Scatterday Challenge for October - "Broken" #4

So we popped the retro Crock Pot out on the footpath for collection - and in the morning it was gone!

But by the afternoon it was back! - minus its power cord. Chopped off, cleanly, it was. Well and truly broken.

I gather this is quite a common happening. Can anyone tell me just why it's become so popular for people to cut off the power cords of defunct household appliances?

  1. The copper, Di! It's worth good money if you have enough of it to sell to the metal recyclers. There's also a bit of copper stealing happening at accessible places.
    A Lake Macquarie library recently had their outside air conditioning units pulled apart and stripped of copper! Talk about brazen!


I love to hear from you, so please leave me a comment.
