Do you have a Boneyard?

Post by Guest on Sun Mar 25, 2018 9:58 am

When we first moved to ireland I was disappointed to notice the lack of "Reclaim yards" over here. A real necessity in Waylands world. So I became a bit of a Magpie. I am now the proud owner of a decent "Boneyard" with dead freezers, lawn mowers, rotavators, power washers, water pumps, etc etc. All good useful stuff. My OH does not think so and continually nags me to get rid as it looks untidy scratch . She clearly does not possess the scaving gene. Must get me hands on more timber for this years projects.

We too miss the reclaim yards but I have to agree with you OH. I can't stand looking at piles of old electrical items. When we brought our cottage there was loads of it. Have taken 2 large van loads to the local recycling centre. Nearly cleared it all but every time we clear a bit of undergrowth we uncover something. Usually a kettle. lol

Years ago, when recycling centers were still council owned, you could pilfer to your heart's content if you had a friendly chat with whoever was runnthe place and asked permission. Those were good times !
Now that all recycling centers are privately run, they bar you for looking too long into a skip...
We made a fire basket out of an old washing machine that we found in the bog. I'd like to think we didn't scavenge someone's boneyard ;-)
No boneyard in our backyard ; we live in an estate and our neighbours would get a budgie ...
