It's ridiculous that it's not taken away along with all the other recyclables. It's difficult to store even if it is broken down into flat pieces and it goes hopelessly soggy if you leave it out in the open. The only option is to shove it into the car and make a special journey to the dump - and at least I have a car. Shameful really.

Observer, unless I'm much mistaken ADT was merely correcting a typo.

Lewes District Council is starting to roll out a doorstep cardboard recycling scheme - I hope it covers the District sooner rather than later!

about time to, can we have a compost collection to..some of us don't even have a backyard to put our card in let alone a compost bin.Considering lewes is so alternative it really does lag behind in recycling, when we have been on holiday occasionally,even in really small places they have better collections than here, however remote.

Totally agree, Bastian.
Cardboard makes up an astonishing amount of rubbish imo. We stash ours in the garage and take it to the tip every few months. When we started doing that, the amount left out for the bin men was halved.
I'd like them to collect garden waste, too. Maybe we'd have fewer smelly bonfires in the spring and summer if they did that. Not everyone can take there's to the tip, and if you're old and feeble it's hard to manage even with a car.

Apologies for the awful howler in the penultimate line. In correcting my awful typing, I ballsed up my grammer.

Have you ever tried turning your waste cardboard into paper mache. I did and made a paper mache boat, I towed it with a paper mache car and had a great holiday. When I returned home the outfit was worse for wear so I made a paper mache skip and left it outside. The only trouble is it is now full of other peoples rubbish. You cant win can you.
