As I have not blogged for a while I back tracked and re-read a number of reply blogs for which I must say thanks for your interest.
Although there are a lot of people I could reply to, it would take to long. For those waste carriers from Woking though interesting thoughts - do skip companies who also run transfer stations inflate the cost to keep their skip prices low? Well a difficult one to prove as the market is limited but unfair trading will always exist be it large companies or councils in competition.
Councils though have an added bonus they with government write the rules by which you have to abide whilst they........you can guess the rest.
Existing in today's climate is difficult but recycling your load and finding partners to use some of the recyclable goods is key to working the business correctly. If you have tried and your efforts have failed then a major restructure is needed. For myself I lack space to turnover vast amounts but I still manage to recycle 50% - 60% of all loads carried.
Thank you to our friend from the USA for commenting on bereavement and the useful suggestion of signing up to a company to clear loved ones effects once they have died. This really is about planning ahead for those that are left behind when every one of us has to move forward to another life or whatever exists beyond our last moments in this life.
Thanks to all genuine bloggers your comments are welcome. If you have recycling tips then pass them on.
Wood can be reused for construction / burning in wood burners / shredding
Paper can be reused for packaging / mulching / rereading / shredding / bedding for some animals
Soil can be graded down for reuse / green waste can be composted
Screws / nuts / bolts / nails reuse
IDEAS are what it takes and revolutionary ideas to recycle for example tyres cost effectively would change perspectives on waste containment.
Back to home and last comment for today - councils need to charge a reasonable amount on all goods that cost money to recycle - for example fridges. In my area they charge £25 to pick up these items but charge nothing when somebody takes it to the domestic tip! It still costs money to environmentally dispose of these items, does it not?
