Why do recycling companies keep putting non-recyclable bags through my door? 😡

Because their main priority is ecconomic, not environmental.

I like to adapt/reuse what might I find (either in skips or at a local recycling depot) - called upcycling!
I found some rainbow coloured fabric and covered the arching branch of a rose bush. I incorporated a tropical parrot figurine that I also found (discarded!)

My local tip wont let you take anything away. It's criminal to see the waste that could be put to good use.

Well, when rules are stupid, I tend not to heed them too much!

I get a lot of stuff from skips. You are supposed to ask the owner if you can have it but it seems ridiculous, i.e. "excuse me but
would you mind me taking this bit of broken wood/metal?"
