Revolve given the arse for Aussie Junk

By johnboy - 24 March 2007 58

The ABC reports that after 18 years of helping Canberrans recycle stuff that goes to the tip Revolve have been turfed out in favour of a mob called Aussie Junk.

We had a look at the tender process last October. Back then opinion was divided as to the merits of both Aussie Junk and Revolve.

Personally I despise any company with the word “Aussie” in it’s title and that goes double for outfits with pig ugly websites and embedded midi files.

What’s Your opinion?

If you’re interested, the revolve website has a template letter so you can protest the closure, as well as their perspective on things:

If it’s all about reducing landfill they should be concentrating on large items, not small antiques.

I’m not sure I understand why there needs to be transparency in the disposal process, jb … are Revolve/Aussie Junk acting on behalf of the ACT guvmint?

If so, then your call for transparency is apt.

If not, then isn’t it just a buyer/seller transaction – how the goods came into the hands of the seller, is irrelevant, as long as the acquisition was legal. Is there a requirement under the arrangement that all scavenged goods are made available for sale at the tip premises?

As bonfire stated early, does it really matter who gets the choicier items as long as they don’t end up in the landfill?

I was referring to transparency in the disposal of the choicer items.
