Solution to Kippax dumping?

By johnboy 17 October 2011 24

kippax dumping

Stuart has sent this gem in with this note:

The charity bins at Kippax are treated as nothing more than a cheaper version of the tip by many people. So here’s the Government’s reaction to the problem. Good to see it’s proving so effective…

(it’s nice to see that someone’s thoughtfully made sure to include the remote too!)

What’s Your opinion?

I’m sure this has been brought up before, but I’ll do it again just for the fun of it!

I just got back from a weekend in Melbourne. Whilst there helped my sister move into a new place from her old goup house. After she’d moved and the remaining residents took stock of the place there was quite a bit of unwanted furniture, including mattresses which had been left by other past residents.

Lucky Melbournites have a council pickup a couple of times a year. Whilst I realise this must cost a bit – both in the provision of the service and in foregone tip fees – the benefit to the locals and to the charities working amongst them must be enourmous.

The temptation to make a midnight rubbish-run to a local charity bin tempered somewhat by the knowledge that there will likely be an opportunity to get rid of your junk in a few months. #jussayin’

I agree with you on the curbside pickups. Brissie does them twice a year, plus you get sent a few free vouchers for the tip a couple of times a year. Far less illegal dumping is the result. (Also, it is great for uni students and other assorted bogans to score a free couch.

Although, if you do decide to illegally dump I don’t see why you feel the need to leave it outside a charity bin and thereby force a charity to spend the money to remove your trash.

Even Queanbeyan Has Council Clean Up Days,And I Might Add, Green Waste Bins.

Yeah, we moved a couch that she’d picked up from out the front of someone’s house some years ago too. Since she is has now joined the mortgage-paying, shop-bought-furniture-owning set with the rest of us, that will soon be left out the front of her new place for the next generation of uni students to camp on. Long live recycling (and the couch)

Since its 2011, one can only assume Canberra is no longer supposedly aspiring to no land fill by 2010. Why cant we have a sensible hard garbage service, like the rest of Australia?? Guess we dont have councils to ensure pragmatic approach to dealing with reality of garbage?? Or possibly ACT Goverment & connected individuals have shares in skip bin business, amazing hike in prices, strangely akin to ACTEWAGL…..
