Last big bit broken in bits and used as a broken stone substitution at the bottom of a big planter. Not an ideal.

We are long past the point where "recycling facilities" should be burying this crud, the technology to simply steam the poly to a mere fraction of itself has been around for ages, ..infuriating.

I try to avoid big bits of expanded PS. If the need does arise, a quick zoom-over with the blow-torch reduces it to a small pebble.

Of course it'll work. (I hope).

Thanks Nickel, we were transporting the units from the Whirlpool factory (& shop) in P/boro via the little merc it's as they come no choice in packaging, however I did manage to liberate some wood from their skips where others had left the new packaging from various bits n pieces, small action, but...

I felt a little better that the units had come from within the uk (whatever that means these days ie the british mini is so in/ out components wise) so the footprint was possibly a tad smaller than that of a bosch (as well as several hundred quid cheaper).

At least that was the well meaning theory.

If you pour petrol on polystyrene it melts before your eyes, a  gel is formed which is called called Napalm  sh*tfan
