Disposal of a box of rocks.
 
We have a box of fist sized rocks picked from the garden.
I know that the regular rubbish is a non runner. Oekihof doesn't seem to make sense as it's not really recycling.

I could just fling them into a field but...

What to do?

Happy new year one and all.

Dig a hole at the bottom of your garden and bury them. :msnwink:

If the stones are even half way decent (e.g. useful for filling a gabione), post an ad on ricardo/tutti/anibis to advertise them as a free give away. Stones have a value, commercial prices are around 30-50 Fr/t

Our dechetterie has a place for such 'waste'. It is a rural one though.

Afraid not, they're as ugly as, well, a box of rocks. Thanks for the suggestion.

If they are clean rock, would it be okay to lob them in to the lake? Do you know what type of rock it is?

Your Oekihof might indeed take them, stone is often considered 'Bauschutt':

Before going to the trouble of hauling the lot down, take one to the Oekihof and ask.



Alternatively, do you have a stone drain around your house? When we find garden rocks, we take up the top layer of decorative stone, distribute the ugly rocks wherever extra stone is needed, replace the decorative stone on top.

Or, are you into raised bed gardening? Use the stone as filler/drain in a bed.

Any "Feldweg" (farm path or paths in the forest) will do?!

Pet Rocks may come back into fashion, you could sell them at 100 francs each.

Ours has one as well and it's urban.

No, with those that refuse to carry their permits with them at all times!

NO! have you ever tried to compost rocks:confused:

Our Commune re-distributes compost for free twice a year- and I for one would rather not collect large rocks in it I would then have to dispose off. Thanks.
