A pal of mine who works for a skip hire company was telling me about the
high cost for builders wanting to get rid of old plasterboard. I suggested
this could lead to yet more fly tipping but, apparently, some builders are
getting rid of it by putting it into the cavity of walls.
Does this seem likely ?
If it saves them money then unscrupulous builders may do anything to save
money ... I heard that whilst they were building the Titanic and other ships
they'd weld workers inside bulk heads just to save money on the wages !!!
The document wasn't meant to become public knowledge but was leaked.
Some house builders (mainly the ones that build on a smaller scale) still
have a bit of pride left, unfortunately money & profit are what it's all
about nowadays, especially with Barratt and the other big ones.
With their business methods and the way they take the public for fools make
me agree with Andrew wholeheartedly.
The other convenient space to leave crap in is between floorboards & the
ceiling below. Usually flammable materials like wood-shavings, the tongues
split off lifted floorboards, oily rags etc and usually right next to the
ceiling-rose connection with the loose wire....
