Garbage Can Tamp 05 20 2010

Garbage Can Tamp 05 20 2010

This tamp allows me to punch down garbage in the bag without getting my hands dirty. This allows for more compact garbage. This means less space in the landfill is used and that I have to change the garbage bag less often. It also means I do not have to get my hands dirty doing this job. This is a must have.

I made this tamp from a defunct plastic broom handle. I cut a piece the appropriate length on the end that had the handle, using a hack saw. Then I drilled a hole through the handle, with a 3/16” or ¼” drill bit for a string so that I could hang it on a screw.

God bless those who think.

About Me

My photo
Welcome to my Blogs. My name is Thomas Murphy and I love the forest and wildlife areas of Wisconsin and would like to share my thoughts and the pictures I have taken of the natural areas of Wisconsin. Come share in my collection of what I feel to some of the finest scenes and images of the forests, lakes, rivers and marshes that Wisconsin has to offer. I like to go to pristine and secluded areas where nature resides quietly and I feel the resulting “lost” images are profoundly unique. I am usually “in the moment” when I take these pictures. When I say in the moment I mean a sense of excitement often precedes what my eye captures through the camera. I never stage these shots but seem to be in the right place and time when I shoot them. And when I transfer them from my camera and view them on my computer screen I realize a sense of surrealism that resonates with me yet again to the time they were taken and exemplify the beauty of nature. Please peruse my sites and experience the beauty of being there as I did.
