    It is FREE to join Bin Weevils - you can play games, plant a garden, decorate your nest and chat to friends with a free account. But if you want to unlock loads of cool extras in the Binscape such as writing your own magazine, opening a photo studio, creating your own party room, adopting a Bin Pet, joining the Secret Weevil Service and much more, then you will need to subcribe to a Bin Tycoon membership. To subscribe to Bin Tycoon or to learn more about all the fun features you'll get, check out the Membership Page.

    What is Mulch? What are Dosh Coins?

    Mulch and Dosh are different kinds of Bin Weevil money. You can see how much Mulch and Dosh you have by looking on the left hand side of your screen. You can spend these on nest items, food, plants, mission hints, a Bin Pet and more!

    How do I earn Mulch?

    There are many ways to earn Mulch. Each day, you can earn Mulch by playing games around the Binscape, such as the Daily Brain Strain, Weevil Wheels, Konnect Mulch and more. Just have a walk around all the areas and you'll soon find a great game to play! You can also get a chance for some free Bonus Mulch by collecting a Mulch-tastic ticket every day.

    Bin Tycoon Members earn additional Mulch from running their Bin Tycoon businesses.

    How can I earn Dosh Coins?

    If you are a Bin Tycoon member, you will receive a monthly Dosh salary. If you are not a Bin Tycoon, or if you're a Bin Tycoon who needs a bit more Dosh, you can purchase Dosh Coins on the Membership Page.

    You can also find some Dosh Coin rewards on your BinCard, so make sure to stamp it daily!

    How do I get to a higher level?

    To level up, you need to earn Experience Points (XP). To see how much XP your Bin Weevil has, and how much you still need to earn before you level up again, hover your mouse over the Level icon on the left side of your screen.

    How do I earn Experience Points?

    You can earn Experience Points (XP) through a variety of Bin activities such as:
    • Buying nest items in the Shopping Mall
    • Getting your nest rooms rated by other Bin Weevils (the more rooms you have, the more XP you will earn)
    • Taking part in the Daily Brain Strain in Lab's Lab
    • Playing multiplayer games
    • Taking part in SWS missions
    • Planting and harvesting your garden
    • Stamping your BinCard

    How do I perform a more impressive special move?

    When you level up, you may be rewarded a new special move. Sometimes the special move will be an upgrade to an existing move. You can tell when moves have been upgraded because they will be coloured differently. To perform a more impressive move, click and hold the move until it has finished cycling through the colours, then release and click on the floor to perform the move.

    How do I feed my Bin Weevil?

    You can buy food from Tum's Diner (found next to Rum's Airport) or Figg's Cafe (found beside Rigg's Movie Multiplex). You might also find special food at parties, or you can buy an ice cream on Mulch Island!

    What is Nest Rating / Nest Coolness?

    Nest rating is when another Bin Weevil visits your nest and rates each room by clicking on the rating stars. Your overall nest rating will be displayed on the Nest Coolness board inside your nest. Your Nest Coolness also goes up when you redecorate your nest or add more items. (Please remember, just because a Bin Weevil is visiting your nest it does not mean they have to rate your nest.)

    How do I invite other Bin Weevils to my nest?

    Click on the Bin Weevil you wish to invite to your nest. Then click on the ‘Invite To My Nest’ button (a picture of a house). Sending out a nest invitation does not always mean the other Bin Weevil will accept it and visit your nest.

    Why isn't my Nest Coolness going up?

    To make things fair in the Bin, there is a maximum number of nest ratings you can get each day. But the more rooms you have, the more ratings you can get, and the more XP you can earn in a day. Your Nest Coolness also changes depending on which nest items you have displayed inside your nest rooms.

    How can I buy more rooms for my nest?

    To buy more rooms, visit Rigg's Property Shop inside the Shopping Mall. You will need to be a Bin Tycoon Member to unlock additional nest rooms.

    How do I decorate my nest / change the items in my nest room?

    First, you will need some nest items.Visit the Shopping Mall to buy some, then go back to your nest to decorate your room. Your nest items are stored in the 'My Stuff Box'. Make sure you are standing in the room you want to decorate, then click on the treasure chest icon at the bottom left of your screen to begin. Drag the item out of your inventory and position it in your nest room. To put an item back in the box, open the treasure chest first, then select the item and drag it back down into the inventory.

    What is the delivery time?

    The delivery time is the time that you have to wait before the nest item you have bought appears in your 'My Stuff Box.' If you mouse over an undelivered item in your inventory, you will see how long you have left before your item arrives.

    Where will my nest items be delivered?

    Your nest items will be delivered to your 'My Stuff Box' in your nest. Click on the treasure chest to see your nest items.

    Why can't I buy some nest items or play some of the games?

    You may need to achieve a higher level - this will unlock new features, special moves and nest items. Some items, shops, areas and games are only for Bin Tycoon Members, so you will need a Bin Tycoon Membership to access these.

    What is a Nest Power Generator?

    Your Nest Power Generator provides fuel to power your nest. The more rooms and nest items you have, the more fuel you will need.
