You won't belive this !!!

Post by Digger on Mon 15 Aug 2011, 10:36 pm

I went to the recycling yard on Sunday to have a mouch , as i stood by the electrical skip a bloke came in with two DVD players and one video player , he said as he was putting them in the skip that there was nothing wrong with them he had got sky now and could record on that , within a few seconds some bloke cut off the cables and placed them in a bag he was carrying which was full of the same thing . i did not want them but someone might have , a chap next to me said it was not allowed . They are collecting it for scrap .

My question is when are they going to stop this sort of thing going on , its not fair for people that are looking for something they could use . i hope they stop this now ..

Loads of places now have a sort of shop where the usable rubbish is resold, mainly run by charities. Ours is called the Trash Palace. The name says it all but you do get some interesting bargains.

They used to have a container that you could put working equipment in for reuse, they have stopped that now.

They have stopped people cutting off cables and now do this themselves.

The person you saw was probably a staff member.

There are signs up saying not to cut cables and to leave all non ferrous metals with a staff member.

It was not a member of staff Steve , as i know the bloke he is a chippy . They have got a load of cameras up which are recording everything that is going on .

What is more annoying is some wait there for hours grabbing everything that they can sell either on Facebook ebay or any similar sites .

I Thought the idea behind this facility is to assist people who can ill afford to buy either new or second hand , perhaps more policing this site by staff .

one of the bigger charity shops on the bridge that advises citizens goes down to the recycle yard picks up goods and takes them back to the shop to sell them at what are expensive prices for a charity shop...

I know someone who make a lots of money a week on it all .they makes a killing on it and is there every day.gave their job up and went on the dole ..
my daughter went down there and took some electric stuff a chap asked her for it but was scared of this "gang " who was collecting it all.
they had a scam going on down there .so they left what they had in the car and gave it to the chap after working hours .it was no good to then but was what he needed to fix something he had .
this is what is going on .someone is taking it to make up other stuff then selling it on ..
It is good it is being recycled but a shame someone is making a fortune out of it all ..
