    Surprised BHF accept any CRT tvs at all to be honest.

    If it's too big to carry, get a lift to Vale Street free recycling, or club together with other neighbours for a street collection - first four items £20.

    Or if none of those appeal, maybe smash it up and put it in your bin.

    I was surprised too - but they are.
    Smashing up is definitely illegal - mercury and other contaminants involved.
    I shall just have to cultivate a friendly car owner.

    Aye. So is leaving it on the street - where it will probably get smashed up! So of the two - better in the bin, I say.

    Check Vale street opening times. They are open all weekend so close one or two days in the week. I regularly forget this. :facepalm:

    couldnt you find someone to remove the innards and recycle as trendy shabby chic fish tanks or terrariums :thumbs:

    Yes good idea - it could be adapted to be a work of public art to enhance the planters up by the crack clinic.

    hello. wondering if anyone knows someone who can help with a bit of garden clearance/ tidying - breaking up some concrete and removing it, taking up a large tree stump, removing old grass/ laying new turf and fitting a new fence? thanks.

    I use a retired accountant who is the mum of a friend of a friend. I have emailed her to see if she is in the market for new clients and will let you know.?

    Does anyone know a good glazier or locksmith (?) - not sure what I need really. We have folding patio doors that were put in maybe 5 years ago. The doors (frame, handle etc) were imported from Poland by the chap who did the work. He's since gone off radar. My husband managed to break the door handle off recently, when the doors were closed, so there's no way of opening them. It's proving impossible to source a new handle. Have had one quote to replace the whole thing - new doors, new glass etc - but it's ££££s and there must be a way of just fixing the lock/handle.
    Any advice v gratefully received as a bit stuck.

    I've found Kingseal in Clapham very helpful in the past.

    It shouldn't be necessary to replace the whole lot just because the handle's broken! And depending on exactly what's broken it might be a fairly simple DIY job. Can you post a photo of the broken handle?

    Put it on freecycle. There might well be someone who thinks they might use it for something some day. Then it can sit cluttering up their house for the next 10 years instead of yours :thumbs:

    Anyone need an ikea kallax unit - 2x4 in black:

    KALLAX Shelving unit - white - IKEA

    Second hand for me, but has just stored records for a year or so, so is still in good condition.

    It's in Herne Hill / Brixton, but you'll need some way of transporting it once it's been taken apart (this Saturday).

    Do you think it would work laid on it's side?

    SpamMisery I bet you think this tagline's about you?

    It does. My mate uses one on its side for his decks with the squares holding his records

    Yup, that's how mine is at the mo.

    I was going to build some shelves in a cupboard. Puting this inside would save a lot of hassle. So if no one else needs it...

    Might save you dismantling it too?
  23. snowy_again

    You're welcome to it!

    Think it might struggle to get into the lift unless it's dismantled though.

    I'll send you a pm

    Storm Imogen has done for a panel in our back garden fence. Does anyone have any recommendations for someone who could fix it please?

    I used these: very quick and didn't try to quote for a whole new roof when I just needed a repair (unlike some other local firms)
