General Discussion / Re: Recycling etc

I suspect it depends where one lives - although I'm sure contacting the commune will work - eventually. In fact we have a proper recycling place near us in the Castilenti commune.

General Discussion / Recycling etc
« Last post by Rustychain on July 08, 2019, 11:14:05 AM »
I'm just wondering if Italy has come on in recent years re local recycling centres / tips. In the UK & France every town has a centre where people can take items for recycling / rubbish / old fridges etc etc. I've never come across anything like that in Italy but wondered if things have changed in the years that we've been here.

Of course, most of the communal rubbish / recycling bins have disappeared from Abruzzo over the years, to be replaced by individual household ones.

We have a recently deceased fridge & the wisdom seems to be "Contact the commune & they'll take it away at Point X in the future". Is that still the best advice?

Cheers.

Thanks for the comment Molino , I would accept 3000 euros i suppose which is incredibly cheap for an inground pool especially if you have access to digging equipment.

Thanks for the suggestion of subito i will put it on later, must admit after 356 views i am amazed nobody is interested in a swimming pool in this weather!!

I think that might be because most of us who have pools have opted for the much cheaper and easier option of an above ground pool. You can buy them in a reasonable size for around 400 euro and you don't need any permission to put them up. I only know one person here who has an in ground pool. I think because of this it might be harder to sell than you think. Try ebay.it you might have some luck there if no takers on Subito.

If you get no takers here have you thought of advertising on Subito.it? There is a link, right at the top of the page, just underneath the banner.

A similar kind of question I?ve been looking for wheelie bins our commune used to supply them but sadly no more and our system for recycling is impossible for a rental property. Does anyone have any ideas.

As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago we have now given up on the idea of a swimming pool purely down to site access. I forgot to mention that the kit includes fibreglass steps approx 2000 eur and the coping stone kit approx 800 eur ,additional parts you need  would be roughly 1200 eur with Labour and concrete would give you a professional hotel style pool.
We now need the space , i mentioned i would take for the lot what I paid 5000 eur,but I will accept any reasonable offer! Collection only.
