The BIGbin Company are delighted to announce that we have teamed up with The Irish Men’s Shed Association. A Men’s Shed is any community based, non-commercial organisation which is open to all men where the primary activity is the provision of a safe, friendly and inclusive environment where the men are able to gather and/or work on meaningful projects at their own pace, in their own time and in the company of other Men’s Shed members and where the primary objective is to advance the health and well-being of the participating men. Men’s Sheds may look like a normal shed in your back garden but they innovatively share some characteristics of community, education and health promotion projects. There are currently 200 Men’s Sheds across Ireland with almost 6,000 men attending their local sheds on a regular basis.
The Irish Men’s Shed Association has recently developed a new membership card known as a “Shedders Card”. This card offers members special privileges, discounts and special offers across shops and services throughout Ireland. The BIGbin will be offering all Shedders Card holders 20% off the use of any BIGbin unit throughout Ireland. We will also be providing sheds with free tickets to use our waste disposal service.
The BIGbin Company is a pay-as-you-go waste disposal service operating in various areas around Ireland, see here for a full list of locations. The premise of the BIGbin is that we install waste compactors on petrol forecourts and retail outlets across the country. We offer our customers huge savings and with the BIGbin there is no need to worry about annual fees, contracts or missing your collection day. Our units are open 7 days a week which means you can drop your waste off whenever suits you.
Stop dancing to someone else’s tune when it comes to your own waste and march to the beat of your own drum! Our BIGbin units are extremely easy to use and based on customers using the bins every two weeks for one year they can reduce their waste bill by over 50%. All you have to do is fill two of your own black bags or waste and bring them to your local BIGbin unit. Purchase your ticket in the shop/petrol station, key in the code into the unit and through in your two bags of rubbish, it’s that easy!
