This Week in the Market – Edition 62
In today’s This week in the Market we discuss visitors to the Market, how to request maintenance and recycling of organic waste.
At the Market
You might notice a couple of changes to recycling in the Market to improve effectiveness.
All bulk clean organic waste must be delivered to the Recycling Transfer Centre. Small quantities of organic waste (1-2 boxes) can be disposed of in satellite recycling stations adjacent to the Fruit and Vegetable trading stands.
The satellite recycling stations adjacent to the fruit and vegetable stores will now accept cardboard, polystyrene and plastic only.
Changes to where organic waste can be recycled on site have been made to make a fairer and more streamlined recycling system.
Closer parking for day time staff
Staff working in the Market between 8:30am and 5:00pm who have a reserved passenger vehicle permit can now park on Street One. This is the street that runs behind the rear of the store tenancies. Just look for the signs. To be eligible to park in these bays, you must:
- Enter the Market after 8.30am and leave before 5:00pm
- Have a reserved passenger vehicle permit. All unreserved passenger parking is located in P1 at the front of the Administration building.
If you’re unsure where these bays are or if you’re eligible to use them, talk to a Market Relations Officer or visit the Customer Service Centre.
You can view full list of parking fees on the website.
