I read a very sensible letter from my neighbour Frank Beasley ‘Pay public to avoid fly-tipping’ in the Opinion pages of the Herald (October 13), followed by the article Waste away in the Guardian (October 13).
That article centred on the up-cycling guru Max Murdo having made a career out of turning household junk into chic new items.
He defines up-cycling as ‘adding emotional or financial value to waste objects through the addition of design’.
Now I’m surethat there are many budding up-cyclers in our midst who would be very happy to attend our local recycle centres – that’s if it is permitted – or even explore the areas where fly-tipping has occurred in order to explore this opportunity to make money out of other people’s junk. Don’t leave it all to Max.Get stuck in and solve the problem s that are so well described by my neighbour frank.
