AKA 'It's recyclying Jim, but not as we know it.'

It is not enough to take one's recycling to the correct area, scale the stepladder and then teetering on the top, fling the magazines in. No. One must put the magazines/papers into bundles and tie them together with string. I might not have known that this morning, but I surely know it now ;0)

To be honest, I am quite happy to be given a recycling lesson from my new companions, Since I am living in Switzerland I want to so things the Swiss way, otherwise I may as well be in Scotland.Still, it was a bit of a blow to have to bring my magazines home for want of some string.

But know that I think about it, now I know what to do with all that blinking cotton yarn that is languishing in my stash...


  1. Careful about using the yarn you do not care for. Some places are picky enough that you are supposed to use the Official Recycling String (made from recycled) materials!

  2. Some places are so odd ... and by "some places" I mean Switzerland!

    I can't believe that you had to wrap the stupid things! Why? What difference does it make? Would they rather you just threw them out?
