Hello

I've read (see Downsizing > Reduce, Resuse, Recycle - various threads) that there are now places in the UK to send old CDs.

Does anyone know of similar collection points in France?

Thanks

No, but do you have fruit trees? They make excellent bird scarers, I saved all my cherries from the birds this way last year....and if not you then perhaps a neighbour?

Otherwise you can always send them to me....the time is upon us to be decorating!

No, sorry boxcorner. We've used them in the garden like Clara.

They can also make quite funky coasters.

Thanks, I am aware of alternative uses. However, I have quite large quantity available, considerably more than I could possibly use myself, hence I am seeking to get the plastic recycled, as seems to be possible in the UK. I will gladly to send you some, if you let me know how many you want and reimburse just the postage.

Is that an offer to all those who live in the land of Frogs?
If so, I would gladly take some off your hands for p&p.
