Once a year, our council would hold a hard waste collection. I’ve just found out this is to be no more. While I understand that for around a week the footpaths look unsightly, there was also lots of good things that came out of this ‘trash and treasure’. For us, it was always good entertainment as we watched what people would cart away, once we put out a set of 4 chairs and they only took 3, that had us shaking our heads for awhile. We usually came away with something new from timber cut offs, terracota pots and home wares. I’ll miss you hard waste week!
