Media Release - Fast-tracked exit for residents with vegetation loads
In collaboration with the NSW EPA, Kimbriki has implemented a solution to reduce waiting times for all customers during peak times, predominantly weekends. By changing the way traffic is managed on-site, a fast-tracked exit has been introduced for residents dropping off council-sponsored vegetation loads.
Kimbriki’s CEO, Ben Connell said, “this solution sees Kimbriki adopt new operational procedures whilst still meeting NSW EPA regulations and providing a safe environment for all people on-site. We are installing new signage to direct residents through the revised traffic flow, and we have allocated additional resources to manage these new operational processes as required.”
Following the introduction of the weighbridges in July 2016 and the requirement to weigh every vehicle entering and exiting a waste facility, some local residents and visitors experienced slightly longer than usual transaction times when visiting Kimbriki. Mr Connell said “we apologise to anyone who experienced a delay during this time. We are committed to providing an efficient experience for the local residents and we thank our customers and visitors to the site for their patience and co-operation while we addressed past issues and implemented these solutions.”
Local residents of the Northern Beaches and Mosman Councils are entitled to bring in up to 60kgs of vegetation for recycling in a car or station-wagon; and up to 300kgs in a ute or trailer in a single transaction.
