FREE GREEN WASTE DISPOSAL  WEEKENDS

BARRETTA WASTE MANAGEMENT FACILITY

SATURDAY 28 AND SUNDAY 29 MAY 2016

Council will accept green waste from Kingborough residents at no cost during the above dates between the hours of 9am and 4pm.

Green waste must be completely free of contaminants including general and hazardous waste, plastic and declared weeds.  Assistance on weed identification is available by contacting Council on (03) 6211 8200 Monday - Friday.  Detection of contaminated green waste may result in disposal fees being applied.

A limit of 5 cubic metres per household applies.  Private and commercial collection operators will be required to pay standard rates for green waste disposal.

Residents are requested to follow directions of site staff and exercise patience as some minor delays may be experienced.  Enquiries relating to the program can be directed to Kingborough Waste Services on (03) 6267 2337.

 

BIDDING AT BARRETTA

Chosen big ticket items will now be open to bids from customers at the Re-Use Shop at Barretta.

Selected items will be published on Kingborough Council’s social media channels, and bids will run for two weeks. All bids must be received in person at the Re-Use Shop and staff will notify the successful bidder.

Jon Wisbey, Manager KWS, said this is an exciting new initiative, created by staff at the shop. “Staff wanted to give more visitors the opportunity to bid on big ticket items, as they are usually out of the door the day they arrive,” he said. “There will be only one big item up for bid at a time, and all bids are welcome in the Shop.”

Plenty of other treasures are waiting to be found at the Re-Use Shop, so come and browse our extensive selection of other pre-loved items.
