I’ve been pondering the recent discussion taking place on our web site about the possibility of traffic wardens issuing fines to law-breaking skips (View skip hire discussion)! I started wondering where it might lead – it’d be pretty hard to clamp a skip, so if the fine was ignored would they tow it away for you? If they then impounded it, wouldn’t they need a waste management license to store it??
Anyway, enough pondering. This month’s cracking pair of overloaded skips come courtesy of Carr & Bircher in Saffron Walden. The delightful contrast between the two pictures made me wonder (which is not technically ‘pondering’) what a nature expert might have to say about them. So, it’s time for…
WHAT WOULD DAVID ATTENBOROUGH SAY?
“The chameleon skip really is a remarkable species. Take these two pictures here, for example. You can see quite clearly from the markings on the shell of the creature that it is in fact the same animal. And yet, when placed in a different environment, it has an incredible ability to blend in by adapting the appearance of it’s upper body. In the first picture, we see cold, clean industrial lines when the skip becomes cornered within a building. Then, when the skip is back outdoors, it reverts it’s bodily form to reflect the green, luscious surroundings of it’s natural habitat. Absolutely wonderful.”
Please keep your overloaded skip photos coming. Email them through or post them to – The Skip, Baxall Business Centre, Adswood Road, Stockport, SK3 8LF.
