        You get a lego, and you get a lego and you get a lego!

      Hmm - wonder if I can convince work that this is a good local community volunteering opportunity?

    Association of Professional Declutterers and Organisers (APDO)

      None of its practitioners are able to prove they are members because they've decluttered their membership certificates.

    Ice Cream tub

    I didn't realise Lego curator was an actual job, I thought it was just like playing with Lego but not actually sticking the bricks together, it's amazing what you learn on el Reg. I hope they used upcycled ice cream tubs for the sorting as per regulation Lego play.
