Money out of carbage


Recommended Posts

In the Netherlands there is a supplier who wants to have back the carbage from shoerepairers! When we sort it out: leather, rubber and (machine-)dust, we get money for every kilo! :lol:

It's not a lot of money but it's worth it. Now I split out the carbage in 3 bins: one for leather (uppers and (old)soles), one for rubber and one for the rest.

One's a month they pick it up and they weigh it, and I get my money directly.

They collect it and send it to a firm that re-use a part for isolation-material. (Offcourse they make more money, but they have to give more at once!)

The rest-materials is so less I don't have to pay as much as in the past to get it away! :lol:

 

Cheers, John

Hugh's olive oil fetish aside...

 

I've been buying shredded cabbage on my kebabs for years... lemon juice makes it fantastic.

 

ha... I buy shredded clothing waste for spinning, and its not a small business here in the UK... a large percentage goes to the car inustry to be made into sound proofing... but a good wadge goes to the clothing industry where its mixed with new materials to form yarn...

 

If a garment doesnt have a logo saying 100% new wool, then it means that it could contain the remnants of old garments, mill spoil (noil) and or combination of all...

 

just as a note... I pay nearly 50 quid a meter for reclaimed wool cloth! Under royal warrant too.... must pay the bill can they still lop off my head?
