Found at Aldi romford quite a few left.

Any heat added ?(_;)

Is it really eco-friendly to burn garden waste?

Banned

cars/planes/trains and everything else burns fuel releasing fumes into the air. Don't think abit of graden waste will make a difference.

Could be quite useful. Hope my Aldi have these left, because for just a measly 10 spot you can't go far wrong. Heat added.

how is it eco friendly to release the carbon back into the atmosphere? surely composting would be better. anyway, heat for the price

Very good price...

Releasing more carbon into the atmosphere, thereby guaranteeing that our children and grandchildren are going to have no chance of clearing up our mess (or potentially surviving).

There is very little that individuals can do about the big industrial issues such as transport and use of fossil fuels but choosing to recycle rather than incinerate is something that we can all do that actually makes a difference.

Please don't incinerate your waste, compost it and put it back on the garden - your flowers will thank you and so will your children's children.

Been looking for one of these for ages but prices are ridiculous defo getting one today heat added

Anyone whose got one can they stop it going scorched once you've had a fire? If they stayed chrome i'd leave it out all year...

I'm sorry, but a person incinerating some waste in an 85litre bin is not going to increase our carbon footprint by such levels as to stop any damage to the planet. heat added

you're wrong. why don't people see the bigger picture? lazyNess and ignorance I think you'll find. one person, maybe not, in the grand scheme of things, but a few thousand, needlessly doing it, yeah it will make a difference. don't burn, disposal is last on the preferred method of waste recycling hierarchy for a reason folks. recycle!

Totally agree with you here. Unfortunately most of these other clowns won't. Don't understand either why garden waste should be burnt. Most councils encourage you to recycle this stuff and they even provide a bin so they can collect it and take it away for you!!!! I'm sure the council then compost it. We have a small area at the bottom of the garden for leaves and small items of garden waste.

heat from me

You cannot compost weeds, so heat added. Will be fab for my allottment.

local authorities do compost it. as they do separate and recycle all our other rubbish too, except black bin waste, which is why we should make every effort to separate our own waste in the home, reducing the amount which goes to landfill!

ofcourse you can!

the main thing that gets me with burning garden refuse is that it stinks the whole neighborhood out, and if you happen to have any washing on the clothes line when your neighbor decides to start burning his leafs and branches you will end up washing the clothes again.

It's illegal to put Japanese Knotweed in the bin / compost and send to council recycling as it spreads.
Burning is the only option.

Unfortunately we have to incinerate ..... The council only take our bins once a fortnight and that's just not often enough. It's a 20 mile round trip to the dump for us so incinerating is just how it has to be since the council cut backs on services

I would agree with that in principle, not the only option, but probably the most accessible to us. I was going to say how many of us have the stuff in our garden however, but its possibly more than not these days, bloody invasive species!

what is 1x100000??? think about it.....

when you click on it to have a look it comes up with £19.99 I cant see where it says £9.99 has the price changed.

I was under the impression that the process of composting caused gasses to be released, methane and the like. Isn't that bad too?

its a vicious cycle as the rubbish isnt seperated enough and hence the waste to landfill is still too much- wherein the costs to landfill have risen, so the council have to cut back on costs/ services. not ideal. :-(

Bargain. I have a bit of old diesel to get things started...

Absolute cold from me.

Its a waste of money and bad for the planet and i just compost the green waste and with regard to weeds, i have attached a comment from Vegetable Gardener newsletter regarding compost bins.

"if one or two with seeds get in there, I don’t stress about it because, for the most part, hot piles fry the little seeds to death before they can rear their ugly heads again. That said, I won’t throw any weeds into my cold pile that have gone to seed. That’s just asking for trouble".
Those can be put in the green recycling bin if you have one.

Got mine last time Aldi had them. Wafer thin steel galv melts off at the bottom due to heat and then it rusts thru rapidly, dustbins used to come in much thicker steel, use mine on allotment lasted a year of fortnightly use, for a tenner and not used a lot ok

I sue mine instead of a document shredder.
I scan most important documents then wait till I have a big enough pile to burn them.
Shredding uses electricity and takes ages compared to burning as you can't constantly run most shredders due to overheating.

Says £19.99?

Unfortunately my local council, one of the largest in the country is going to be charging for collecting green waste from 2014 and everyone I talk to is going to be burning their waste from next year. It's the people at the top that need to change their attitude, the MP's, councillors, CEO's etc not the little people. Giving people another expensive at a time when living costs continue to rise while wages have been frozen for sometime is just putting going to put people off recycling. If they really wanted you to recycle why not charge the people that didn't recycle is instead of charging those who do? Mad world!

Councils only offer a recycling service to make even more revenue from us, not because they care about the environment!

i dont see how, it costs them to get rid of it?

Well they better watch out then as the Environmental Protection Act part 3 states that it is a statutory nuisance to create dark smoke to the detriment of others living nearby.
If i lived near you (and thankfully i don't) i would be making a formal complaint to the local authority.
It is a sign of the times that some people only have thoughts for themselves AKA me, myself and I.

There're a few different issues going on here (1) the price of the incinerator, (2)the benefits, or otherwise, of recycling and (3) the cost/ease of recycling.

(1) Haven't voted either way as I have nothing to compare to
(2) I'm not in the 'green crowd' but if something can be recycled and used again then surely it would be churlish to deliberately not to do so
(3) The biggest issue. I know each LA varies but we've had a big push to recycle over the years but now, with some councils stopping collections, introducing charges for bags/bins and other half-baked measures more and more people will resort to burning rubbish (if for no reason other than pure necessity) and we'll be in a worse state than when we started. LA's will I'm sure though, be able to find some money to employ people who are burning domestic rubbish 'illegally'!

Google it, first one I found shows one council making £2.5k profit each day!

news.bbc.co.uk/loc…stm

i dont wish to add to the carbon debate but are you allowed to use these in a 'smokeless zone' ???

When Sheffield council has outsourced the bins to Veolia, and the private company remove gardening recycling bins, then there's no option to put garden waste into our black bins. Otherwise pay nearly £100 to have access to have a green waste wheelie bin!? Some corporations are only interested in money, not the environment!
