Sian, the key is to remove food waste completely from the bin waste, then all that is left is plastic.

If you did that for my mother in law it would end up a poison ivy.....[/quote] Thanks for that, Big Al. This raises a problem for under tree burials in general. Namely, keeping up (or down) with the Joneses's. There should be no negative connotation with a person's last placement. Respect should re...
