Instructions

There are a lot of instructions in the recycling corner of our local supermarket car-park -

A great collection! :o) I wish it would be something similar to this over here, but we don't have Oxfam and can't, for example, also put in books, CDs and DVDs, and everywhere you can leave clothes, shoes and such it looks rather than a dustbin. Not really encouraging.
On the other hand, most communes have recycling bins for each household - called the "green dustbin" over here - for everything that can be recycled - paper, metal, plastic and so on, and often - like for us - you also have a basket for glass which gets emptied once a month. Very comfy, although I never minded bringing away whatever can be recycled or re-used.
Quite a lot of the island has collection for glass, paper and plastic, but our village stopped it saying it was not cost effective as only those who really wanted to recycle seemed to bother putting the boxes out, and there was 'little evidence that this form of recycling helps the environment'....

These small corners of car parks are dotted around instead - our nearest is within 150m of the house.

The clothing bank and the book/music bank are really useful - the stuff is sorted and sold for the relevant charity. And the main recycling depots have areas where you can put anything from books to furniture that you think someone else might want; you then just pick up anything that you want. I have had books and china plates, and D-d has a beautiful wall mirror and a TV stand for ours.
A plethora of instructions. Good choices for the prompt.
Thank you - I was surprised just how many instructions there were when I actually looked!
