    So they just chuck them away?
    Im not surprised that the developers done give a hoot about the artwork, bit those thick sheets of ply wood cost about £30 a sheet…
    and they just go into landfill?
    What a waste.

    Yeah, someone shouted across the street ‘They haven’t thrown that away have they? That’s criminal!’ as that photo was taken.

    Interesting point about the boards too, maybe some sort of recycling scheme could be set up for them, so they can be used for painting sometime. See enough of them in skips all the time.

    Nope, firmly wedged under a pile of crap. Skip was pretty much full and ready to be taken…

    Good answer! Glad this was considered at least. Such a shame though.
