Kartaway announces its new Hino 300 series truck, capable of servicing most medium to high density dwellings, is joining the Kartaway fleet.
The rise of medium to high density housing within inner Metropolitan Melbourne has created issues in the provision of waste management services, most notably waste collection services. Restricted access and underground car parks have contributed to a reduced level of service from many Waste Service Providers unable to access the bin rooms/areas. To guarantee a continuation in service quality to their customers, Kartaway is pleased to welcome the newest member of its fleet, a new Hino 300 series truck, affectionately dubbed “Junior”. Junior’s dimensions allow for a greatly reduced turning circle and the ability to service most underground car parks*. This offers a number of benefits including a reduction in excessive street noise caused by curbside tipping and improved curb appeal, as bins can be collected from underground car parks rather than from the curb.
“The Australian Bureau of Statistics shows 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,” said Mark Whelan, Director of National Operations at Kartaway. “It was evident that we needed a solution to allow us to continue delivering the best and most efficient possible service to our customers.”
Kartaway has operated for over 120 years 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 to an Account Manager about Junior.
*For underground car parks with a maximum entry height of 2.05 metres.
