    I’ve got about 8-10 old bikes, some quite old fashioned, which have been sitting in a shed for years. Anybody wants them? Hexham, Northumberland

      Hi Anonymous

      I might know someone that could make use of them.
      What sort of condition would you say most of the bikes are in?

      Besides being a machanic,I also fix bikes and give them to kids and adults that can’t afford bike 🚲 ever gets thrown away if it’s broke I can fix it, nothing ever goes to waste what ever can’t be used goes to the recycling plant and gets melted down and made into something new,I live in Pittsburg Ca USA.
      Would you be interested in shipping them and what would it cost ?
      Please let me know

    I am just inquiring. I am a recently retired GP and have a lot of medical books that I no longer need. I am willing to send these to an appropriate source but I don’t want to waste peoples time by sending items that would not be useful. Some of them are quite old, but in good order and many would still have relevant information. Perhaps if you cannot help you may be able to suggest someone who might do. THank you Brian Corbett

    I had some yarn like yours and and used it to make tassels. Long ones to make tassel angels . My yarn was soft. It made lovely tassels. Years ago we made trivets, pot holders and placemats by wrapping the yarn around pegs placed on a board. The yarn was wrapped around the pattern several times. Then we tied the yarn at the intersections. You could also us it to like pin point stitching on a plastic grid. Have fun with your find.

    Dear sir, I am the safety officer (Parachutes) for our gliding club and after 10 years each of our Club Parachutes becomes life expired for use as emergency parachutes. We currently have 2 in this situation and wondered if anyone makes anything out of them in either a recycling or upcycling manner.

    Please advise of suggestions as we are loathe to just chuck them away if they can be of some practical use.

    I luv recycling and making new thing’s or artwork out of unused things but how do we know what things can be taking as recyclable if we don’t know we could ask rite.let me get rite to the point a machanic and I help out alot of people that are less fortunate to be able to take there cars to a shop and afford to purchase new parts so that’s when auto dismantlers play a good part if the parts are complete.for example if my car needs a new steering column or a trunk or door lock it can get expensive because now we gotta get a locksmith to rekey the steering column or a qualified technician to put a new key cylinder & tumbler in the steering column which can be pricy $ what I’m trying to say in s nice way and not just for me or the people I help but also for the other mechanics’ and the people they help is ( if the keys are in the cars you shouldn’t remove them, by leaving them you’ve created one of the best pieces of art known to man kind and that’s the smile 😊 on the person’s face when the part they came to get was a complete set with the keys.
    I’m pretty sure you didn’t know alot of people don’t.
    Thank you for your time and recycling to help save our planet it’s people like you that make a difference between this world.
    Joe 😎
