Preparing To Bug-In? Why You Need A Roll-Off Bin Temporarily

Posted on

Bugging-in is a slang term used to describe staying in your home to isolate yourself from the rest of society. With fears of illness becoming more common, many Canadians are looking at how they would handle being isolated in their home for weeks at a time. Beyond the usual shopping trips to gather groceries, first-aid supplies, and more, there may be a need to contact a local waste company to rent a disposal bin. Take a look at a few good reasons to rent a disposal bin if you are making plans to bug-in just in case something happens. 

Clear out what's not necessary to make room for what is. 

You may be lucky enough to have a lot of extra storage space, but if you are not, it is best if you can clear out some of the unnecessary clutter to make room for things that you could actually need. For example, an old stack of magazines may not do you a whole lot of good, so eliminating these to make room for more bottled water would be a wise move. In the process of making your home more worthy of sustaining you if you can't leave, you will find a lot of things that can be eliminated. Things to remember: 

  • Get rid of items that limit your space to move
  • Eliminate items that will serve no value or purpose in a bug-in situation 
  • Maintain the majority of your storage space for food and water supplies

Toss containers while creating bulk supply caches. 

If you are not buying in bulk while you prepare for bugging-in, you can end up with a lot of packaging to get rid of. For example, if you are buying multiple packages of dry beans and rice that you intend to store in five-gallon buckets with lids, you will have a lot of packages to eliminate as you create your cache of supplies. Having a disposal bin on-site will help you have a place to throw all this extra packaging away while you get prepared. 

Make room for guests in your home by eliminating unneeded furnishings. 

If you anticipate others will be bugging in with you, such as your adult children and their spouses or children, you will need to make room for these guests in your home. You may be planning to set up air mattresses or cots, so that they have room to sleep, or installing temporary dividing walls. All of this can take up space, so make sure you clear out unnecessary furniture pieces to make room.
