YACCANNABUYBETTA, the buy back centre at Tamworth’s Forest Rd landfill, will reopen today for a four-hour sale.
The centre has been closed temporarily to allow nearby concrete stockpiles to be crushed without any risk to members of the public, but storage space for the amount of recovered goods which have accumulated is running out.
As a result the centre will open today from 9am until 1pm for bargain hunters.
Council’s waste services manager Jonathon Beckett said Yaccannabuybetta was “overstocked”.
“While the concrete crushing is yet to be completed, the level of recovered goods in stock means we just have to try and sell some to make room,” he said.
“We decided to suspend the concrete crushing to allow the public to access the buy back centre.”
Prior to the sale kicking off at 9am, there will be no access to the car parking area.
Items will only be sold for cash during the four-hour clearance.
Yaccannabuybetta Buy Back Centre has a variety of salvaged goods including building materials, furniture, bikes and household items.
At present council is calling for expressions of interest from individuals, businesses or organisations interested in managing the recovery of goods from the Forest Rd landfill with submissions closing at 10am on February 22.
Mr Beckett said council was keen to look at a variety options for the future operation of the buy back centre and the recovery of second-hand goods from the Forest Rd facility.
Anyone wanting more information about making an expression of interest should call Mr Beckett on contact 6767 5555.
