    how to get rid of your rubbish...

    I have a large green wheelie bin that all my paper, card, tin and plastic goes in, this is emptied every other week. My landfill bin often goes in the back of my van on a trip to one of my customers who has a waste compactor, it's been as far north as Bury and as far south as St Albans :D

    Fluorescent fitting C/W PIR.

    Any idea where I can get a 6ft twin fluorescent fitting with a PIR on? The fitting in question operates by having both lamps on at a dimmed light until somebody approaches, the lamps then come on to full brightness. No wholesaler has been able to help so if anybody has a link to a site...
