MB INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, January 29, 2009 13 LIFESTYLE PET OF THE WEEK Moby more like a lapdog NAME: Moby AGE: 2 years BREED: Maltese-cross NATURE: Moby is a gentle easy-going boy. He loves to be picked up and cuddled, will sit quietly on your lap and is also very social with other dogs. Moby still has that playful streak about him. He has a non-shedding coat that needs clipping and he weighs 4.7kg. To find out more about Moby or more than 100 other dogs needing a good home call 9486 3133 or email Monika@DoggieRescue.com.au or visit www.DoggieRescue.com.au What you can do: Here's a safe way to get rid of your old mobile phone Cr Lesley Furneaux-Cook SHIREEN KHALIL MOBILE phones can harm the environment if not disposed of properly. Burwood Council, along with MobileMuster, is calling on all residents to take their old phones to the council and dispose of them in an environmentally- friendly way. Mayor Lesley Furneaux-Cook believes that the New Year is the perfect time for a cleanout. ''With Christmas behind us it's likely that many people will have received or upgraded their mobiles,'' she said. ''This could mean literally thousands of old mobiles are lying around.'' Residents with unwanted phones can find a drop-off point at Burwood Council's customer services department. ''It is important residents don't throw mobiles in the rubbish, where heavy metals like cadmium and lead can end up in landfill,'' Cr Furneaux-Cook said. Since MobileMuster started in 1999, 550 tonnes of mobile phone handsets, batteries and accessories have been collected for recycling, including 3.8 million handsets and batteries. For more information or to locate your nearest drop-off point visit www.mobilemuster.com.au or www.burwood.nsw.gov.au, or call 9911 9911.
