  • Comment on Recycle for Bradford by sarah morrison
    i can not understand why people who are doing community service are not sorting through the household waste recycled what has been unnecessarily tipped! Also why are Bradford not starting a fining scheme we do alot of recycling but have freinds and family members who boast of having two bins and filing them and that they can not be bothered recyling!!! Everyone in society seems so preoccupied with their rights, yet nobody seems to have told them they also have responisiblities to their community!
  • Comment on Tetra Pak Explains Carton Recycling by Peter Chester

  • Comment on The computer recycling problem by Mike at Pacebutler Recycling
    In the US, there's a non-profit group called FreeGeek that operates like the Brant Freenet organization you mentioned here. They also provide computers to needy individuals and groups in exchange for community service. I have heard about a company in Belgium called Umicore that performs electronic recycling quite efficiently - with less than half of 1% remaining waste that couldn't be returned to the manufacturing cycle. Thanks for this article.
  • Comment on Circuit board recycling a reality by M. Gurian
    Very interesting as a brief note. Will be interested in the details. The key to sucessful recycling is not only to dis-asemble the pieces but to treat them into recoverable and valuable individual streams in a reasonably economic process. Getting metals distinguished into adequately pure streams of useful individual metals or alloys will be a difficult problem. Looking forward to find the detailed work, if there is ever sufficient disclosure to judge details of the process and end stream analysis. Also the restriction or makeup of the starting circuit products may make considerable difference in the ease and universality of the process.

  • So we are on way way out of The European Union

    The option to Vote has now driven us out of The Union.

    We now have to take the advantage and not carry on blaming ourselves or others.It was a shock the way it went BUT GET OVER IT.

    The European Union is an organisation that tries to represent Europe.
    It is now nervous that a country has dared to take control of themselves.

    It will not be easy to deal with them because they want us to fail.
    We will not fail and maybe others will split away.That is their biggest fear.

    Northern Ireland now needs to be used as a trade Area to negotiate with Europeans direct.Taking advantage of its doorstep location with Southern Ireland. The UK needs to lower corporation rates to be the same as Ireland.This will be an advantage for all business.

    We need to create a small coordinating and marketing organisation and use CBI and Group Trading organisations to promote Great Britain.The commonwealth needs to be a bigger part of our trade. Our main objective must be to trade globally.
    The social legislation and general laws need to be rewritten and but back into British Law. Maybe a 5 year project.There is going to be lots to sort. In the meantime we can still use Modified European Law and call it that.

    For Info

  • Unable to drive safely down Marsh Lane, Cheltenham., 28th September
    The parking issues in Marsh Lane has now get even worse than they used to be. Trying to drive up / down Marsh Lane is absolutely horrendous at the moment. The Council have done nothing about this even though they said they would potentially install bollards down the one side of Marsh Lane to prevent people parking on both sides of the road. This has always been a problem but since the parking restrictions were introduced in St. Pauls more and more people are leaving their vehicles in Marsh Lane. Please can the Council address this issue as a matter of urgency, this has been going on for years now and nothing has been done about it.

  • Blocked Drains on A4136, 27th September
    The drain shown in the photo is blocked and causes large puddles across the road when the rain can not drain away. This combined with the water from the other side of the road, which also can not drain away, creates a traffic hazard. Life is also made difficult for pedestrians who can be drenched by the splash. Four other drains are affected but not as badly.
