Everything You Can Do With A Skip Bin During Coronavirus Self-Isolation

Everything You Can Do With A Skip Bin During Coronavirus Self-Isolation

Is the Coronavirus keeping you at home with very little to do? We are all best in the safely of our homes. But after just one day, we can go a bit stir-crazy. Although we are currently facing unprecedented times, we must stay busy to keep our minds off ‘worst-case scenario’ worries.

One of the best ways to keep busy during Coronavirus self-isolation is to tend to all the home chores and improvements you’ve been putting off. There’s no excuse about being too busy or having too many social plans. There’s no better time, and no better way to pass the time than to hire a skip bin and start ticking off your to-do list.

As the owner of 4 Waste, a company dedicated to providing the most convenient slip bins in Brisbane, we thought, what better time to share with you some practical uses of a skip bin around the home than now. You don’t even need to leave your home to hire a skip bin – simply order online, and we come to you… it’s the perfect service for such isolated times.

Declutter the house

Nothing is more therapeutic than a good decluttering, and I’m sure a lot of us could do with a little stress relief right now.

Skip bins are practically made for this task. Regardless of whether you’re going to declutter the garage, a spare bedroom, or the entire house, you will find a suitable sized skip bin to meet your requirements.

Junk skip bins, such as those we offer, could not be more ideal. Unlike typical skip bins found on construction sites, our junk skip bins are purposely designed to cater towards household junk – everything that creates clutter! Whether you have VCRs, DVDs, encyclopedias, books, CDs, kitchenware, etc., know we will take it. And more importantly, you won’t risk hurting yourself trying to load our skips. They feature a rear swing door to provide walk-in access.

Take your worries away from COVID-19 and say hello to a new clutter-free house with the help of a skip bin.

Maintain the garden

Once you’ve finished decluttering you home, you can continue to keep busy during these worrisome times by next attacking the garden. If you’ve neglected your garden, then now’s the time to show it some love. And, there’s no better mass garden waste removal solution than a skip bin.

Gardening is said to be one of the most therapeutic things you can do. However, it can also create the issue of what to do with all your garden waste. Seldom is a wheelie bin big enough to contain both household waste and garden waste, which is why a skip bin is awesome.

With a skip bin onhand, you can clip away and cut back to your heart’s content knowing that you have an easy means of disposal. Know that you can also hire green skip bins which are specifically for 100% green waste. At 4 Waste, they cost the same as a junk skip bin, and you’ll be doing your bit to reduce landfill and help the environment.

Out with the old in with the new!

Why not take this time to do a little online retail therapy! No doubt you have old appliances, mattresses, and furniture that you’d love to replace? You’ve probably been holding off doing so only because they’re challenging to remove, am I right?. With a skip bin, they will be a challenge no more. Lift your spirits and help suffering businesses by jumping online to purchase everything you’ve been putting off.

Along with clutter, our junk skip bins accept more substantial items such as furniture, appliances, whitegoods, and mattresses. This means you can quickly clear them away to make room for your new purchases. And you don’t even have to leave the house!


During the deadly Coronavirus outbreak, the safest place you can be is in the isolation of your own home. However, this can be very boring and lead to more worry and even depression. It’s best to stay busy, which is why now’s the perfect time to hire a skip bin.

Stay busy during self-isolation by decluttering your home, maintaining your garden and by throwing away old future and appliances to make way for new online purchases.
