I'd be more worried a pedo was around, the blowholes are a fair distance from the shacks

The child's sleeping bag also missing; along with some other items missing that the police is not releasing/talking about at this time...

(Like the elderly couple who vanished from the remote campsite in Vic a couple of years ago...)..
Their sleeping bags, (body bags), also gone...  Campsite burnt down....

I hope the little girl is found, (alive)...   I am sure the cops are looking at any known kiddy fiddlers from the local area; and unfortunately the parents too...

On foot, the experts have somehow worked out that she could have only walked 5.2km on her own ...   so the search is concerning on that; and a 1000km roadblock...

The parents, well known and respected locals, shared the tent with her...  But that said - there's an actual real case from the States (in the 1980s I think); where a pedo dragged a sleeping child from her tent at a popular campground in the middle of the night, never to be seen again ....  Stuff of nightmares.....   (That case, sleeping bag gone too)...

Last known alleged sighting of her (by the parents) was at 1.30am on the morning of her disappearance)...

As there were "no dingos present" - what's the motive and opportunity?

Hi,
    We cooperate with neighbours with our three wheely bins.
 e.g. elderly widow next door puts out her weekly wheely bin rubbish even if it is only 1 bread bag's worth.
Other will take her bag and add it to theirs and return her bin to her yard before collection. If others have excess rubbish, they will add it to hers and return her bin after collection.
We all do the same with each other's  recycling and green waste bins.
Win - win, and saves the council an almost empty lift most weeks.
Cheers

I guess they forgot to tell regional councils.

We are in the City of Greater Bendigo (CoGB)

They have indicated we are to separate out our glass and take it ourselves, at our own expense, to specified council facilities for disposal rather than having a purple bin and a council collection as the purple bin was deemed to expensive.

As we are about 5km for town, we don't even get a green waste bin (only for townies), but we do get a red and a yellow collection.

What's that, they've told you to dump your glass with the normal rubbish, rather than recycling it ??? >:D

I did see something a little while back that the Japanese have to take their their rubbish & recycling to neighbourhood collection points, then sort it all into something like 12 bins ???

Up/out here in the South Burnett, we are really sophisticated with our waste disposal. We have got 1 bin. Everything goes into it ;D

I’ll need to check to see how he is coping, not just with the waste disposal, but also with integrating into the JOH community >:D

No, glass must be separated from rubbish and other recycling and taken to the community "transfer stations" of which I think they said there are 11 in the whole of the CoGB.
We have collection of garbage and general recycling wheelie bins.

I worked at a lime plant here in Vic and they were pedantic about separating recycle and general waste to the point of a writen warning for failure to do so. I saw a truck come in one day and empty both bins in the same truck.

The Clarence Valley has Two Waste Transfer Stations(operated by MI Organics), Townsend & Iluka, and a regional centre at South Grafton where waste from the other two ends up any.
A couple years ago, I did a site clean up in Maclean, Building waste(broken terracotta pipe, brick, concrete slag, pvc pipe,  timber & the like), 7x10 caged trailer full.
Took it to the Townsend Transfer station, was informed that they no longer accept builders waste, I needed to take it to South Grafton, 60 odd km away.
I was directed to the landfill pit, where I hand unloaded it, while there, the semi-trailer from MI Organics Maclean was dumping general waste in the same pit. There was also 3 Garbage trucks dumping the house hold red bin waste in the same hole.
Why Concrete/terracotta waste is dump in the same hole has me stumped. Pvc can be recycled, timer can be mulched/woodchipped.
I contacted council, I was informed it was a directive from the EPA, they(council) were following what they have been told to do.
I don't know, sounds like 'Yes Minister' to me.

No one touched him, or will, that would jeopardize the ensuing proceedings.
