Imagine Using a Pin Number To Remove Waste

The City of Sydney are seriously considering using PIN numbers for rubbish disposal for residents in a cluttered cul-de-sac in Royston Street, Darlinghurst. The situation has become so bad that a novel approach to rubbish removal and recycling was urgently needed. The City of Sydney came up with a unique idea – chutes leading down to an underground collection point. Five 1100 litre bins for general waste and recycling would be at the end of the chutes and a scissor lift would be used to bring the bins up to street level for collection. Residents would use PINs to access the chutes.

According to a report in the Sydney Morning Herald this is included in the City of Sydney Draft Waste Policy and came about because the street had become an eyesore. Lacking space in the front of the older style apartment buildings to store their wheelie bins the residents had taken to leaving them in the middle of the traffic island in the centre of the cul-de-sac. Then came recycling bins, adding to the clutter, then illegal dumpers began to leave their rubbish, along came the rats and cockroaches and the whole situation was out of control. The project is estimated to cost $85,000

Kartaway has solved similar problems for their corporate customers.  In Melbourne and Sydney Kartaway Account Managers have developed customised waste management programs to overcome challenging situations.  One example was at a multi-level corporate building in the heart of Melbourne. With wheelie bins cluttering the loading dock deliveries to the building were being compromised.  The solution Kartaway were able to offer was to install two of their CP50 compactor units, one for general waste and one for cardboard recycling.
