Drive to one of these stations and dump all of your car trash. The trash containers are all accessible from the comfort of your car. These facilities could have multiple cans for paper, plastic and aluminum to encourage recycling.

What is Aluminum? We just don't know. [pooduck, Sep 10 2005]

Does it really matter? [pooduck, Sep 10 2005]

       What is to stop you just driving to the civic amenity site - the dump? I could see there being some problems pushing a bin bag out through your car window... <sp>Aluminium.

       Actually [fridge] it seems it can be spelt either way. See link.

       Aluminum is as much a word as nuculer, every british scientist will point out the mistake in both those words.

       This isn't an exclusively British site...

       So that's why you guys (brits and aussies) pronounce it that way!
dogzapper, Sep 10 2005
  

       Well I know some people pronounce it like that, I did my best to spell it properly, but the term properly doesn't really apply to a fictional word does it?

       Honestly, you push the rubbish out of the window, Pa`ve? Or do you stop the car and get out to dump rubbish at specific points according to what it is? I think the fishbones are for the "from the comfort of your car" bit. For my part, I'd really rather not be in the car while pouring a couple of gallons of dirty engine oil into a tank for recycling.
