Five-A-Dale’s resident refuse collector, Spud never throws anything away! ‘Being a binman is what I do best!’ says Spud.

Canny Spud is a recycling genius. He sees that nothing is wasted and is even crazy about composting, pheeew! Spud’s house is completely constructed from recycled materials, with jam-jar windows and a shopping trolley sofa! His weekly delivery of old bottles and boxes to the school is most welcome – junk modelling is the kids’ favourite activity!
