A large lorry passed me on the motorway the other day. I’d seen this haulage company before but this lorry had a large red sticker on the trailer. The sticker proudly claimed that the trailer was made of 99% recyclable material.

Just to put that into perspective:-

  • Each wheel is made from nearly 60kg of rubber and a lorry has something like 18 of those.
  • The lorry is made from many tonnes of metal.
  • The fuel tank holds somewhere between 50 and 400 gallons of diesel.
  • None of this includes the weight of the cargo itself or what it may be made of.

Whoopee fucking do on your recycled trailer, the most recyclable thing in the lorry is the copy of Razzle that has provided the driver with at least ten wanks.
