Yes, we have. We have written a blog about camping bins…The epitome of excitement we know, and probably the last thing you want to think about before embarking on your next exciting camping adventure. But hey, keeping your camp site clean and leaving minimal impact on our pristine Australian environment and fauna is serious business and worthy of discussion. Especially when many of Australia’s remoter campgrounds don’t actually have waste removal services. Without a doubt, you should be collecting and taking all your trash out of your campsite, no excuses. Sometimes this can be a commitment, however it is well worth it to avoid polluting and ruining the natural environment, where abandoned trash often takes hundreds of years to break down. Although it seems like an effort, there are some ways you can stay committed to keeping the environment clean with absolute minimal effort, such as by getting yourself one of Camping Plus’s fantastic recommended camping bins.
Here’s a list of Camping Plus’s favourite camping bins that can help you save time, effort, and the environment:
This super stylish camping bin is more like a large container that is designed to hang from the side of your caravan. It can be used for storing anything from rubbish to laundry. This snazzy camping bin features:
- a closable with foldable lid on top;
- a zipper at the bottom makes it easy to empty and clean the container;
- a durable, weather-resistant design;
- a foldable for easy storage; and
- can be mounted on the side of a caravan, Ute or 4wd.
The Oztrail Eco Bin is perfect for the campsite and keeps it super clean and tidy as well. This collapsible camping bin has a handy flat folding design which means that there is no excuse for not having one with you on your next camping adventure. This camping bin features a hygienic top lid that will keep mozzies, insects, and animals out for sure. This nifty example is a large camping bin, and once fully extended, stands at a whopping 71 cm. You can use bin liners or normal plastic bags to make full use of this excellent camping bin. The Oztrail Eco camping bin comes with a 1 year manufacturer’s warranty against defects of material or manufacture, as well as a UV stabilised frame. This collapsible camping bin is definitely for the serious camper and will keep your campsite clean and tidy.
The sight of a plastic grocery bag tied to every tent pole is a thing of the past thanks to the Australian made Croc Bin. The Croc Bin was created by two Aussie mates who saw the need for a cleaner, safer and more user friendly way of storing rubbish while on camping adventures. The Croc Bin is understated yet stylish in its design and conveniently accepts standard recyclable grocery bags to store rubbish. The Croc Bin also has a lid that will keep the flies and other critters out, and the stench in. This is Camping Plus’s favourite camping bin.
You can attach the Croc Bin in two ways:
- with a U clamp – the U clamp allows the Croc Bin to be attached to a tent pole or camping furniture; and
- with a wall bracket – if using the wall bracket, this allows the Croc Bin to be attached to the external surface of a caravan or any solid surface, such as a Ute tray or 4wd tyre.
With its collapsible camping bin design, the body of the Croc Bin can be easily removed from its fixed position for cleaning and stowage when traveling. Now you have no excuses for littering on your next camping trip!
