  1. Amazon packaging-overkill?

    Seeing as I work for the Waste Dept up here I should be able to answer that and bore you all at the same time! :) General rubbish gets baled and shipped in containers up to Shetland and incinerated which in turn helps provide heat for the swimming pool and some houses I believe. Cardboard and paper gets baled, separately, and sent south for recycling. Plastic bottles baled and sent south. Cans are separated into aluminium and steel and baled. Aluminium ones are sent south and the steels ones are sold to the local scrappy, who then sends them south. Glass is crushed and used as substrate for making the concrete blocks used to help buildup and repair the Churchill Barriers as shown below. We have one landfill site used for inert materials ie builders waste etc.
  2. Amazon packaging-overkill?

    Thought I had read it somewhere. I know it's the Daily Mail but..... http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3367719/Amazon-customers-frustration-ridiculous-waste-tiniest-items-delivered-huge-packages.html
  3. Amazon packaging-overkill?

    Totally agree mate. Front wipers arrived the day before, wrapped in a heatshrunk plastic bag.
  4. Amazon packaging-overkill?

    We don't :-) Well, not for domestic customers.
  5. Amazon packaging-overkill?

    Just ordered new wipers front and back off Amazon. Front ones arrived yesterday. Only packed in a shrink-wrapped plastic bag. Arrived in perfect condition. Rear wiper arrived today in this....... Box was 22 inches by 14!!!!!
  6. TV'S looking at reviews ??

    Same in this house! Eastenders and Coronation Street on terrestrial TV during the week and Breaking Bad on Netflix at the weekend :)
  7. TV'S looking at reviews ??

    Samsung are, AKAIK, the only manufacturer to offer all the major catchup services ie BBC iPlayer ITVPlayer etc etc and it was a deciding factor in the choice of new TV in our house.
  8. Heard this version last week for the first time and it blew me away! It's not very often a tune gives me goosebumps but this one certainly did. Absolutely love it! If you haven't heard it before, one bit of advice.......play it LOUD!!!
  9. How does this work

    Thanks for that Clive, cleared it up for me.
  10. Our Very Own Yplac Thread..

    Why is the headline titled "Un-fare...." shouldn't it be "Un-fair...." or am I missing something obvious?
  11. How does this work

    Bumping this to the top in the hope that the resident sheriff sees it and tells us/me the rules about unlicensed cars on trailers ;)
  12. How does this work

    Do you know anyone with a trailer? Pretty sure if it's on a trailer ie off the road, it would be OK. If I'm wrong I'll be reporting a couple of cars up here! :)
  13. Spot The Poor German Car!

    Ooops!!! http://www.standard.co.uk/news/london/car-sinks-in-river-thames-after-being-swept-in-by-tide-a3199741.html And who said that Beemers don't have indicators?
  14. Bluetooth house speakers for HiFi.

    I get it now I take it extending the speaker cables is not an option? I bought a BT speaker from Tescos a while back, £20 I think. Not very powerful but plenty for the bathroom. Pretty good sound as well. I just use it to stream Planet Rock etc when I'm in the shower. Pretty sure you'll find something suitable for your dad ;-)
  15. Fun little one!

    I was going to say that if either vehicle was a BMW then they, obviously, would have right of way. But then I noticed that vehicle B uses it's indicators so it can't be a BMW so therefore the correct answer is A
