So called 'green waste' a real threat to the hobby!!

The stories and photos just keep flooding in, on the so called 'Green Waste' being spread on our beautiful countryside. Detectorists are keen to point out that the 'Green Waste' is not Green at all.

Will the government listen?

Please sign the petition.



Large pile of “mashed” MDF with alloys & plastics in
This gets used as bedding (mixed with hay/straw) to soak up the waste, that gives you this….


This is left to rot for a while then spread along with all the plastic & metallic waste. All the “bits” in the pictures are either plastic coated MDF, plastic waste etc etc.




As you can see some of it isn`t “small” ! 
Furthermore I have my concerns that the adhesives/toxins in the MDF will leach into the soil & crops grown in it. Nice things like Formaldehyde!!
