Hi all,
We're lifting some very old wool carpet this weekend. Just thought I'd check if anyone wanted some for things like covering compost bins or mulching
(trust me its no good for anything else!!). I'm assuming there's underlay there too in case that's' any good to anyone. Carpet is probably 30 years old and will probably break down pretty quick!

Let me know ASAP if you do. There's 1 room's worth (about 25 sq.m) and 1 flight of stairs about 1m wide. Any leftover will just end up in the dump so even if a little bit finds some new use I'll be pleased.

Hope you're all enjoying the summer! I may have moved into town but i DO remember to wish for rain (although I don't think it's been much help!!)

Thanks moggy. That's good to know.
I'd even asked the carpet people if they recycled it and they said no they would only dump it! What a shame huh!
