What a dump!

A doing-day today. Playgroup was cancelled so instead we went to the dump. What a delight.

Although I have to say, it is incredibly well organised and as dumps go I reckon it’s pretty much up there.

You drive in – it’s a one way road with all the skips lined up for the various things – plastics, electronics, scrap metal, general etc.

What it makes you realise is just how much we throw away. It’s unbelievable how much stuff there is and much everyone brings. We went to Boots earlier in the day to buy the big m some anti wrinkle cream. (Although she clearly doesn’t need it!!) and the packaging was twice the size it needed to be to make you think you’re getting more for your money. If brands reduced their packaging it’d go someway to shrink our waste. Our new year’s resolution is to make briquettes out of our waste paper to burn in the winter. The big d is starting the process tomorrow. I’ll post a picture!
