In 2019, the trailer collected almost 10 tonnes of hazardous problem waste and this year is expected to be no different.
The trailer will be attending a number of locations across the region, allowing residents to dispose of problem waste items, including gas bottles, paint, motor oils, car batteries, household batteries, fluoro globes and tubes, smoke detectors and fire extinguishers – all items that cannot be placed in any domestic bins (red, yellow or green).
“This is a great opportunity to get rid of problem household waste that can’t be put out in kerbside bins, but it’s also a chance to chat to our knowledgeable staff,” said Paul De Szell, MidCoast Council’s Director of Liveable Communities.
“Bringing the trailer to localities across the region not only saves residents a trip to their nearest Waste Management Centre, users can drop in and chat with our waste team about how you can do your part in helping us re-imagine the way we manage waste across the region.”
Local residents are encouraged to check their garages, sheds, laundries and under sinks to collect up to 20kg or 20 litres worth of items that can be dropped off for free to the trailer.
The Mobile Recycling trailer will visit the following locations throughout 2020, however may leave a site earlier than advertised if it reaches capacity:
