It's that time of of the year [again] to get rid of your unwanted items ...

Are you having a clear-out?

Charity shops are a great place to find a bargain ... and your local bin area could suddenly be full of useful 'waste'.

Are you a recycler or a tosser?

I'm a scoffer, I've never had a problem scoffing all the selection boxes before 12th night.

It might be unlucky if I don't!

Now common Aitchbee nobody is going to admit being a Tosser.

Jock1e - to be a tosser requires a cold-hearted disregard for stuff that might be useful 'at a later date'. So I can safetly say I am not a tosser ... but a recycler. It's in my bones!

It's always fun doing an eBay search for "unwanted present" on Christmas morning.

In the last week I've bought two brand new Ralph Lauren shirts for about £10 each, both are genuine, unworn, and less than 10% of the retail cost

I am. So far I have found in my 'spares' cupboard - 4 servers, 6 PC's, 10 inkjet printers, 1 dye sub printer, 5 CRT monitors and a few boxes of assorted leads, power blocks, keyboards and dead rodents. All will be going for recycleing.

My definition of a tosser is somewhat different. I take it you meant a Tosser-outer? My bin is already full and it's not quite spring yet. It would probably be better to sell items on e-bay I suppose but I can't bring myself to do that. easier to chuck them out. The only Christmas presents I got were bottles of rum and I will be chucking them out/re-cycling when they are empty and certainly not before.

I have just returned from a visit to the local charity shop (Age UK) dropping off an assortment of unwanted Christmas gifts, from 2012 and years past. I found them whilst having a root around in my loft after putting the decorations away for another year.

It's amazing what you accumulate!

I suppose it all comes down to the area you live in, regarding names?.

In my area a 'tosser' is normally referred to as a person of stupidity or worse :O)

I like to refer to myself as a bit of a 'save this for another time' or infrequent recycler. Every Tuesday in my area is bin and recycling day, and outside my property is usually the location for a big pile of recycle bags from other neighbours for easy collection. Looking at the pile this morning, and what the bags contain, I am surprised that an 'independent recycler' hasn't taken the opportunity to have a sort out first. Kid's obsolete devices, electric fans, vacuum cleaner's, fish pond water pumps, but to name a few items that appear to be all there for disposal!.
