Hi, was at the local tip yesterday - having a good sort out after Christmas.
Man infront of me was throwing a rollater into the skip - followed by a collapsable wheelchair (thought I should ask to buy it from him) have awful trouble walking
but my family would have been horrified if I'd brought it home.
He then threw in lots of other things that would help a disabled person - walking frame, toilet supports, comode etc.
I got really upset.
When it came to my turn I asked the man who worked at the tip if all the things couldn't be saved. He said second hand places
are very particular. We took some old bikes to the tip last week, they get collected and repaired and then sold again.
Still thinking today that I should have said something - such a waste - what do other people do with used things?
Just wanted to share it with you as I my family wouldn't understand.
