Australians Turn “Taking The Bin Out” Into A Special Occasion

Stay-at-home orders and quarantine policies are in effect in almost every part of the world now. As such, people can only leave their homes to attend to essential matters. These primarily include grocery runs, trips to the pharmacy and of course, garbage day. Apparently, people in Australia are now considering the latter a special occasion. And they’re celebrating it by dressing up in their best attire. In fact, there’s even a Facebook group called Bin Isolation Outing where they flaunt their finest “bin day” fashion.

Created by Danielle Askew from Queensland, the group boasts over 800K members to date. According to Askew, the idea began when she dared a friend to glam up as she took the bin out.

“My friend put a meme on her Facebook page ‘Day 6 of isolation excited it’s bin night so I get to go out.’ I dared her to dress up for it and she said she would.”

Amazed by the result, Askew went on and created a Facebook group dedicated to the special day. Soon after, more people joined to share their fancy bin day outfits. Even Askew admitted that she didn’t expect the group to go viral. Nonetheless, she’s happy that the group is somehow able to spread some cheer to people during these difficult times.

“I’m amazed at how it has gone viral. I feel people just need a reason to smile, a reason to dress up and a reason to look forward to the next day.”

Askew also revealed how the pandemic has affected her active social life.

“The pandemic changed my very social life to staying home, no social coffees at the cafe, no eating out at fabulous local restaurants, no going out to celebrate my birthday next week!”
