I sincerely hope that you're joking booboo , but if you're not you should be thoroughly ashamed of yourselves , and deserve to be banged up in jail for senselessly damaging the environment . The toxic fumes given off by burning plastics , foam , polystyrene etc. are all extremely damaging to the environment and contribute towards global warming , which is indirectly killing loads of people around the world every year , and will only get worse in the years to come . Of course if a fridge is old enough to contain CFCs , which are now banned , it is even more harmful , and should be taken to specialists who can safely remove the CFCs (I'm not sure if such facilities exist in Bulgaria) .

A Bulgarian friend works with the Red Cross in Varna, I'm sure they would be happy to receive any clothing you have spare. Also Neets on BIB

I have a Bulgarian friend who will pass it on to the Red Cross if you prefer, but I think putting it by the bin is a better way to go

I find the best way to get rid of rubbish is simply leave it outside the house with a sign saying "FOR SALE €50". Gone in 60 seconds :lol:

In all seriousness, anything I can't give away gets chucked in the village pond for TimeTeam 2160 to dig up and rant over. :wink:

Don't get me started on global warming....

Безплатни ... помогне на себе си ..i hope thats correct,

we do this with our childrens old clothes that they have out grown ..they soon go.


that's a lovely gesture and guess its very much appreciated. when first came to BG in 2003 house hunting, left our 6 year old sons clothes (apart from those he was travelling home in) all clean and folded on the beds at the guesthouse. Didn't speak enough Bulgarian then to say who they were for but expect they found a good home! Brought out adult winter coats later that year and and did same thing.

Hi i have 4 large bags of mixed adult/kids clothes and maybe 1/2 bags of baby clothes i'd like to donate. Does anyone know where the nearest charity to me is Provadia area or i guess varna would be ok at my convenience due to traveling.
