Today was wastepaper collection with the scouts. We were fairly short on manpower, but luckily there was also quite little wastepaper to collect this time. My team found a paper mâché cow head at the beginning and we had to use it as a mascot on our truck. :-)
Afterwards we welded a steel frame for a new sink in our material store. We just used spare tent poles that were laying around unused for years.
That was an awesome project, sure, total overkill, but we had really good fun. Unfortunately, we ran out of time. We couldn’t paint the thing as it was still way too hot.
(#rrab2cq) @firstname.lastname@example.org I presume that’s not what’s happening by default when people throw it away, right? 🤔
(#rrab2cq) @email@example.com I see, curious. 🤔 I’ve never seen anyone but the “official” wastepaper trucks collect this stuff over here. It’s all organized by the city.
(#rrab2cq) @firstname.lastname@example.org Interesting, indeed! It didn’t occur to me that other places organize it differently. I reckon, most clubs aren’t that huge anymore as they were back in the days. So this concept only works for collecting areas that aren’t very large, hence, smaller towns and villages. The places currently listed here are not super big: https://www.du-willkommen.de/altpapiersammlung.html
