The ABC has the intriguing news that we’re begging our neighbours who weren’t so stupid as to outsource core functions so as to screw staff wages to pick up our garbage:

Chief Minister Katy Gallagher says the government is looking at a range of options to deal with the unemptied bins.

“We have been in touch for example with some regional neighbours around whether or not there’s capacity for them to assist,” Ms Gallagher said.

Can’t we wait a few months and then just move the ACT five miles to the west? It worked for Springfield.

Yeah, throughout this whole saga all I can think of is “the garbage man can”…. 🙂

Yes, it’s Spring. Even the garbage bags are yellow.

Who use to do the garbage pickup before self government? And why was this changed?
