Cheap Skip Bins – Thinking About Where Waste Goes

If you’re currently on the lookout for cheap skip bins to take care of some excess household waste, it’s likely that although price and convenience are important, you also want your rubbish to end up in the right place. As we become ever more aware of the environmental problems that are caused by improper waste disposal, more and more people are interested in learning about how to recycle and reuse more.  Communities that excel at minimising waste are therefore increasingly of interest, so it’s unsurprising that Kanimatsu, a small town with a population of under 2,000 located in southwestern Japan,…

The World of Dumpster Diving

As Junk2Go’s staff know from ample experience, finding a way to dispose of the excess stuff that accumulates over time is a challenge many people face. Even when budgets are tight, it seems hard to live in the modern world without finding ourselves surrounded with things we no longer have a use for, at which point many people find themselves turning towards mini skip bin hire or, better yet, the skip bin hire alternative that Junk2Go offers. However, “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure”, as the saying goes, and accordingly there are some people who do things the other…

Weird Things Found In Skip Bins

4 of the Strangest Things Found in Skip Bins At Junk2Go, we don’t make you rent a skip bin – instead we offer a skip bin hire alternative where we load our bins for you, clean up afterwards, and only charge for the rubbish we take away. As a result, we are able to make sure that everything we take really is junk. Skip bins aren’t usually loaded by the same people who take them away, however, and this can sometimes lead to some strange things turning up in them. We’ve done a little fossicking, and come up with 4…

Kicking the Hoarding Habit – How To Free Yourself of Junk

Kicking the Hoarding Habit Shows like Hoarders and Hoarding: Buried Alive have delved into the personal lives of diagnosed hoarders to highlight the impact Hoarding Disorder can have on one’s personal and family life. Whilst compulsive hoarding is quite rare, lesser variations of the behaviour are commonplace, with many of us claiming ‘sentimental value’ or ‘a collection’ as the reason for our excessive clutter. Now that Autumn is here and Summer well and truly over, we’re starting to dig out the warmer clothes and stow away our BBQs and outdoor furniture. When these simple tasks become a chore (there isn’t…

Auckland User-Pays Rubbish Collection

There has been much debate this week in Auckland about changing the way households dispose of their waste and rubbish, including their recycling. The new system looks likely to be a user-pays system. This could be a system that encourages people to recycle more items (which would be awesome – less waste to the landfill has to be a good thing) – but it also brings up some tricky issues. For example, will people start throwing their rubbish into their neighbours’ rubbish or wheelie bins so they don’t get charged as much? Will people just illegally dump their rubbish to…
