Are you bored Bjay?
yes!. Are you bored geoff?
It's hard to give the ompression of carpets of the things but this bank shows them off well. You can see how bare everything else is at the moment.
There are all sorts of walks and gardens there including a fernery. There's not much to see yet but I like these little fronds hanging on to a mossy old tree stump.
Our Council are going to start charging for removing green waste -up to now it has been free-luckily the tip is only 5 minutes away so is not a problem for the locals with cars-or with compost bins-it is all part of money saving
The snag with this is that more people will just cram into the refuse bin-therefore reducing the amount that will be composted that gives the council a grant if they meet targets-so might be a shot in the foot??
PS To save anyone having to hunt back, OH and I went on the 'Snowdrop Walk' at Kingston Lacy NT place in Dorset today.
Lovely snowdrops, Flo
We already pay to have green waste removed, all the rest goes in plastic bags so can't put it in those. the big news here is that we are going to have wheelie bins for re-cycling.
G this is a boring topic
We already have wheely bins for recycling-this now means 3 wheely bins-still awake Bjay??
Flo -did you gambol hand in hand?
Not sleepy bored
just nothin to do bored
we have recycling bins for food waste, recycling bins for paper, recycling bins for plastic, recycling bins for tins, recycling for clothes & fabrics, recycling bins for bottles & glass, recycling for green waste, although they don't start collecting until May (hope they bring a lorry just for my house)..
lol, are you sure theres nothing to do Rosa..?
I think OH's gambolling days are behind him
This is the list of stuff that our council picks up from the kerb.
and they give us these boxes for all the non compostable stuff which goes in one of these:
I now realise we are literally talking rubbish-we need rebooting
Dorset has same as figrat but not the textiles, phones or cartridges. They do take domestic batteries. We have to pay for a green waste bin. I don't mind any of it if it gets used in a worthwhile way rather than just being dumped. Which it may or may not.
Ours collects green waste - if you pay, General waste - black plastic bag (one a week a household) and recycling - not foil, glass, cling film, shredded papeer as many plastic bags as you like but bottle banks etc or tip for everything else. There has been a big controversy about wheelie bins and they are now introducing them in April.but only for re-cycling They will then take glass Hooray I say
Every week the foxes rip open the black bags
Not so bored now. was fun finding pictures
I can't beleive we have actually pictures if waste bins!!!
Oh and they also give us one of these to collect kitchen scraps in:
Bjay-you will need a bin just for the glass
Figrat do you have room for getting in and out of your house/garden?
She'll need her own bottle bank!!
