I can't believe no one has guessed what this is for yet. It is plainly obvious for those of us who visit these machines.

OK, here is the deal. You ask the machine for say 30 dollars. Now the machine only despenses multiples of 20. So it gives you 40 dollars. Now knowing you only had 30 in the bank you don't want to over draw on your account, right? sooo You tear one of the twentys in half and deposit half in that there tube on the ground, and pull the orange handle. This creates a vacume and sucks half your 20 back into the bank keeping you from overdrawing. Really simple DUHH...

It's a pet "Slinky"...

The owner tied it there 'cause they don't allow pets inside...

What it is is.
Part y of building regulations 2009. Paragraph 1 of sub paragraph 5 of the Building Control of subsidual management of ground pressure states that, all new builds must be SECURELY ANCHORED to the side walk by a secondary measure consisting of nylon rope with a minimum diameter of 6mm. This measure must be securely bonded to the sidewalk with a minimum 10 inch tail terminated with an orange plastic collar for future reference.
Failure to comply will result in a fine along with demolition of the said building. All costs for this will be payable by the property owner, unpaid accounts will be charged interest at 500% above bank base rates.
Thats what it seems like sometimes, not that im bitter
