Waste management will be doing a final collection of old wheelie bins that are not wanted or were missed on the last collection date.

They will not be doing a door to door pick up this time so if you have one to get rid of you can drop it off at GY motors before 2pm on friday 28th feb and they will be picked up from there. No bins will be accepted after this date.




Desperately searching for a paddock for two happy horses anywhere around Glenorchy or surrounding valleys. After suddenly losing our paddocks, we need to be out by the end of Feb we have heaps of waratahs and electric fencing also water tank on a trailer. So don't need a fancy fence.. 

Any ideas or suggestions more than welcome..
