We are currently looking for a number of 'general' items that used to be widely available either cheap, or sometimes even free, but I can't seem to find anything in or around my area. Would appreciate if someone could point me in the right direction, or even if someone has any of these items for sale.
* Styrafoam boxes (used to be at the 'local' greengrocer)
* Drums (to store rainwater/ make liquid manure in)
* Hessian sacks
* Old stockings to tie up my tomatoes
I am trying to use as much recycled/ recyclable material as possible but I don't know where to start looking, in the old days it was almost a family affair to go rabbiting through the tip - Mum always complained because Dad took 1/2 trailer load and usually came back with more!
On the plus side, I rang a tire company in Wacol and asked for 'dead' tyres they said to come and get as many as I want!
I do have access to some Acetone drums but am not sure if they would be suitable so if someone has feedback on this I would appreciate it - Hubby is convinced they will be fine as it evaporates with no residue...
