    This is an early April Fools right? You’re pulling our collective leg?

    They don’t really think that we can put cardboard in that?

    Recycle your crisp packets, Pringle tubes, chocolate wrappers, toothbrushes and more via Tranquility / Roots on the Newport road, next to the shoe shed and raise funds for charity.
    https://www.terracycle.com/en-GB/ab...utm_medium=menu&utm_source=www.terracycle.com
    Took these there today, 2 boxes of crisp packets (about 15kg +) Chocolate wrappers and Pringle tubes all helping to raise funds for charity with nothing going to land fill.

    I have just debagged an old dear.

    Well, her upstairs and downstairs Henry vacuum cleaners, actually, and put new bags in. (Suitable precautions were observed). So that she now has something to occupy her for a couple of months isolation.

    She is totally convinced that the 'refuge men' have instructed her that the old ones are to go in the blue bin, as she hasn't received her new recycling bag yet.



    (They are in her green bin.)

    I spent half the day ramming stuff into mine - ah, well, it's a compost bin now.
