I don’t buy from Amazon if at possible but have recycled some packaging for eBay deliveries, we buy from local butchers or fishmonger so black trays are a minimum. Weekend papers are full off bumff, advertising drivel that nobody reads, posties deliver stuff that goes straight in recycle bin, lets go back to chips in yesterday’s newspaper, some of this is easily changeable if the mood was there.

Not sure what you could use it for, it's quite alkaline, that particular dryer has the option to vent the water out instead of using the reservoir (that my wife WILL forget to empty) it runs out to my concreted back yard, and cleans it just as well as my female dogs piss!!!!!

So the water from the dryer will kill grass and weeds too.

Could be safer than a lot of the current weed killers on sale.
