Recycle at Kartaway’s Recycling Depot Before Christmas

Kartaway Adelaide is launching a TV Ad campaign on community TV, Channel 44.  The ads will run two to three times over each weekend.  The point of the advertising campaign is to encourage people to drop off their rubbish for recycling at the Kartaway Recycling Depot prior to Christmas.  Many people like to have a clean-up before Christmas, either because they have visitors over the festive season or to make more room for new goodies!

The TV Advertisement advises people that they shouldn’t wait for the council kerbside pick-up. Mainly, because it can be a long wait and doesn’t always fit in with their schedule. The beauty of dropping waste at Kartaway’s Recycling Depot is that customers can get rid of virtually everything in one load.  The only thing they won’t take is household putrifiable waste (the stuff you put in the council rubbish bin).

Items you can drop off that will be recycled or re-used are:

Pet Plastic Glass Green Waste Oil Builder’s rubble Concrete Cardboard Paper Car and auto parts Whitegoods Old computers Old TVs Old radios

Most waste that is received at the Depot can be recycled or re-used. The Recycling Depot is at Virginia Rd, Newtown (Look for the signs) and is open all weekend from 8am til 4pm. The Depot is open 7 days a week. Fill up your car boot, your trailer, whatever and bring it the Depot. It’s good for the environment and good for you. It’s affordable and easy, clean and accessible.

Factories that generate only a small amount of waste will find the 1.5m3 bin is ideal.  Larger factories will find the  3.0m3 or 4.5m3 bins are more suitable, with the largest bin best suiting factories with a large amount of  waste being collected.

Recycling For Schools in Adelaide

Kartaway specialise in solving waste management problems with a diverse range of customers, such as shopping complexes, factories, restaurants and schools.  For example, they have several elite schools in Sydney as customers and they were able to resolve their waste disposal situation by using their nifty CP50 compactor units.  Being great space savers, the compactors compact waste down, so there was less need for so many wheelie bins and pick-ups were required less often.

School children are now well versed in sound environmental practice and expect to recycle paper, cardboard and most plastics and use their apple cores and orange peels to make rich compost for the school garden.  Kartaway can supply the CP50 compactor units for both general waste and recyclables and they can also set up waste management programs within the school to encourage recycling with cardboard recycling in the classrooms and comingled recycling bins in the playgrounds.  They will appoint a dedicated account manager to your school who will schedule pick-ups to suit the rhythm of your school routine to minimise disruption and noise.

Proud leaders in waste management and recycling Kartaway operate a public Recyling Depot in Virginia Road, Newtown, Campbelltown to which all their collected waste is delivered for recycling.  The Depot is able to recycle most waste collected.  Open to the public 7 days a week it is affordable, clean and accessible.

The reliable, friendly team at Kartaway Adelaide are very experienced in waste management and offer your school a customised waste management plan with your own account manager on call. To speak to an account manager about your school call Kartaway on 1300 362 362.

Novel Ways To Manage Waste

Crowded living and crowded streets may not be a problem in Adelaide, but it certainly is in the city of Sydney.  This week The Sydney Morning Herald reported that wheelie bins in Royston Street, Darlinghurst in Sydney were cluttering the traffic island in the middle of the cul-de-sac and that the City of Sydney had found a novel solution to managing waste in the area. The older style apartment buildings in the street have no space in the front for storing wheelie bins, so residents have been keeping their rubbish bins and recycling bins on the traffic island.  Now it’s completely out of control and has become an eyesore with illegal dumping of rubbish which in turn attracts rats and cockroaches.

The City of Sydney have come up with the idea of pin numbers to access chutes at street level so residents can drop their rubbish into large underground bins for general waste and recycling. The 1100 litre bins would be situated under the present traffic island with scissor lifts raising the bins to street level for collection. This novel approach to waste collection has been included in the City of Sydney’s Draft Waste Policy and is estimated to cost $85,000.

Kartaway are no strangers to similar problems experienced by their corporate customers.  One of their customers with a multi-level corporate building in the heart of Melbourne had lost the use of its loading dock because there were so many wheelie bins cluttering the dock.

Kartaway Compactor Unit   Kartaway  came up with a solution, using their CP50 compactor unit that can compact waste, minimising the amount of space required to store the waste prior to collection.  As the units only require a small amount of space, Kartaway identified that it could install two units for both general waste and cardboard recycling.  They were able to position the compactor units in an area that was underutilised, freeing up the loading dock of all the wheelie bins and giving it ample space for the building’s vital deliveries.

Kartaway are very experienced and can solve organisation’s waste management problems with novel and unique customised waste management programs.  Call 1300 362 362 to speak to an Account Manager about your waste needs.

What is 3m skip bin perfect for?

  • Homeowners – when you’re spring cleaning and you need to get rid of all those items you can’t put in the recycling bin at home – it’s perfect for bricks, old white goods, concrete, old car parts, excess soil and clay and green waste.
  • Home Renovators – it’s perfect to dispose of all the stuff you’ve pulled out -old tiles, old bricks, sheet iron, old bathroom fittings and timber.

How much waste will fit in a 3m skip bin?

The outstanding advantage of a skip bin is that it’s ready when you have waste to dispose of, you don’t have to wait until council has a designated collection day!  Another big plus is that  you can dispose of types of waste the council won’t take, as council will have limitations on certain items, which doesn’t always fit the type of waste you need to get rid of.
