra effort and make sure your waste is recyclable – the planet will be a little greener for it!

Cardboard Boxes

Cardboard boxes are easily one of the most recyclable household items. The bigger the better! However, the recycling plant is unable to process large un-flattened cardboard boxes. Make the recyclers job easier, and flatten your cardboard boxes. By flattening the boxes, you can also squeeze more into the recycling bin – it’s a win-win.

Aerosol Cans

There’s much debate about the aerosol can, but what’s the truth? Technically yes – aerosol cans are recycled as long as the can is empty. If the aerosol can contains product inside of it, it’s considered hazardous waste.

In Western Australia recycle plants have stopped processing aerosol cans because of the explosion and fire risks. For safety, double check with your local council for their policy on aerosol cans. Alternatively, collect the cans and dispose on hazardous waste drop off days. Confirm with your council about their hazardous waste collection days, and or drop off zone.

Plastic

Soft plastics are a no-go. Soft plastics get caught in the recycle plant machinery and halt production. Soft plastics include bread packaging, plastic bags, tissue boxes, and plastic film. But soft plastics don’t have to go to waste. It’s encouraged to put all soft plastics into the RedCycle bins located at all Woolworths and Coles supermarkets.

Extra tip: Don’t bag recycled goods. Whether the contents inside the bag are recyclable or not, if the contents are bagged they will not be processed at recycling plants.

Paper

Recycling paper is simple – recycle away! From books, magazines, newspapers, it’s all recyclable as long as you remove any staples or paperclips that may be attached. However, shredded paper or any contaminated paper towel cannot be recycled.

Easy recycling solution!

Do you have a big project with a lot of recyclable materials? Stop squeezing everything into the yellow bin – get a skip bin! Skip bins are an efficient way to recycle household goods, green waste and building materials. Bonza Bins provides an eco-friendly skip bin service, with a mission to recycle as much as we can process. Never think twice about what you can or can’t recycle again.

Summer Clean Out Made Easy with Skip Bins

Posted on Wednesday, February 20th, 2019

Christmas is well and truly over, but the mess it created is still lingering. It’s not too late to get a jump on all the new year promises you made to yourself. In fact – we have a skip bin for the old you. Check out the five different ways you can use a small skip bin to give your home a proper summer clean out.

Cardboard boxes

Do you have a bunch of leftover cardboard boxes from Christmas? From old appliances, furniture or toy boxes – you name it, it’s probably cluttering your space and cramping your style. They all add up quickly, and before you know it you’ve got a shed full of cardboard boxes that you’re pretending don’t exist. We see you. Don’t hide. You’ll feel much better if you take the plunge and get rid of them in one hit. With a skip bin, you have the power to get rid of all the cardboard boxes – as well as other clutter hiding behind the cardboard boxes.

Old Toys

The toys just keep on coming and coming, whilst the old get thrown to a corner. Embrace Marie Kondo and truly ask yourself whether the toys spark joy. No? OK. It’s time to sort through the old. If you’re not able to donate the toys, use a small skip bin to declutter your space. Remember to use a green skip bin service so that all the toys have the potential to be recycled!

Green Waste  

The easiest way to clean up your outdoor space is to hire a skip bin for all your green waste. Recycled items like grass clippings, leaves and branches are appropriate for a small skip bin, and make the tiring process all that much more manageable!

Big Furniture

New year, new you and some new furniture! You’ve started the year on a high, and you’ve decked your home out with some new big furniture. The trouble is…getting rid of the old furniture. Whilst we understand this can drag your style, there is an easy, and cost-efficient solution: a small skip bin! If Gumtree doesn’t want it, throw your old couch, fridge, mattress or dining table into a green-friendly skip bin. Now with a clear space and a clear mind, you can enjoy your new furniture.

Household Items

Whether you’ve noticed the build-up of household rubbish or not, it’s there, and it’s angry. It’s time to nip it, and declutter your space so you can focus on the more important things in life. Use a small skip bin to get rid of any waste laying about in your home. Don’t think twice, we promise you that you don’t need that duck figurine you picked up on a whim.

Tips to Reduce Waste on a Construction Site

Posted on Friday, January 25th, 2019

On a construction site, there’s a lot to keep track of, and sometimes complex operations and disorganisation result in the loss of materials. This makes recycling products and managing waste difficult to do properly, and consequently create a waste of money and resource. Read on to find out what kind of materials on a construction site can be recycled, and what to do differently to ensure you’re getting the most out of your materials for your project.

What is Recyclable?

Before you begin your next project,  create a list of the kinds of materials you’ll need and how much waste you’ll be producing. With this in mind, reconsider the type of materials and the most efficient way the materials can be used.  

Recyclable materials:

  • Glass (most)
  • Drywall
  • Wood
  • Concrete
  • Asphalt
  • Metal
  • Paper
  • Cardboard
  • Carpeting
  • Tiles
  • Aggregates (gravel, sand, crushed stone)

With so many recycled material options available, it’s easy to plan a project around them. However, there are a select few materials that don’t have recyclable options.

Unrecyclable materials:

  • Wallpaper
  • Old paint cans
  • Broken glass
  • Some plastics

It’s important to separate these materials from recyclable materials wherever possible.

To save money, consider thinking outside the box. Anything that can be repurposed ultimately saves money and reduces future costs.

Green Design

In the moment, it’s easy and convenient to forget about the proper recycling procedures. Planning ensures that waste can be kept to a minimum wherever possible.

During the design phase of a project, consider integrating a sustainable design. Green design ideas include: choosing sustainable materials, repurposing readily built products, pre-calculating the exact amount of materials needed, and creating a space to store materials on/off-site to avoid theft and damage.

How to Sort Waste with Skip Bins

Sorting through waste on a construction site can be a timely task. But if you want to ensure your materials are being sorted, recycled and repurposed properly, hire an eco-friendly skip bin service. Eco-friendly skip bin services will sort through your materials and recycle accordingly.

However if you’re disposing materials and waste yourself, consider sorting materials throughout your project. Keep one bin for recyclable materials, and another for waste.
