Driving the clean-up

Tuesday, 18 January, 2011

SITA Environmental Solutions’ (SITA) Canberra Service Centre is over 1000 kilometres from the flood-ravaged devastation in Queensland, but help isn’t too far away.

The SITA Canberra Service Centre has packed up three trucks and a SITA Truck Driver, as well as a host of bins, and is trucking them up to its sister office in Brisbane to help with the flood clean-up.

SITA Branch Manager Jason Stewart said: “We would not have been able to do this without the assistance of our transport neighbours Irwin & Hartshorn.

“They have agreed to transport the trucks and bins to Queensland at cost, as part of their contribution to the clean-up effort.

“It is a pleasure to live and work in a state where people give so effortlessly without hesitation. Irwin & Hartshorn have arranged their own trucks and drivers to take the SITA trucks and bins to Queensland to support our northern cousins in their time of need,” said Stewart.

The vehicle convoy left Canberra on Friday.

In Queensland itself, the SITA office in Nudgee is currently mobilising staff, vehicles and bins to assist in any way necessary with the clean-up ahead.

In addition to this, SITA has initiated a payroll donation scheme to assist in the Queensland Flood’s Emergency Appeal. SITA will match all donations made by employees to this appeal.
