Fly tipping


Fly tipping
Furniture fly tipping in Hall Lane, somebody must have come home with a giant Christmas tree and had to get rid of some stuff to make room for it.

The scumbag who left that furniture could have rung a charity to donate it. The lazy toad could have chopped it up and put it in the bin bit by bit or made a fire with it! Whatever, he obviously has no brain!

Somebody phone Drew Pritchard, he'll pay a fortune for that old cabinet! And if there's an old chair with the stuffing coming out of it.....

WHY can't people take things to the tip??! Or a Charity Shop specialising in furniture would even have collected it. Someone would have cherished it AND it would have made money for charity. My own corner cupboard is falling to bits and I could scream when I see such laziness and such waste!

What on earth is it?

Yah jj your right Drew Pritchard would have made quite a bit of money out of that doing it up. Its lazy with some people today,especially when some people have nothing today. somebody would have been grateful of that, the needy.

Irene I have some rope if you’ll tie it on my back I’ll deliver for free just a cup of tea.

HE Veronica ?

Irene it might still be there, so you can replace yours thats falling to bits.

The fly tipper is obviously a no brainer, the product of the throw away society we live in, same as the lazy people who litter with cans, plastic bottles etc.
One of my NY resolutions was to try & be more tolerant of my fellow man or woman...its very hard....& its only the 3rd Jan !

You're too late as it's mostly in bits now, items of furniture are always being dumped along there or thrown over the bridge onto the disused rail track bed.

If they find out what scumbag dumped this take it to his or hers scumbag house and chuck it through front window.thy will not do this again.

Oh Jim, what a Gentleman! The corner cupboard in the pic is a modern one; mine, (though falling to bits!), is an old one with diamond panes that are actually individual panes, not "drawn on", if that makes sense. What annoys me is that the person who has dumped it hasn't CARRIED it....it's been driven there in a vehicle; if they can drive it there why can't they drive it to the tip or a charity shop? It makes my blood boil! I can't even bear seeing people dropping litter.

Most of that type of furniture is from the 80's and its usually veneer over chipboard. You do see a lot of it in charity shops but it's slow moving. The trend now is to have solid wood in a light oak colour. Somehow I can't see it being Priory or Old Charm- as it wouldn't have been dumped in the first place as it would be considered a heirloom piece. Apologies to Blob HE or SHE!

Irene your corner cupboard sounds like my bookcase with individual pieces of glass with lead around. Probably Old Charm or Priory which I love! ( even if it is falling to pieces!)

Comment by: Blob on 3rd January 2018 at 17:38

Accepted V, but it's more than likely a HE.

Comment by: irene roberts on 3rd January 2018 at 17:54

It is Priory, Veronica, bought second-hand over forty years ago. It holds some of my books as I don't have room for a book-case....I would love one if I had the room!

Comment by: Veronica on 3rd January 2018 at 19:13

Keep looking Irene you may find one usually well loved!

Rubbish frequently gets tipped on Highfield Road, Hindley which meets up with Hemfield Road, Ince. It is really maddening as Kirkless tip is only a few yards away. I can't get over the laziness and inconsideration of some people.
