A day in a grab lorry (2)


Oxford Street looks different from the cab!

We continued down to Clapham Common, to the specific point indicated by our customer, Lambeth Council. There was nobody there, but a quick phone call to our contact promised he would be there in 15 mins. So it was time to grab some lunch from the nearby burger van. But of course, as soon as we had our food, the chap turned up, in a JCB. He then proceeded to tell us that we were in the wrong place and we should follow him to another place, at the south end of the Common. It remains a mystery to this day why we couldn't have been directed there in the first place...

But we got the fourteen bags of compost off and could continue empty (or "light" as we say at sea) down to Esher, to load some woodland mulch.
