Was visiting my sister in law in Durham a while ago, and running a Transit she asked us to take some old radiators to the tip. Was stopped by the duty Stasi who, seeing the van, rejected it as commercial waste. I said "ok, I'll just fly tip it in the lay by down the road" to which the reply was "fine, but you're not dumping it here".
Just to clarify, I left it all in the van until we were home in Scotland, where the local tip operatives helped me unload it!
Version of the dit I heard was they were nicking wheelbarrows.There is a dit about some dockyard workers in Guzz who were pulling an awesome scam.
These lads worked in the fabrication shop and had access to tools and pretty much all the metal they wanted.
For years one of them would drive out the yard every night, towing a trailer.
Convinced that they were on the rob, Security would search them every night, but never found anything.
Of course they were stealing trailers. However the twist in this story is that these lads were knocking the trailers up themselves, during work hours, using work tools and materials.
I was talking to the bloke that lost that, he said as a punishment for
Did you ever see the bloke in Stonehouse car boot sale?Version of the dit I heard was they were nicking wheelbarrows.
Did he have the SA80 that was nicked by a bootneck circa '99?Did you ever see the bloke in Stonehouse car boot sale?
He was there every weekend with his stall of pusser’s cleaning gear, bin liners, mops, buckets, even the occasional Henry Hoover with a freshly installed 240v domestic plug.
Bloke got away with it for years and literally on the doorstep of the dockyard.
We sponsor these good people and they also seem to have decent cafes, staffed by people making an effort to change their lives without stabbing, robbing or hurting people. (jesus, I feel like a saint typing that!! p.s. I'm not)
My trailer has twin axles, I just remove two wheels and use it.Our local lot make it impossible for son who lives up north to come down and attack my - fairly extensive - shrubbery. To get into the garden waste bit (where they make a big song and dance about turning it all into compost which can then be bought quite cheaply), you’re supposed to apply for a permit for your vehicle.
But you have to show the V5 to prove the vehicle is registered at a local address. My Volvo doesn’t have a tow bar; his Disco does. He also has a substantial trailer which he built himself, BUT … it has twin axles. That makes him and it Evil, Bad and Not Allowed.
Last time, in the pouring rain, we ended up appealing to a local scrappy who really doesn’t do garden stuff – he agreed to help as son was in Hi-Viz and riggers and on condition we first went to Lidl’s next door and topped up their brew kit.
There was a previous occasion when, driving an Audi and with a smaller but heavily-laden trailer (and before they introduced the number-plate thing) the bloke wouldn’t let him in because he said it was ’a commercial amount of shrubbery’ and therefore son had to be a tradesman. Imago Junior thought to disprove this by waving his MOD90 at him – which elicited the response ‘That’s fake’.
I’m paying £2,000+ council tax for this nonsense.
I would never leave garden rubbish in my van overnight, simply because of the hamster-sized spiders that would be crawling all over the place the next morningChatting to a guy in NationaL Trust who gave the following warning. Dont leave garden rubbish in the van overnight. He related a tale about a guy who chopped down some spanish laurel and left it in the van over the weekend. Monday morning jumps in the van and keels over dead. Apparently the cuttings give off cyanide.
