They are emptied daily, the lads tip it over on a big sheet sort it and then dump it in their lorry, with the canal rubbish I shall chuck petrol over it and set fire to it….If I tried paying the kids to clear the rubbish they would just create more deliberately… :cool:

Bit of a political chat about the bin placement, It's on hold but no bother is was to-be expected, So the lads carry on fixing all dem cracks and building useful things when I can remember what they were, an electrician is trying to fix a water fan and the knife grinder is in the water garden happily sharpening every knife axe and blade, I probably have a collection of over 25 including kitchen gear..
lunch ? normal chicken/roz/potatas/molykeayah!/chai! it never varies….x 3 45le…… :cool:

If you constructed an overlap boot foundation you will suffer no slip. I'm sure your workers will be familiar with this method as they all know everything about anything. :lol:
