Did you know that a large portion of your garden waste is recyclable? Many homeowners opt to dispose of their green garden wastes in the trash. But wait! What if you find a way to convert yours into a valuable fertilizer for your garden?
Garden waste is highly beneficial, and it’s important to tackle its disposal issue responsibly to avoid throwing the treasure into the streets or landfills. If you don’t have a garden where you can use the waste, ensure that you remove it responsibly and dispose of it in an environmentally friendly way. In this article, we will provide you with three great options that you can use to dispose of your garden waste.
Let’s get started.
1. Keep a garden waste recycling bin
Recycling is the best and cheapest way of disposing of green garden waste. If you’re handling a small amount of garden waste, you can contact your local council to place your order and it will be delivered to your home.
It’s important to note that recycling bins aren’t the best option for large green waste disposal. Therefore, perform your garden clean up early to determine the size of the waste and project the estimated time required for the clean out.
When you’ve placed the waste into the bin, call your local council to collect it. The council will take it to the recycling depot.
While the recycling bin limits the amount of waste you can put in it, it’s a cheap and easy disposal method for a homeowner who’s not disposing of large amounts of garden waste.
2. Compost your garden waste
You don’t have to take your green waste to a local recycling centre. Instead, you can recycle it in your own garden. Compost the waste to convert it into mulch.
Although the composting process is long and tedious, it’s a great option for someone looking to maximally utilize their green waste. If you would like to use this method, follow the following simple steps:
- Get a chipper and cut down the wastes into small pieces
- Place the waste into a disposable compost bin or bag
- As the waste composts, ensure that it remains moist throughout the process
Please note that composting green waste doesn’t come with comfort. Your whole yard will be smelly and you’ll have to deal with rodents and flies.
3. Hire a skip
Garden skip bins are the cheapest and easiest disposal methods for garden waste. Simply contact a skip hire service provider near you and the skip will be dropped off at your home on the same day. Once you’ve collected the waste into the skip, removal experts will collect it and dispose of it for you.
Hiring a skip is a fast, cheap, and convenient method. Besides, skips don’t limit the amount of waste you can dispose of. It’s quite an easy method, right? Try it and see.
Garden waste is disposable in many ways. If you’ve got a garden, you shouldn’t worry about hiring a waste removal service- just compost the waste and use it in your garden. If the size of your garden doesn’t permit you to compost the waste, hire a skip or contact your local council to collect it and take it for recycling.
