    Someones dumped a fridge at the end of our street yesterday and the council still have`nt picked it up.There were`nt any drawers with it yesterday but law and behold there is today at the side of thr fridge.

    I suppose it beats the single shoes you see laying at the side of the road.

    Because you have to pay to dump your fridge legally but, if you just dump it on the street its the Council's responsibility to come and pick it up

    You just phone the council up here(Not from where you are though ). They collect it for free.

    I read that in the UK they charge for the disposal of the gas or they are supposed to. Perhaps some councils have found that bearing that cost was cheaper than the cost of the dumped refridgerators because of the charges so decided to do the collections.

    itís an election with no Democrats, in one of the whitest states in the union, where rich candidates pay $35 for your votes. Or, as Republicans call it, their vision for the future.

    They collect virtually anything for free in this area(Scotland). Unless it is business waste. I dont think they have got round to degassing all the fridges and freezers yet, they are starting to pile up. They have also started recycling. We have four 'bins' at the moment. I thought it was a good idea at first till I saw the Penn and Teller video on the subject. Now I think it is just another 'In thing' to do.

    Don't have to pay to have them removed here. There has been one in front of our house since we moved in. Hurricane Charley knocked it over onto my Girlfriends brothers car, and it has layed on its side since. I finally got Dawn to call the waste management, and we are having it picked up tomorrow morning. we do pay for taxes for trash pickup every year though...

    I live near a car graveyard.
    People just dump their motors, and scavenge bits off other ones.


    It's a bit scary down there.
    They can tak' oour lives, but they cannae tak' oour troousers!
