HomePage RecentChanges Thank You

This is my "Thank You Rubbish" page.

I think we need to start a "Thank You Rubbish" blog. The idea is that recycling is a good thing; Hard waste is great, if it is collected before the rubbish truck; Compressing the hard waste in a dump truck (as Nillumbik did this year) is terrible waste (pun probably intended).

So this is my first set of thank you's to those who have donated their great things to me.

TODO: Photos of each.


The things I could not fit in the car make me want to drive around with a trailer during hard waste.



Places, Legalities and more

Free cycle



I remember we used to go to the tip and get things. Excellent stuff. You used to have to pay a little for removal, and for adding, but you got some excellent recycling. Now of course we have insurance ! Well should I say, we have litigation. It's too dangerous to let some loose at a tip.

Country tips still exist and can be very useful.

Wasted opportunity

A tip, I won't mention where... makes money by collecting steel in a special place. It pays for itself with the steel it sells. So why is it that each time I go there I see 100s of steel items from drums to chairs to fridges, thrown into the deep holes ! Not to mention the bottles and cans by the thousands.

Electrical cords

We noticed a person going around the country side cutting off electrical cords from all equipment. People I talked to said that the equipment they put carefully on the side of the road, such as CD players, old TVs, amplifiers etc where all in working order and that they were often put in a safe, water proof place for people to take. But the cords are cut off, so this makes it hard for most people to deal with !
