If the bins work, how would we go about getting the ACT government to install 
them around our city and suburbs? We have so much bush in Canberra, but perhaps 
there aren’t enough large tree hollows, as they are rarely seen here. There is 
also a plethora of brush-tailed possums to be had around Canberra, so a lot of 
people might actually welcome them if they hunt possums. Regarding the polypipe 
(PVC?) with Swift parrots, wouldn’t they build up a lot of static electricity 
with feathers constantly rubbing up and down their length?
