I don't know where you live Theo but,
No recycling !!!! wow
My new job is selling equipment to plants such as sawmills, paper mills, pellet mills, Eco logs and panel mills (plywood and others ...) One thing the paper mills are happy about is the increased use of cardboard boxes. Companies like Amazon and many others are contributing to the increased demand, and it's all good because it can be recycled. Amazon is almost finished building a 1million + sq. ft. facility near Ottawa only about an hour from me, it is huge. Everything we use comes in a cardboard box(almost everything !)
In our great country, recycling is a priority and plastics are being eliminated where they are only one-time use. The problem is that too many people don't recycle where it is available. Where it is not available I can understand but even remote areas that I,ve been through have the blue bins by the road on collection day.
Don't fear your tools, pay attention and respect the tools and avoid injury.
