Why you should not fill your bin over the rim

Say it louder for the people in the back! DO NOT fill your skip bin over the rim! Here is why!

1.Safety

Bin2Go Australia has a priority of keeping our customers, staff, and the general public safe when it comes to waste management. If a skip bin is filled up above the rim and the rubbish begins to overflow out materials from the bin could possibly fall out of the bin and onto the road, endangering road users and pedestrians. This creates danger.

2.Illegal

It is actually against the law to transport a skip bin that can’t be safely covered and transported back to the warehouse without bits and pieces falling out.
How to avoid overfilling a skip bin

It is quite simple to avoid overfilling a skip bin. The first tip would be to ensure you’re hiring the right size skip bin!

Followed by lighter objects to fill the spots. Know your skip bins limits! There is a line on the inside of the skip bin which indicates the limit to where rubbish should stop. Stick to the limit and you’ll avoid overfilling.

Dispose Electronic Waste

How to dispose of electronic waste

E-waste (electronic waste), is the waste that comes from electronic devices that are disposed of. Any used electrical or electronic device that is available for reuse, recycling, resale or disposal is also categorized as e-waste. We are one of the highest users of electronics in the world causing the amount of e-waste to be great too.
Electronic waste should not be thrown out in your household bins. E-waste contains hazardous components like cadmium, brominated flame retardants, lead and more. Leaking of these materials into landfills can cause serious danger to people’s health and also our environment.
Tips on how to dispose of electronic waste:

1. First things first - Buy less electronics!
Don’t get caught up in the hype of new products. It creates a whole lot of e-waste! It’s best to reuse your gadgets until it’s actually time for them to go! Buy less!

2. Always try to recycle - Take your e-waste to a recycling centre.
A great way to get rid of your electronic waste is by taking it to a recycling centre. There are many recycling centres around your local areas. There are lots of e-waste drop off points too that are easily found or searched for online.

3. Re-use them! Sell or donate your old electronics.
If your electronics are still in good condition, a good thought is to either sell or donate the old electronics that you no longer want, so that they are reused!

4. Lastly - Send your electronics back to the company.
Many electronic companies allow you to send back electronics you want to dispose of so they can dispose of them appropriately. They even offer trade-ins, discounts or some money back!

It’s so important that whichever way you decide to get rid of your e-waste that it’s not by throwing them away in your normal household bin.
