(We didn’t burn the boxes – they got made down flat, to be used as building blocks at Bundle’s 5th birthday party in May. We just incinerated the paper. Made an awful mess).
The recycling men don’t take the stuff we were spoiled with in Somerset. This bonfire was before we realised we have a lovely little recycling centre just the other side of Leyburn (a mile, maybe), where they take everything except tetra packaging. But you can take your tetra packs to the car park in the town and there’s a special bin. One is Richmondshire, one is North Yorkshire. These things matter.
