I wanted a dustpan with a long handle so I didn’t have to bend all the way down to the floor when I was sweeping. So I took an old wooden broom and cut off the handle. Then I got a plastic dustpan and removed its handle too. Next I screwed the broom handle on to the dustpan. Now I can use my dustpan standing up — and I didn’t have to spend a thing.
