Grafton's Groovy Garbage Trucks

For a few weeks now the Clarence Valley has had to adjust to a new garbage service (I won't bore you with the details) but the new trucks are very cool with TV characters, Dirtgirl and Scrapboy encouraging us all to recycle more and put our kitchen waste in the green bin.
Dirtgirl is the creation of renowned Clarence Valley locals, Cate McQuillen and Hewey Eustace and has become an international hit.


  1. We are undergoing changes to collection here too. Cool looking truck!

  2. Ha ha. You never know what is going to show up on this blog.

  3. maybe if Toronto's new garbage collectors had such cute trucks there wouldn't be so many complaints - they would be hurrying through their route in not time!

  4. Looks like great advertising! Hope the recycling works. I does at MY house. ;)

  5. It looks great and I'm sure will make the message seen in a much better way... I love your blog, thank you...

  6. Nice approach! It’s great that with simple ideas like this, you already promote proper waste management and disposal and likewise encourage a lot of people to improve their recycling habits. The truck’s art would definitely draw a lot of attention to their message, especially the children given the frivolous illustration style.
