For a majority of people that have their own garden, the thought of not knowing what to do with their garden waste is a daunting thought.
When you are clearing out your garden, tidying your flower beds or re-doing the fencing, a lot of waste produced won’t be able to go into your standard bins so you need to know how you can safely and legally dispose of it.
Please get in touch with Compost It if you need advice on understanding your garden waste.
What should you do with your green waste?
Green waste consists of plant matter, soil, seeds, grass and hedge trimmings and more!
There are various ways of disposing of your green waste.
- Hire a rubbish collection agency that specialises in disposing of green waste. We also recommend checking if they are approved by the Environmental Agency and if they are licensed and insured.
- Recycle your garden waste. You can put this into a compost pile and can be used to feed plants or flowerbeds. Laying this over garden surfaces will enrich the ground over a period of time. Find out how here.
What can be recycled?
- Leaves and flowers
- Grass and weeds
- Tree bark and pruned branches
