Mo substitute for Waffly bin

BRIAN OLIVERSound Telegraph

People passing Milk Mo’s ice-cream shop had to look twice last week when they saw a cow out the front of the Rockingham Beach Road premises.

But the cow, named Mo, will not be moo-ving anytime soon as he is the shop’s new bin after the previous one, Waffly, was stolen.

Shop owner Angela Baldrick said while no bin would ever replace Waffly, she was glad customers had a personalised trash can they could identify with her store.

“My customers need a bin. They were wandering around after their ice-cream and wondering where to put their rubbish (after Waffly was stolen),” she said.

Ms Baldrick said Waffly, stolen in February, had been an icon along the Rockingham foreshore for more than a decade.

“Waffly used to tell people we were open,” she said. “The kids love it as well.”

Ms Baldrick has not given up hope of finding Waffly and said she would double the reward of 10 litres of icecream for the return of him.

“Mo wouldn’t mind if he came back, he’ll stand on the other side so we’ll have two bins,” she said.

“Waffly just needs to come home, just bring him back.”
