What a Load of Rubbish ! Review with images

AdvantagesSave the Planet

DisadvantagesCan be a dirty job

"It doesn’t take a genius to work out that if we go on using the worlds resources the way we are then before long there will not be any left. It is very much of case of the three wise monkeys, see no evil, hear no evil, and speak no evil. The Three wise monkeys See No Evil How many of us just simply close our eyes to the fact that we are wasting the worlds resources at such a rate that soon we will have no choice to re-use and recycle ..."

everyones responsibility

Advantagesgood for the envrionment and the community spirit

Disadvantagesmay take a bit of time and though, but worth it

"Can any sensible person say that we shouldn't be recycling? i hope not. It is something that i have always felt very strongly about and rather naively i thought that everyone would want to do it. i mean; who really wants to see their planet disappear under a cloud of smog, dust and dirt? So why do few people do it? and why aren't people seriously worried about it? I don't know all the answers but i do see an attitude of "It's not my problem" ..." Read review

Rid of the Rubbish and Recycle the Rest

AdvantagesCleaner environment

DisadvantagesNone!

"Do I recycle – Yes Do I do it well – No However I am trying my best and with each piece of recyclable rubbish I am learning. Recycling seems to be all the rage, the in thing, one of many things you will be penalised for if you refuse to do it. As speculation mounts regarding technology to monitor the contents of our bins perhaps its time to tackle the government head on and prove that we do not need a big brother society to make us recycle. ..."

CHOOSE ME, ABUSE ME AND ALWAYS RE-USE ME

AdvantagesSee review

DisadvantagesSee review

"There can be no doubt in anyone’s mind that recycling should be a fundamental part of modern day life. The world’s resources are fundamentally finite, and if we don’t get smarter at making things last longer, or being able to continually re-use things, we are setting up future generations for disaster. The problem is – it’s not as simple as that. In terms of household goods the recycling issue is split in two ways: 1. We ..." Read review

Recylce, reuse, re-what?!

AdvantagesSee text.

DisadvantagesSee text.

"I would just like to write a review on recycling, something that I am sure almost every single person has heard something about and has got their own thoughts or views on it. Whereas I see that other people also have their own opinions (for which they are in fact freely entitled to), I would just like to offer my own in such a way that I hope you see where I come from. We are encouraged to recycle as much as we can from our households; work places, ..." Read review

Silly glasses and huge tiddlywinks

AdvantagesUses for your mountains of old CD's

DisadvantagesSome ideas are just daft

"Over the years AOL, and the other mass of ISP's have sent out enough CDs to satisfy the needs of each and every person in the world, not just once but several times over, enough free hours for our entire lifetimes. Add the total amount of "useful" software CD's from magazines, virus software updates, duff ones that for whatever reason fail in your CD recorder...and you probably have enough to tile the Great Wall of China, both sides, and all the pyramids, ..."

Support your local tip

AdvantagesHelp the environment and you find loads of bargains

DisadvantagesGets very busy on Bank Holidays

"If like me, you love rummaging round car boot sales and charity shops, then if you haven`t already, you should give your local council tip a visit. Not only will you be able to pick up some bargains, but you can dump your rubbish as well, therefore helping the environment in the process. Your local council rents out the tip to a waste disposal company. The employees then separate the resaleable stuff from the rubbish. You`ll often see the blokes ..." Read review

Rotten tomatoes and cabbage

Advantagessee opinion

Disadvantagessee opinion

"It was bin day today, and once again I forgot to put the bin out. Thankfully our front door and our bin lie on the path which the bin men walk down to collect the bins from the close behind our house, and they very kindly took it and emptied it. When I went out to collect it there was an orange bag, a sticker and a little card with the heading “Your recycling guide”. In our area, I don’t know about others, we are given an orange ..."

Do the earth a favour

AdvantagesSaving the planet's resources.

DisadvantagesIt may take a few minutes of your time

"Why do we hardly recycle anything in this country? Other countries manage to recycle a lot more than we do, so what is our problem? Can we as individuals make a difference? I think that we can, maybe not as much as we’d like, but if we all do our bit, at least we’re doing something. Here are a few of my ideas. We constantly use fresh resources when recycling would be just as good if not better. Consider the merits – why continue ..." Read review

Three R's

AdvantagesSave the world

DisadvantagesGet smelly doing it

"Now this is where I jump up on my hobby horse and RIDE, I recycle everything I can, it only takes a little bit of effort and organization and I’d like to think it makes a difference. Of course I may be wrong but I think it’s important to conserve our resources for the future to make the world a slightly less crappy place than it will be for our children (I told you it was a hobby horse, forgive me if I get preachy). Well I had set out ..." Read review

Rags to Riches - A Look at Textiles

AdvantagesReduces waste, help third world

DisadvantagesCheap, imported, poor quality fabrics

"Our local council has lately become somewhat obsessed with recycling, which is no bad thing. The government has issued them with targets to meet and grants as incentives. Disposing at landfill sites has become more and more expensive following the introduction of landfill tax - probably one of the more socially acceptable taxes they have imposed recently. Our garage is now full of green boxes with compartments for recycling paper, cans and textiles. ..." Read review

Bin the attitude

AdvantagesBe a better person

DisadvantagesNone

"Hiya, it's Ray here, not Kate (for once!). I felt compelled to write on behalf of all refuse collectors out there in this cruel world. I recently wound up my business as I have been offered an employed position with a new company starting in June. In the mean time I decided to do some HGV driving to keep my licence current. I registered with an agency who have kindly found me all the work I want, with various different companies week to week. This ..." Read review

Recycle your bicycle - re-use your glass

AdvantagesProtects our planet

DisadvantagesDestroys our planet

"The first glass containers were made over 3,500 years ago. A clay/sand model was fixed to a metal rod and was dipped several times into a bath of molten glass, in the same way that traditional candles are still made today. When the glass had cooled, the clay/sand model was carefully scraped out of the container, leaving the hollow glass vessel. These containers were worth more than their weight in gold and were used until they were broken. Glass ..." Read review

Just do It

Advantagesenvironment, economy

Disadvantageseffort

"I think in this day and age it is a crime for anyone not to make the effort to take all the waste they can to a recycling plant. It has been made very easy for us, we have three or four recycling centres in our small area alone, it depends what we are doing as to which one we use. If we are shopping we use the one at Sainsburys or Tescos, if we are if we are shopping at the local village we use the one stationed at the car park. I think what ..." Read review
