Re: Lockdown?

My one and only bus has stopped. No buses anywhere near this village now. I begin to feel isolated now.. If anything happens to the husband then I might as well be on the moon :shock: :mrgreen: Same with our buses, Lil. We're around 25 miles from the hospital, on awful roads. On the flip side, we c...

Re: Disposal of waste....

Talking of paths i've been relaying a few slabs that i've lifted from a neglected area. I've always collected my ashes from the fire , riddled to remove any nails and the like and dug some of it into the beds. I'd been bagging it up and had quite a bit , more than i'd really need for the garden so i...

Bit late to the party,but... we had this conversation yesterday.Council have said to WASH any tins etc. that go for recycling.Garden waste ( is there such a thing?) Has been suspended.

Re: Disposal of waste....

There was mention of the bins on the local news. It was saying that if collections are suspended people should bag up their rubbish and store it. There was no mention of trying to burn it which considering the news covered birmingham more than anywhere else is probably understandable. Our local coun...

Re: Lockdown?

I'm self employed and in maintenance and to be honest the work i do isn't really essential. Yesterday after the announcement i didn't go to work on that basis but it seems i'll be ok to work after the details were cleared up. I can't for the most part work at home but then i tend to work on my own s...

I'm highly dubious about the urine thing. When i'm working i use a bottle in the back of the van and latter sprinkle it on the compost heaps. I've seen vermin on the compost heaps and don't rats live down sewers where most of it ends up?

Re: Disposal of waste....

I'd rather not burn plastic if i can avoid it and would try to store it if possible for disposal when things return to "normalish" . I've worked on a number of old domestic places and it seems people had a problem in the past not with plastic but with glass. It doesn't burn or rot away and i've ofte...
