HELP KEEP THE ENVIRONMENT CLEANER AND SUPPORT OUR CHARITIES HEROES
Recycling is a big issue for everyone at present and the local councils only do half a job. I would like to pick up what they send to landfill. There is so much wasted that could be recycled and we could cut down massively on these landfills that are blighting people's lives.
I can't use my own car as it has just had about it's day but a 2nd hand small van would be ideal I would be picking up biscuit wrappers, yogurt cartons, pens/markers etc etc. These items are then recycled into new products and the money raised is then donated to my charities of choice. I would ideally like to be able to use this to give funds to the local RNLI, the new hospital and other local charities who are struggling to make ends meet as people's donations are falling to due economic problems.
I do not see why we have to waste more than we need to when so many people could benefit from this and the local council would even save money on shipping our waste to another island who are then left to burn it which is not healthy for anyone (living in Orkney sometimes has disadvantages).
A little small van like the one pictured below would be just ideal for the job. I wouldn't like to risk driving a transit round Orkney in winter I'm not that brave.
