This week we featured in an article promoting the annual Garage Sale Trail. Buying second hand items rather than new items is one of the easiest ways to help the environment.

King Bins supports national Garage Sale Trail 

 
26 September 2016
The simple act of buying and selling at a garage sale can do a lot of good, beyond making some extra money or discovering a bargain. It’s also a way to bring communities together and help save our environment.
The national Garage Sale Trail is now in its sixth year. This initiative sees thousands of garage sales held on the same day across the country and urges sellers and buyers to reduce waste, reuse and recycle unwanted goods. This year’s sale is on 22 October.
 Garage Sale Trail
  Mr Aaron Baker from King Bins recognised the opportunity to support this national event and the local environment and has arranged a large sale at the King Bins’ premises on Gnangara Road, Landsdale.
“All of the items King Bins will be offering at the Garage Sale Trail were originally disposed of in skip bins and would otherwise be destined for raw material recycling. Anything not recyclable would have gone to landfill,” said Mr Baker.
“All of these items are in great, reusable condition. We want to help raise awareness about reusing items, reducing landfill while actively engaging the local community in the recycling process.
“With landfill locations becoming scarce, an increase in levies and of course the devastating impact on the environment, King Bins takes every opportunity to not only reduce, reuse and recycle, but to give back to the community.”
It’s with this spirit that King Bins will be donating all money raised through the garage sale to the First Nations Homelessness Project, which assists families facing eviction from public housing.
 Recycle King Bins
 

King Bins will be offering up such treasures as furniture, home wares, automotive parts, electronics, toys, books and collectibles. They’ll also be putting on a sausage sizzle on the day.
To support your local business, grab a bargain and do something good for the environment and for charity, head along to the King Bins Garage Sale Trail.

 

 


  

King Bins Donates Industrial Oven to UCA Homelessness Project WA

5th September 2016

Around 10,000 people are living on the streets of Perth - no home, no shelter and no food. But one group dedicated to feeding the homeless people of Perth has been given a boost through a generous donation from Perth business King Bins and philanthropic owner, Aaron Baker.

 

United Citizens Australia (UCA) is now the proud owner of an ex-Brumby’s Bakery industrial-sized oven. Aaron acquired the oven - which was removed to make way for an upgrade - and put the call out for any charities that could use it to assist their work.
“At King Bins, I often receive unwanted equipment that’s in perfect working order,” said Aaron.


“Of course I’m going to do what’s right and pass these assets onto people and charities that can make use of them. Steve Veness and Sylvia Taylor from UCA are working hard to change the lives of those on the street, so this was a perfect match.”

Step in the right direction
UCA makes home-cooked meals that are handed out to the homeless in Perth CBD. Steve and Sylvia rely on donations of money, food and clothing to make this happen and were extremely grateful to be the recipient of such an incredible donation.


“Since we started feeding the homeless people of Perth, we’ve had some monetary donations to help out with purchasing groceries… Most of the time though, it’s coming out of our own pocket,” said Sylvia.


“We urgently need donations of meat, fruit and vegetable supplies in order to continue putting smiles on the faces of our homeless people.”
Sylvia and Steve’s ultimate goal is to purchase a property where they can provide food, shelter and teach skills such as woodwork, metal work, fiberglass work and welding.


“Our main goal is to do far more to help the homeless and this gift will help us in our pursuit. We understand what we’re currently doing is like putting a Band-Aid on a broken leg, however it’s a good step in the right direction of gaining respect and trust of the homeless,” added Sylvia.

Giving something back
For Aaron, who is also and active supporter with Ngalla Maya – an organisation that assists aboriginal former-inmates to re-integrate with society – being able to assist charities and groups that are dedicated to improving the lives of those less fortunate is an advantage that he’s committed to making use of. “Through the work we do at King Bins, we’re afforded the opportunity to give back to the community by assisting with donations such as this oven,” said Aaron.


“With thanks to local businesses such as Joondalup City Towing who delivered the oven, we’re able to achieve this and play a small part in changing the lives of those around us. I believe if we see an opportunity to help others, we should make the most of it and do all we can to assist. “This gift has the potential to be life-changing for both UCA and the people they are working with on the street and we’re thankful to be able to offer this assistance.”
