This morning I set off to the local tip with some garden rubbish only to find myself at the head of the queue just as the tip closed and they put up this sign.
The reason is that they use a JCB to compact the huge skips into which the rubbish gets tipped in order to get as much in as they can.
Watching the JCB driver was a true privelage. It was as if the hydraulic arm was an extebsion of his own. He was able to move it very precicely and very fast whirling this way and that like some wierd demonic dance.
Worth the wait just to get to watch him.
