SHFoE’s day out…

The SHFoE trip to the dump resulted in a video and these photos of things in skips that should be somewhere else –  a recycling table perhaps? It is of course difficult to see the quality when you’re leaning over a skip and are being watched suspiciously, but some of these tiles looked as if they might have been OK.  So did the terracotta planters and the mugs and the glasses. Some things were just in the wrong place – like the plastic in the cardboard skip, and the  electrical thing  and the carpet  in the plastic skip.

  1. You have gained clear evidence that the Totnes recycling centre is failing in it’s duty to re-use and recycle. If this is just one small snapshot of what happens, it’s hard to imagine the amount of things which are lost to landfill over the course of a year. When we used to have a re-use table under the previous regime, I found lots of items to buy which are still in use. It seems the company running this site personifies the throwaway society – perhaps it’s their attitude we should throwaway.
