At the bottom of every bag there is dust, and fine chippings

So what do you do with this dust, I been binning it for 30 years or more

This week for fun, I added water and tried to make my own bricks, brilliant that worked really well amazed in fact, then just crumpled and useless

So round to, blender (yes blender), dust add water to dry mix

Mix with water in bowl, to tick paste like filler - brilliant much better - cant get out the mould, crimples

Cling film bowl, same as before - BINGO nice bricks, any shape and size, I’m pleased. bit fragile and bit do crimple - trick is to really compact the dust, not that we can like a machine does

On the BBQ burns fine, bit quick in truth, the heats there just not long ;lasting probable 25% the burn time of a bracket normally

Not bad really for waste
