This is something my Dad would have applauded. Being from North Dakota and needing to shovel for sometimes 5 months of the year. My father always tried to make removing snow  or moving snow fun. I remember one winter he talked me into doing a Boy Scout project to shovel out every fire hydrant in the city and put markers on them to help the fire dept find the hydrants after a snowfall to save lives. We made it into a contest to see how fast the teams we created could dig out a section of the city. The dad's would drive and then the kids would jump out and shovel. It took us 2 months shoveling every Sat & Sunday to do every hydrant in the city. Lots of work but a good life lesson. Not sure what lesson this guy is teaching. Recycling perhaps or maybe that shoveling is crappy work. I wonder is he flushes it, it it could double as a Zamboni.
