Hard Rubbish

So a big advancement in Australia well in Melbourne at least is the Hard Rubbish collection from the street. Put your large rubbish, old furniture and outdated technology out on the footpath and its collected by the council. Better yet they give you a week or so's notice so the neighbours can pick over your leavings and recycle anything useful.

In a place where the Fire Brigade and Ambulance charge if you call them out - I am not sure the free redistribution of old telly's, pc's and dining suites replaces real public services; but it certainly provides fun with spot the best shelving unit or printer you can salvage for cartridges!
