Old TV Repeats
At the weekend I took an old TV to the local "recycling centre" (rebranded from the pithier "tip").
A big sign declared "We have recycled 73% this month!". Very impressive, I thought as I watched staff methodically go through the contents of people's black plastic bin liners. Perhaps this is a shining example of true local cooperation and civic responsibility at work, safeguarding the environment and conserving precious resources for our children's children.
"What happens to this large container of old TV's that I've just contributed to", I enquired.
"Ah. They go off to be crushed", came the reply.
So did I.
