We bought one of those press thingys off eBay too and F told a friend about it.

Ever since, the friend has been popping around with a carrier bags full of newspapers. After year one, I just took them to the dump for recycling.

This is year three and not a single "brick" has been manufactured. But the shed is stuffed full of . . big_laugh

I know the feeling, I told the old ladies I garden for, and they keep 'donating' bags of papers, I thank them kindly and then stuff goes for re-cycling if I can't use it. Same goes for jars for my jams and preserves...I get so many given, I can pick & choose, if I can't get the labels off, or they are too big, then I can chuck them in recycling...last year I was struggling for jars...not this year
