Winner - Junior Fiction 2002 New Zealand Post Children's Book Awards. What is Colin doing scrambling about in the rubbish bin? Has he lost something?

And the rubbish bin seems a good place to start. But his family are NO help! A high-spirited story, playfully told, which includes great recycling tips and startling facts about ecology.
