Territory And Municipal Services have announced that Tiny’s Green Shed has won the bid to operate the re-usable facility at the Mitchell tip.
“Tiny’s Green Shed has been operating with great success at the Mugga Lane Reusables Facility since January 2010 so I am pleased to announce they will soon be open for sales at Mitchell,” Senior Manager, ACT NOWaste, Chris Ware said.
“Tiny’s Green Shed has been awarded the contract for the Mitchell Reusables Facility following a public tender process. Reusable facilities help Canberrans recycle more by allowing them to drop off unwanted items before taking the rest of their waste to landfill.
“Since commencing operations at Mugga Lane, Tiny’s Green Shed has accepted and sold tens of thousands of items for reuse including books, lounges, tables, chairs, bikes, clothing, furniture, building materials, gardening items and sporting equipment. In 2010/11 it recovered nearly 1300 tonnes of material that would otherwise have gone to landfill.”
Mr Ware said that the Mitchell reuse facility will be closed for sales for two weeks from Friday 14 October 2011 to Friday 28 October 2011 to allow for renovations and site improvements.
Personally, being fundamentally childish, I’ll miss being able to announce to friends that I’m off to the arse shop. But I’m sure I’ll get over it.
