Those cockatoos!

Cockatoos have always been attracted to the rubbish bins down at Lorne – but it seems that man has devised a way to outsmart them!      The local bins are now being fitted with “gravity locks”.    The idea is that the bins are kept locked at all times except when rubbish is actually being put in.    The bins remain locked even when out for the rubbish collection, as it seems that when the truck clamps on to the bin and tips it into the compactor, the bin will pop open automatically.
