PSA – Fire wood from your local authority
For all you fellow woodburnerists, you’re local authority may supply you with firewood at a decent price, mine (South Ayrshire) does!. This little lot was dropped off last thursday, from a Landy with a hydraulic tipper.
Once neatly stacked in the wood shed, took up 2m3. 47 quid. Not bad. Most of it is pretty dry, but I have plenty of wood anyway, so this’ll dry til next year now, maybe even the year after. All hard wood as well.
Give your council a call, you never know.Posted 5 years ago
Ooooh – result!
I’m needing a delivery fairly soon so that’s a good tip. Can never have too much, as McMoonter will testify.
However, if Fife Cooncil handle such things in their characteristic way, it’ll be 4 years late and still unseasoned.
[EDIT] Which dept. did you contact?Posted 5 years ago
Stuart, I just put a general enquiry into the SAC website, they emailed me back the details.
Ski, I didnt get a chance to speak to them, as I was sleeping off a night shift. I recognise maybe about a quarter of it as being sycamore, the rest is a bit darker, dunno. Wish it was all sycamore.Posted 5 years ago
Fife council are worse than useless. They shred timber brought in by the parks dept. Yesterday’s ride was yielded a stash of wood destined for the shredder. A dawn raid liberated it.
You can never have too much. My new stove arrives tomorrow, I should have it in for Christmas.Posted 5 years ago
I’ll see what he says tomorrow in terms of prices and delivery/pickup. I’m working until Friday lunchtime then it’s the “Balwearie Apocalypse” as forecast by the Mayans 4000 years ago.
No immediate hurry in the run up to Xmas though – could go for a day between Xmas and NY if you’re free. Offer much appreciated!Posted 5 years ago
