For quite a while now I’ve been pondering the notion of how to raise funds for the environment. I spotted this collection ‘spinner’ in the middle of the street whilst I was away recently.
Have you ever used one of these? These contraptions make giving money fun! You drop the coin into the side slot and the coin spins down and around until it eventually ends up in the central hole and finally into the collection bucket below. Very cool!
Why cant we have more of these collection spinners raising money for the environment? The main point I want to make is…
A little bit from a lot equals a lot!
Wasteman calls it “small change 4 big changes”.
How about a competition to design the craziest contraption designed to collect small change in public places?
Something to think about…
A while back, I used to talk a little on KISS FM. Fill the listeners in a little on all things waste. Maybe we’ll do some more talk someday – who knows! It’s a lot of work saving the planet. KISS FM is a very cool radio station playing dance tracks 24/7. They are so cool that I have just noticed on their website they have a flashing banner link to the wateman site. Thanks guys!
Here is a link to the KISS FM WEBSITE and don’t forget…this weekend is KISS MY GRASS – be there…you just might see the wasteman!

What’s this all about? Seriously. You no longer want your old tv, stereo, speakers etc so you just put them out on the street. It just seems a little too easy for my liking.
I’d like to investigate this ‘shove out on the street phenomenon’ a little more closely. Perhaps a call to the council might be able to clarify a few points, in particular, where will this equipment end up?
Funny thing is, the photo above was taken at around 11am. The photo below was shot at around 6pm (7 hours later).
Maybe the wind came along and blew the TV and stereo away but somehow managed to leave the old printer and speakers behind! I think it’s called ‘selective wind’.
This site used to be a brotherhood store and drop off centre. It’s in StKilda (Melbourne). The brotherhood moved out about 4 months ago but guess what…
People continue to use it as a convenient place to dump their ‘crap’.
If (and it’s a big if) one day there were no places left to dump stuff, the world would simply implode. One of the most important things we have as an intelligent civilization is somewhere to dump stuff. Without somewhere to dump stuff – we’d be stuffed!
