A Community Clean-up can Bring Aussies Together

We believe community clean-ups are a great way to bring Aussies together, particularly during these unsettling times. A good idea is to organise your community to spruce up your local school, college, community hall or sports club with a good clean-up, and Bookabin is there to help take away all the rubbish you collect. We’ve got some useful suggestions for event organisers, starting with recruiting volunteers early!

You also need to make sure your community event lines up with the dates your local skip company is open, which in the case of Bookabin, is seven days a week! Check our Skip Bin Size Guide here.

It’s a good idea to tell neighbours, friends, community members, local businesses, and other organisations about your event by creating a flyer highlighting the details of the clean-up and distributing it. You can also promote the event on social media, and ask neighbourhood organisations to promote the event in their newsletters. Supermarket notice boards are also a great way to promote your event.

When you are ready, use our skip hire website and it will search our large network of skip suppliers’ current stock and prices, and instantly present you with the best price available for a skip bin meeting your specific skip hire requirements.

Community cleanups bring out the best in people.

What is Hazardous Waste?

Sometimes the identification of your waste type is normally fairly straight forward, however, we have provided a simple guide as to what you can and can’t place in your Bookabin skip hire. The waste type affects the skip bin hire costs so it is important to choose the right bin hire for your requirement; if any prohibited waste is disposed of in the rubbish bin skip, additional waste disposal charges will apply and that can be an expensive hassle for you.

A General Waste bin, suitable for light domestic and commercial waste, can take light domestic waste, light construction waste, office waste and green garden waste.

What cannot go into a General Waste bin is hazardous waste. This includes TV’s, monitors, fridges, paints, solvents, liquids or any asbestos. To dispose of any of these materials you need to contact your local council. They will be able to provide you with a contact who can dispose of anything hazardous or not accepted in your skip bin.

There’s been some crazy hazardous rubbish left in skip bins over the years, like machine guns and top-secret Nazi documents! Check out more strange things found in skip bins right here.

Post COVID-19 Moving Made Easy With BookaBin

As we all come out of the enforced COVID-19 lockdown, many of us were prevented from moving home, as we had originally planned, so now we can ‘get moving with our move’. Here are some tips from BookaBin to help make moving an easier task.

Moving home can be a bit overwhelming, but making a list and making all necessary preparations can help you accomplish the move more easily. Making a detailed plan with detailed steps will help you stay focused.

Check that you have a budget and know how much you will spend. Nobody wants unnecessary pressure on their finances.

From experience, we highly recommend setting a timeline for each of your steps. This may include de-cluttering, packing, and cleaning.

  • Make sure you give yourself more time than you need
  • Start decluttering as early as possible, and you may want to dedicate a few hours a day to declutter your current home until you get rid of everything you don’t need
  • Decluttering from room to room will save you time, and ensure you don’t miss out on a thing
  • Make sure you get rid of or donate your unwanted and unused items
