Transport of allotment rubbish to the tip

The general allotment rubbish at the front of the allotment area needs to be transported to the tip in individual vehicles otherwise we will be charged. If anyone willing can bring a suitable vehicle (4×4′s are good). We plan to reduce the rubbish to a suitable size and provide bags so it won’t mess people’s cars up.
