I’m sure many of you have lived outside this Territory and resided somewhere in Australia that has quarterly verge general and green waste collections. Why then do we not have this service in Canberra?
This issue has caused me and my partner endless frustration, living in a rental on a meagre student wage with no way of disposing the years of student build up. There are many reasons why people run into this problem, and I think that something can be done about it.
About 6 months ago I came up with a hair brained idea to set up a business catering for this need, as well as offering other services in high demand and low supply (garden maintenance anyone?)
Basically what do people think of this? Any suggestions for how to offer the service (price/advertising/quality/time/government support)? I have a web of plans but would like to hear from the community before influencing the thoughts out there.
As an environmental science student, my direction would be quality recycling, re-useing through compost, 2nd hand selling of unwanted materials etc.
