We all like to see old objects brought up to date, don't we? Or do we just want "new" to replace "old" without any regard to the land-fills and rubbish tips around the world that pollute the world for future generations? Many an attic or garage is full of "worthless pieces of junk" all of which, in their day had been useful, loved objects. They are now neglected, ignored and taking up space only to be cleared out and dumped when people have the time or necessity. Let's recycle here in Sheffield. Just a small example below, of what can be done with local expertise and a little imagination.
