Where to Buy a Flexi Bin in New Zealand - Pink Bins

It’s spring and that means spring cleaning! Oh s#!t! Your rubbish won’t fit in your wheelie bin? No worries! Pink Bins has got you covered! 

What you need is a flexible skip bag! At Pink Bins, we like to call them Pink Bags, but you might have heard them referred to as Flexi Bins. Whatever you want to call them, they make getting rid of a large quantity of mixed rubbish a piece of p!$s and that’s exactly what you need to make your spring cleaning a breeze! 

But where can you even get a Flexi Bin? Well, luckily for you, we happen to know…

Where to Buy a Flexi Bin in New Zealand

First of all, if you’re new to the Pink Bins blog, let’s quickly recap what a Flexi Bin is (and maybe also warn you about our unhinged, Kiwi humour!). Flexi Bins are large bags, similar to a reusable shopping bag, but big enough to fit a small hatchback, that you can use to easily dispose of all kinds of waste (probably not your hatchback though). 

Pink Bags are what we call Flexi Bins around here, because we know pink makes the boys wink! And more importantly, because we think that New Zealanders deserve to dispose of their rubbish super easily, and without staring at a mound of junk or a pile of big black sacks while waiting for their trash collection. 

So, we know what a Flexi Bin is and we know that we like to call them Pink Bags, because everything is prettier in pink, but where to buy a Flexi Bin in New Zealand?

Get it while you’re doing your usual shopping 

If you’re out and about already, you might run into a Flexi Bin on your travels – yay! Convenience! 

You might get lucky (We mean with finding a Flexi Bin, not with whatever you’re sniggering about!) and find a skip bag at The Warehouse, your favourite garden centre, or even in some supermarkets. If you want to get working on removing your waste ASAP (as in right now. Today.), then buying in-store is always a good option.

Generally Flexi Bins come in sizes ranging from 1m2 to 3m3 (if you have more rubbish than that, you might like to consider a Pink Bin instead), so you can pick the size that suits you best. Watch out for varying weight limits too so that you don’t get caught out and have to pay extra fees when it comes time to collect.

It’s your local (hardware store)

If you don’t come across Flexi Bins on your travels, you should be able to find some kind of Flexi Bin at your local hardware store.

However, most stores will only carry a select few options of flexible skip bags, so you might not be getting the best bang for your buck, or they might not have the size that would suit you best. To avoid disappointment, give your local Bunnings, Mitre10, Hammer Hardware, or PlaceMakers a call before you head in, that way you can weigh up your options. 


Of course, unless you are chomping at the bit to put your rubbish in a Flexi Bin right this second, the easiest (and usually the most cost-effective) way to get your hands on a skip bag is to order one online. 

At Pink Bins, we make the process of getting your Pink Bag easy as, and there’s no need to leave the house! Simply order through our website (our price includes postage, collection and disposal, so no need to worry about hidden fees), we’ll send you your Pink Bag in the post ASAP, then all that’s left to do is fill your bag, and give us a shout when you’re ready for us to collect it.

Okay, but which option is the best value for money?

Why choose a Pink Bag?

When we get an order for a Pink Bag here at Pink Bins, we dispatch your Flexi Bin to you as quickly as humanly possible! Not only that, we send your Pink Bag to you packaged in the finest woven, unicorn mane fabric bag*, imbued with 24 karat gold, and encrusted with the highest-quality and rarest pink sapphires (don’t be surprised if your Pink Bag arrives to you in a regular postage bag, those greedy postal workers are notorious for repackaging our deliveries and stealing the gold for themselves, but what can you do, right? It’s the thought that counts anyway!).

When your Pink Bag arrives (most probably in very ordinary packaging), you’ll be able to fill it up with your rubbish, at your leisure, and then simply let us know when you’re ready for us to collect it. 

When you’re ready to say goodbye to your rubbish once and for all, one of our handsome drivers (we don’t mention their looks to objectify them, but our drivers really are startlingly handsome! And very helpful and friendly too!) will come to your place within seven days and take your Flexi Bin away to be sorted at our recycling plant.

Everything of yours that can be recycled will be, and you can sleep easy knowing you’ve done the right thing for the planet! 

…Although you might lose some sleep over where your unicorn mane bag went, but unfortunately, we can’t help you with that. We’re really just here to help Aucklanders dispose of their waste responsibly, and with ease, so feel free to contact us if you’d like any more information on Pink Bags, or any of our other services – we’re always up to spin a good yarn!

*No unicorns were harmed in the making of Pink Bags, or Pink Bin’s packaging materials.
