County’s Tip Shops to Close

by

Like others throughout the county, Daventry Recycling Centre’s Shop is about to be closed by the County Council, and here’s what some of the locals think:

OUR PRECIOUS RE USE AREA IS THREATENED WITH CLOSURE BY THIS JUNE 2010 AND THE MOVING OF IT’S RESALE AREA TO MILES AWAY,
COSTING EXTRA FUEL AND EXTRA FUNDING FOR THE PREMISES.
 
We are told, the small area, verges that surround the existing site and the main shop area roughly 10M X 5M is needed for recycling not re use items.
 
There can be no more important feature of a recycling facility for local people than the ability to bring years more usage of toys, sofas, bicycles, fire surrounds, garden furniture, pictures and particularly spare parts
(That in themselves allow further life to other machines that would otherwise be scrapped).
 
Pensioners can treat their grand children without saving up for months, first time buyers can build that patio, or lay a garden path without breaking their strict financial restraints.
Those who can afford to leave a much loved but perhaps slightly chipped piece of their household goods will know it will be going to a good home thanks to the caring staff that know their customers.
 
Many people share their cars and trailers, even making the trip to the tip a family outing that makes it viable in one journey saving on fuel costs, reducing that ever valuable carbon footprint, making sure that children learn the importance of re use of their once much loved toys in a visual experience whilst also depositing rubbish that has to be crushed or used, in the worst scenario for a landfill
 
THESE SHOPS SHOULD BE OF NATIONAL CONCERN IN EVERY COUNTY OF ENGLAND.
 
These are OUR own products, on which we have already paid tax sometimes twice over. They are valuable and should not be thrown into a skip to be resold at a venue miles away from where they are deposited, by people who do not know their clients and their needs .

    It is essential that the people of Northants realise that in trying to close the TIP TOP SHOPS (the Daventry premises is the focus of our concern although this is Nationwide)the NCC are denying them their democratic rights and depriving many hundreds of families of the chance to reuse much needed materials.THIS IS ALSO AN ENVIROMENTAL DISGRACE and an election platform that must not go unheeded. We shall put on our website in the next few days the letters from Councils we have received.You must judge for yourselves if this is democracy.Please also visit out Guestbook and Kids Corner part of the http://www.thetoysthatcried.org for further information
