The free drive-through service is used by thou- sands of residents across the region to dispose responsibly of their haz- ardous waste, including household and garden chemicals, batteries and gas cylinders. Council solid waste business unit manager Jon Roscoe says the HazMobile provides an easy and convenient sol- ution for people who want to ensure their haz- ardous household material is disposed of appropriately and recycled if possible. All people need to do is box up their hazardous household waste, load it into their vehicle or trailer and drive to one of the allocated HazMobile sites on its collection date. There the experienced and trained HazMobile crew will unload people's waste while they wait.'' More than 8000 people used the HazMobile ser- vice last year and around 245,000kg of hazardous household waste was dealt with appropriately. Mr Roscoe says people should advise the HazMobile team if they have any particularly hazardous, old or leaking waste. The HazMobile will be on site in the public carpark on Elliot St, Papakura, near the RSA and Ray Small Park, between 10am and 2pm on Saturday.
