But the 2 metre x 3 metre skip was choc-a-block full by the time we closed the gates on Sunday."
MINCA was particularly pleased by the gratitude expressed by people dropping off electronic waste, with many seeing it as a godsend to their storage problems.
“With this success, we will be looking to do a this at least once a year. If people know that there will be a clean-up, they will hang on to their no-longer-functioning IT bits and pieces, rather than sending them to landfill, were they take up huge amounts of room and contaminate the land” Peter said.
The skip will be taken to Buyequip in Townsville for reusing and recycling of much of it as possible.
MINCA thanks Roo and Kerrie from DTE Excavations for the use of their compound in Kelly Street.
