Have yet to replace the oven as we were busy with a sick child...Mattias...and putting up drywall. Take out night! The oven is TOAST! The entire bottom framing is falling apart and the only thing holding it in place is the two counters it sits between! LOL! It must have been the 30 lb turkey that took it over the edge from functional...barely..to completely useless. Will have to call the Regional Recycling Centre and have a scrap metal contractor take it away. I wonder how much gets recycled?
Which brings me to a new topic...car seats! My friend had to throw away two car seats as they didn't meet safety standards. She called all around to find a recycling centre that would take them and no such thing! They are metal, plastic and fabric....what gives? She even offered to take them apart into building materials but they all said landfill only. How many car seats end up in the landfill every year?
So I will score us 3/4. The exceptions list is growing....sigh.
