Re: Recycling!

There aren't enough recycling centres here Lady A, or else they are miles away. Local councils used to collect large items but many have stopped that or charge very high rates to collect. A lot of the serious fly-tipping is "commercial", some of it on a very large scale, but (for example) a plumber ...

I can't eat my way through three of four different lettuces quickly enough - my own aren't ready yet, but I do have...
