Waste Management Experts, Kartaway, Add Junior Rear Lift Truck to Melbourne Fleet

Kartaway recently announced the addition of the Hino 300 series truck, capable of servicing most medium to high density dwellings, to its Melbourne fleet.

With a rise in medium to high density housing within inner Metropolitan Melbourne providers of waste management services have run into difficulties providing effective waste collection services.  Unable to access the bin rooms/areas due to restricted access and underground car parks many Waste Management Providers could only offer a reduced level of service. In order to guarantee a continuation of service quality to their Melbourne customers, Kartaway have introduced the newest member of its fleet, a new Hino 300 series truck, which has been affectionately dubbed “Junior”.

Mark Whelan, Director of National Operations at Kartaway said  “It was evident that we needed a solution to allow us to continue delivering the best and most efficient possible service to our Melbourne customers. Having noted the Australian Bureau of Statistics findings that in 2010-2011 medium to high density dwellings accounted for over 90% of new building approvals in Inner Melbourne alone, and over 30% of Greater Metropolitan Melbourne we knew we had to act.”

Junior has a greatly reduced turning circle and, due to its dimensions, is able to service most underground car  parks*.  As well as accessibility to bin rooms in tight areas, Junior also offers a number of benefits including a reduction in excessive street noise caused by curb-side tipping and improved curb appeal, as bins can be collected from underground car parks rather than curbs.

Kartaway has operated for over 120 years and is a leader in the Waste Management and Recycling Industry. The company services Commercial, Residential and Constructions sectors through its Open Top and Rear Lift bin divisions. Call 1300 132 132 to talk about Junior with an Account Manager.

* For underground car parks with a maximum entry height of 2.05 metres.

Tyre Stockpiling Fire Linked to Accused Murderer

Another fire caused by tyre stockpiling is linked to an accused murderer, Ron Medich.  The Sydney Morning Herald reported on November 18th that the fire almost gutted a tyre dump in Sydney’s west and the company Carbon Polymers, part owned by Ron Medich, faces expulsion from the site. In New South Wales alone there have been 256 blazes over the past five years linked to tyres.

The issue of fires caused by tyres has concerned industry associations and the recent removal of tyre storage from Queensland’s Department of Environment Environmentally Relevant Activities (ERAs) in the Environmental Protection Regulation has been further cause for concern.  The Environment Protection Authority is working with environment group Boomerang Alliance to reduce the number of toxic fires involving tyres.

Kartaway collect used tyres in Melbourne, Adelaide, Queensland and ensure that the tyres are then sent to bona fide recyclers. Unfortunately, a criminal element has crept into the market, offering cheap disposal of tyres.  The unsuspecting customer is told the tyres are being stored temporarily but the used tyres are being stored in facilities not purpose built to offset the risk of long lasting “oil fires” generated by waste tyres. Unfortunately, most of these rogue operators do not recycle or dispose of the tyres responsibly and stockpiling has re-emerged.  When disposing of tyres customers should be asking how and where the tyres are being disposed of.  Kartaway customers can rest assured their tyres will be safely recycled.   CEO of the Australian Council of Recycling, Grant Musgrove in his submission to the Department of Environment has stated “It is important that regulations are in place to ensure operators that charge customers to collect tyres for recycling do actually recycle or dispose of the tyres without negative impacts on the environment and to human health.” He advises that the environmental costs of these fires is high – waterways, soil and the air are all affected adversely, also posing a risk to human health.

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.
Kartaway Compactor Unit from rear  As the units only require a small amount of space they were able to be located in another area that had been underutilised.  The compactor units compact the waste down resulting in a more efficient waste management program with fewer pick-ups required than for wheelie bins.  The loading dock was now freed up for it’s original purpose, the building’s deliveries.

Kartaway are able to customise novel waste management solutions to suit organisations’ unique situations. Call 1300 362 362 to speak to an Account Manager about a customised waste management program to suit your waste needs.

Renovators can get rid of their old tiles, timber, sheet iron and old bathroom fittings.
