I hope you can recycle chains and old cassetts cos all mine went in the yellow bin last week.

Rob, grass will not 'compost' when landfilled, it just slowly rots and gives of harmful gasses due to the anaerobic state it is in. And the only metal that can go in the recycling bin is cans and tins. I would assume you could put bike parts in the automotive parts category on the 'NO' list. A metal recycler would be the place to take them if you wanted them recycled properly. Or save them up and give them to event organisers looking for old parts for making trophies with ;)


Is it not all those harmfull gasses from Burwood that are powering QE2? not all bad is bad.

..................and some of their vehicles.

In fact, the way I have been performing tonight, if my car ran on the stuff I could put a hose from my bottom to the intake and cruise all evening - CNG FTW :D
