[edit]

IT looks like a Dalek, one of those fierce robots from the children's TV series, Dr Who, but it is really a garbage tin. Ku-ring-gai Council has issued 700 of the monsters, which have six and a half times the capacity of a normal bin, to test a new system of once-weekly lolly mechanised garbage collections. Bricks, tree stumps, old engines, in fact anything which will fit in, will be whisked into special one-man operated compactor trucks equipped with remote control grips that lift and empty the rubbish.

DESPITE their size, the bins roll easily, perhaps too easily, on two wheels. Column 8 foresees two possible catches — spontaneous combustion of food scraps, lawn clippings and solvents, and runaway, Dalek bins plunging down steep driveways.
