Enjoy your Haz Mobile service

Yesterday I took the 3 old car batteries that have been laying around the place for years to the Haz Mobile service. And what a bloody great service it is. There was cars queued out onto the street. When my turn came, I moved forward and a guy in orange overalls told me to head down lane 2. When I moved off he cheerily told me to "enjoy your haz mobile service". I thought it was a bloody odd thing to say, although in these days of enhanced customer service for everything, perhaps it was just right. So I moved forward down lane 2 and 3 other geeks in orange overalls ran up to the car, opened the boot (trunk) and yoinked the 3 batteries. I didn't even have to get out or anything. They cheerily told me "thanks and have a great Saturday" while they ran off with my batteries.

Next I headed over to Kauri Point to wander the tracks to see if there was anything worth photographing. There wasn't. But at least I got some exercise.

  • I wonder what they do with them too. And the old paint tins and everything else too. But I guess while they provide the service, we're not putting the dangerous stuff in our wheelie bins or the like.

  • They must be making money out of them or else why would they be so willing to take them off you

  • You can get $15 per car battery at metal man??? Or something like that, my husband is a mechanic and takes his there. The paint gets refined and all the good bits get sold and reused. Everything has value in some way
