After being cleaned out a few months ago, Mr Hosking installed security cameras but the latest theft occurred just last week.

"Hopefully they'll come back and put the money in the box," Mr Hosking said.


Plastic bag ban can help jump start Australia's 'average' circular economy .

Australia currently lags behind European nations and countries like Japan, which have far more advanced environmentally-friendly circular economies.A circular economy is a model built on principles of reducing waste, with companies creating recyclable products that go from 'cradle to cradle' instead of a linear path that ends with a landfill.
