  1. Why is recycling such a confusing issue ? For the full story: http://cag.tw/26n7 I am horrified at the reports regarding plastic specifically and the damage it is doing to wild life and the environment. Why can we not be given clear guidelines rather than being threatened with not having our bins emptied or fines. Whilst common sense should make one see that you dont put contaminated paper/plastic in for recycling, it is still very confusing as to what we can and cant put in our recycling bins.

  3. Hi all, I am hoping someone can advise me of the likely outcome of this situation that I find myself in. My car was recently hit by our local recycling firm causing some damage to the bodywork - car itself is ok. No note was left by the driver, although he apparently got out and had a look at the damage before driving off! A note was left by an independent witness however. I have contacted the company in question and they have moved quite quickly so far. Called them on Monday, they came and viewed car on Wednesday and then called me on Friday to say their insurers would be
  4. I was just pottering around the internet, as you do... when I came across some interesting articles on how to reuse plastic bottles (and other plastic containers). I already do reuse these for watering ports for plants in the garden, but I was astonished at just how versatile this throwaway product can be with a little ingenuity and a couple of hours... and of course a stack of empty plastic bottles. pininterest, has some quite amazing ideas. One chap has built a canoe, another a green house, they can be reused for storing small bits and pieces such as screws/nails in the wo

We have created industries producing wheelie bins, recycling boxes/bags, recycling lorries, new council services etc. It would be interesting if someone prod
  6. Thanks in advance for any help or advice. Here is draft complaint I have typed up for being fined yesterday for littering inside my local recycling point. On Sunday 12th October I attempted to use the recycling centre at ****. I was looking to recycle some glass bottles and a small bag of clothes. I noticed 2 men sitting in a private car as I approached the centre. I successfully recycled my glass bottles and attempted to open the hatch to the clothes recycling container in order to put my old clothes in. The container was full and I could barely open the h
  7. We just recently demolished an old shed. Took the opportunity to sort out all the rubbish that was inside. Tins - half full of paint containers of solidified filler the gravelly stuff off the roof of the shed lots of weed killers / chemicals loads of sheets of polystyrene that had been used to insulate the shed. It is my understanding that this stuff does not go into either the general household rubbish or recycling bins - to contact the council and they will arrange a pick up. Telephoned last Tuesday and asked them to do this. They said because of the quantities I
  8. Hi, I have read through a number of existing threads on your site outlining similar experiences to mine ( cannot include the links here as I have no previous posts). Unfortunately I did not see them before I sent my phone to cash4phones. Regardless, I have taken your advice and have written a LBA which I attach here. Your assistance in this matter would be very helpful (NB I'm in Scotland where I understand the court proceedings are slightly different).
