    There was a program recently on CN4 about "scrappers".... One guy did say that some (not him) would take anything inc Kids bikes left in gardens... May be worth letting the police know as they seem to be using the floods as an excuse...


    Seperate note.. Our dishwasher packed up and I removed it yesterday.. Sat it at the top on the drive and noted the time.. 11am... At 11.40 the "scrap fairies" arrived and took it away..

    It does seem the way of the world, scrapping is easy money and if you are abit unscrupulous as they can be in Mansfield, nothing is safe. They came up our drive about a month ago to scout for scrap,asked the wife if they could have the two batteries on the yard, "No she said my husband wants them"
    OK he says, two days later she had gone out and Bingo the batteries disappeared they worth about a tenner each

    The dog is the best deterrent for Eastern Europium totters, he has better hearing than us and is always up for a challenge. My son collects a lot of metal from his work, he stacks it at the end of the garden until he has a load then takes it to the scrap yard. You would be surprised how it mounts up. I've been thinking of going around the streets with a bell myself.:winky:

    There's the old story, probably apocryphal, about the chap who had a fridge to dispose of, but it worked fine and was too good to throw away. He put it in his garden with sign saying "free fridge. Please help yourself", but a couple of weeks later it was still there, so he changed the sign to say " fridge for sale. £50". It disappeared within 15 minutes!

    Definitely report the chap to the Police, it is THEFT, he had no permission to take the heater or enter your premises, if he's done this to you, he'll definitely be doing it to others! :Angry:

    When we replaced our bathroom suite a couple of years ago, we put the old one outside in the carport until we had the chance to take it to the tip, within a couple of days the taps had been 'removed' whilst we were out by some cheeky bu**gers!

    We have, however, benefited from tatters too, we had an old car axle that we wanted rid of but it was very heavy, and our old washing machine which was kaput, but we also had the old bathroom suite (which they weren't interested in) but we said if they took the bathroom suite they could have the rest ... so it all went in one go ... result!!! :thumb:

    Brass is valuable

    I have just weighed some scrap metal in - a pair of taps = £6. :thumb:

    All I have to do now is decide how much of the money I got I am going to spend on the wife's christmas present. ::bigsmile:

    scrap fairies can be useful too.

    we are upgrading local housing association properties...new kitchen and bathroom along with rewires.

    we do have a skip at our yard but when you have a bath, basin, toilet and kitchen units to get into a toy noddy van (berlingo) and transport it to the yard it becomes a problem.

    not any more, collared rhe fairies twice now.

    two tinbaths, two kitchen sinks and an old gas fire....and it frees up space in the skip.
