Flag on a dumpster

an experience of aussie icons

I knew I was back in Australia when I noticed a large dumpster decorated with the national flag.
 
Here it is, standing proudly out the back of a shopping centre on the Sunshine Coast town of Kawana Waters, Queensland.
 
Don't let anyone say rubbish collection can't be glamourously patriotic.

 
Thanks to
