How I love hard rubbish collections ...

Twice a year the inhabitants of the Secret Island go back to their huts and throw out the things that are surplus to requirements, these items are then sacrificed to the evil Tiki god Landfill.

Now this opportunity is perfect for what I'm calling "Urban Beachcombing." Many a bamboo and rattan item, casually tossed aside is picked up, spruced up and given a new home and lease of life. Almost all of the stuff that makes the Sandbar comes from roadside recovery. Pictured above are a bamboo plant stand and wicker basket. Salvaged from outside two different huts on the way home from work but brought together in perfect harmony.
