We've inherited a big pile of used irrigation pipe from the previous owner of our smallholding. We've used some of it in fixing up the existing drip irrigation system (which we'd rather get rid of entirely, but that's another story!), but the majority of it is just too tatty to be worth reusing for its original purpose - too many splits, holes, kinks etc. I doubt that there's anywhere round here that we can take it to be recycled (to be honest I strongly suspect most of the "recycling" here goes in landfill anyway), so I was wondering if anyone has any creative suggestions for alternative uses that it can be put to. It's mainly 20mm diameter stuff, with a few lengths of 25mm and 32mm. It's too big/inflexible to be used as ties for things.

<Slaps head> Of course. We even saw some people with polytunnels made this way on the other side of the hill a few months ago. We'll definitely keep them for that!

Thanks!
