Going to the dump


#1

How often do you go? Does your dump have any sort of etiquette? I like the wood crusher.


#2

Bit too clean nowadays. I used to like it when you just threw everything through a hole in a wall into a massive pit room.


#3

There’s a massive code of conduct.

  • No commercial vehicles
  • You’re supposed to have a sticker on your car to say you’re from Leeds (they don’t really check)
  • Reverse into the bays
  • No children out of the cars
    I COULD GO ON.

#4

I don’t go often enough. I’ve got a dead car battery knocking about in the boot of my car that needs taking, and a big bag of garden rubbish out the back too.


#5

My previous dump you had to show your driver’s licence.


#6

My home from home.


#7

Some of the stuff people get rid of these days, the dump men must make a fortune


#8

Used to go up the tip with my Dad every now and then as a younger man.

My Dad probably went up the tip about once a month and would always just go there unannounced and we’d be like “Mum, where’s Dad?” and she be like “I dunno, I thought he was here, he’s probably gone to the tip”


#9

Never been to one


#10

was talking about this with someone just yesterday.

helped the tv’s family clear out her grandma’s flat a few years back, which requires several trips to the tip to dispose of old furniture. started out feeling quite apprehensive and guilty about destroying all this stuff, but after a couple of goes at hurling cabinets and shit into the crusher, i was a full convert. so much fun and pure catharsis.

by the afternoon we were tearing around the place desperately trying to find more stuff to destroy.


#11

Sorry mate this a thread about the dump


#12

When I moved abroad I did about 7 trips to the dump. Hated it by the end.


#13

The guy on the gate at my dump was a bit sleazy towards my wife the last 2 times we went. Was odd


#14

I’ve been meaning to go for the past year. It’s just down the road so I’ve got no excuse really.

Filthy!


#17

A sleazy man?! In THIS day and age?!


#18

My apologies.

Got a mate who worked at the dump for a bit, he used to always go on about “you wouldn’t believe what people throw away mate!” then he became one of those Securicor men with the helmets and now he’s a Rentokill ratcatcher man


#19

did you all take turns to twat him about the head to ‘test’ the helmet at any point?


#20

My Dad was exactly the same was always disappearing down the dump
