I am surprised that the archeologists and the BM are not putting their weight behind banning this pollution?

I remember seeing a recent feature on the Countryfile TV programme about the amount of plastic waste also being spread on the land through this green waste, which according to the companies that produced the waste, was well within the government regulations for plastic in waste - absolute tosh in my opinion, there should be no metal or plastic being spread on fields at all - what is the matter with these people? Is it just money that speaks now :g44: :g44: :g44:
Equinox 800 and a lot of luck!

I know that it causes problems with the geophysics surveys... i recall David Williams telling me when the petitions were going around.
