Kartaway recently announced the addition of the Hino 300 series truck, capable of servicing most medium to high density dwellings, to its Melbourne fleet.
With a rise in medium to high density housing within inner Metropolitan Melbourne providers of waste management services have run into difficulties providing effective waste collection services. Unable to access the bin rooms/areas due to restricted access and underground car parks many Waste Management Providers could only offer a reduced level of service. In order to guarantee a continuation of service quality to their Melbourne customers, Kartaway have introduced the newest member of its fleet, a new Hino 300 series truck, which has been affectionately dubbed “Junior”.
Mark Whelan, Director of National Operations at Kartaway said “It was evident that we needed a solution to allow us to continue delivering the best and most efficient possible service to our Melbourne customers. Having noted the Australian Bureau of Statistics findings that in 2010-2011 medium to high density dwellings accounted for over 90% of new building approvals in Inner Melbourne alone, and over 30% of Greater Metropolitan Melbourne we knew we had to act.”
Junior has a greatly reduced turning circle and, due to its dimensions, is able to service most underground car parks*. As well as accessibility to bin rooms in tight areas, Junior also offers a number of benefits including a reduction in excessive street noise caused by curb-side tipping and improved curb appeal, as bins can be collected from underground car parks rather than curbs.
Kartaway has operated for over 120 years and is a leader in the Waste Management and Recycling Industry. The company services Commercial, Residential and Constructions sectors through its Open Top and Rear Lift bin divisions. Call 1300 132 132 to talk about Junior with an Account Manager.
* For underground car parks with a maximum entry height of 2.05 metres.
