Compost course



  • The problem is not simply ensuring that things are sent for recycling. It is ensuring that the facilities for doing the recycling exist - actually reusing the materials.

    You're right GG. Mostly they don't exist do they?

    Alan 4711 (isn't that a cologne?) so fragrant Alan, the course is run once a year as far as I know, it took me 15 months wait to get on it; book it NOW! (sorry to shoutimage) Contact Norfolk Council. I have to go into my emails to get you the exact email address, so look out for next postimage

    Alan, I'm back; email [email protected]

    The whole point of the course is that we not only learn more about composting ourselves (no, not quite composting ourselves, ) but that we go out and proselytise about it to stop more rubbish going into landfill and incinerators, via stands at fetes etc. plus talking to people; friends, neighbours, relatives to persuade them to compost. Hopefully we achieve this without being crossed off everyone's dinner party listimage

    NutC., Have you been watching the Sewing Bee competition on T.V.?

  • nutcutletnutcutlet PeterboroughPosts: 26,851

    artjak, no I haven't but you're not the first person to mention it. Is it good, should I be watching? That would mean I'd be watching 2 programmes a week. Not sure if I can deal with that much TV

    Getting back to the plastic bag debate, when I was growing up (over 20 years ago now....image) supermarkets in my town has cordened off areas with boxs for you to pack up your shopping. I never seen anything like this now. Maybe the occasional banana box at the end of a till, but nothing of the scale that it was. It strikes me that they now either recycle the cardboard themselves or bin it. 

    I would like to see a return to the days of cardboard box areas which my stop some of the overuse of dreadful plastic bags.
