Where there’s muck there’s class.

Fulton Hogan’s East Coast SQTE advisor Kylee Martin devised the Worksite Waste Challenge for her East Coast team– a challenge to staff to make something useful out of waste from the yard.

The winning entry was by the drainage team, using old pipes to create ‘Fountain‘. Fountain comes complete with a water pump, causing water to cascade from one pipe to the next. It’s been so admired the plan is to auction it for charity.

Other leading contenders included Kylee’s own entry ‘Dog‘, and ‘Bulldozer‘ by Signs Inspector Cheyenne Walsh. Appropriately enough, Bulldozer’s body is made from an old road sign.

And the contents of Kylee’s Dog? A ring-binder providing the ears; a pineapple can its head; a coffee container its body; the feet are wheels from an old chair; the eyes are the pull chords from an expired fire extinguisher; the nose the cover off a car battery anode; the tail an old aerial and the necklace is from a Christmas cracker.

With no need to exercise, feed, walk, wash or take it to the vet, Dog might catch on.
