Haz­ardous waste stop

Central Leader - - News -

The HazMo­bile is com­ing to West­ern Springs next month.

The ser­vice pro­vides safe col­lec­tion of haz­ardous waste like oil, bat­ter­ies, aerosol cans and flu­o­res­cent tubes and bulbs.

HazMo­bile co­or­di­na­tor Sandi Mur­ray says it’s al­most like a waste driv­ethrough ser­vice.

“Peo­ple pop their boots and we cart their house­hold waste away.”

Last year more than 8000 peo­ple dis­posed of 200 tonnes of haz­ardous waste at HazMo­bile col­lec­tions.

All waste is dis­posed of safely so that haz­ardous ma­te­ri­als do not end up in land­fills.

The West­ern Springs col­lec­tion takes place on April 4 at the pub­lic carpark on Mo­tions Rd, near the zoo en­trance from 10am un­til 2pm.
