What to do with hessian sacks?

Hi all

We have have quite a few hessian sacks piling up from when we buy logs during winter. What do you do with them afterwards? I know they are good to cover up bushes etc to protect them in the winter months, but we have no bushes or shrubs. Do people just throw them away or what? I can't remember the different places we got the logs from. Would anyone like them or should I just throw them away?

Cheers

Catherine

Why not take them back to where you buy the wood so they can be used again?

I would do, but I can't remember where we got them from !! Two different farmers tucked away somewhere Someone has been in touch with me and wants them anyway now, so all good. I'd much rather things get used again than just thrown.

Re: What to do with hessian sacks?

Do what I do - carry a few in the boot of the car in winter to put under the drive wheels, when you (or in my case) somebody else became stuck in snow and ice and couldn't get traction.

I was able to assist an elderly couple who'd become stuck in a fresh snow fall in a car park after everyone else had left - not up a mountain, but just in a village church car park after a Christmas eve children's nativity - but they could have just as easily been left stranded in a blizzard.

Until I came along, the man was leaving the car in drive, with wheels skidding and getting out of the driver's seat and trying to push from the back. God knows what would have happened if had regained traction, with him behind.
