Hi! First post on here for me so here goes. I have read on AngloINFO that you can bring some plants into cyprus(when moving for instance) apart from some on an EU list, but this is not enlarged on. I have looked on other forums but none mention bringing plants to Cyprus...so does anyone have any first hand experience or can confirm that this is indeed ok to do, as i am moving here soon and would love to bring some of my own favourite plants with me... Thanks Keith.

Buy your milk in plastic bottles and not in cartons, but take the empty bottles to a recycling collection centre.The cartons (bricks) are in plastified cardboard, requiring a lot of energy to make, and are impossible to recycle. They help fill the landfills.The bottles are in a polyester called polyethylene terphthalate (PET). They are not recycled back into bottles for foodstuffs, for hygienic reasons, but they are recycled back into bottles for other products, packing materials, fibres for insulation, knitting "wool", clothing, carpets, ropes etc. To recycle used bottles into any of these consumes about one-tenth of the energy than it takes to manufacture virgin plastic and no petroleum.However, before offloading them for recycling, I have used them a second time, as freezing containers for liquids, such as soup or fruit juice. Immediately after they are emptied, I half-fill them with cold water, put the lid on with a good shake and repeat, to clean them. I've used them frequently for home-made lemon squash, veggie soups, grapefruit and orange juice etc. Be sure to leave about 4-5 cm empty at the top or you may have a mess in your freezer, as the products expand on freezing. I've frozen soup which was perfectly OK after more than a year.I re-use the bottles only once before recycling.Devil

Can anyone give me info on septic tanks, a subject I know nothing about! My proposed house will not be on mains drainage in Limassol so I presume this is what I will need to have installed. Who puts them in, a plumber or a builder? and roughly how much are they? thanks, Kaz

Dear All,Does anyone know where I can buy a new sofa in Nicosia? I've been to a couple of places but none have that big a range and are very expensive. I seem to only be able to find boutique places. Are there any large shops that have many different types on offer? Thanks,Chris
