As waste hire specialists, we understand getting rid of large amounts of household and garden waste can be a headache. While gardening is a rewarding hobby that can be therapeutic, it generates significant amounts of waste that requires correct disposal.
The process of decomposing organic materials such as leaves, grass clippings and vegetable scraps into a nutrient-rich soil amendment by either purchasing a compost bin or making your own. Composting is a sustainable way to dispose of garden waste as it reduces the amount of waste going to landfill, whilst providing a valuable resource for your garden.
Mulching involves spreading shredded leaves or grass clippings around plants to help retain moisture, stop weeds and improve soil quality. Mulching not only reduces the amount of garden waste but will also benefit your garden by providing a natural source of nutrients.
Not all garden waste is easily recyclable, but most of it can be placed into your council provided waste bin. Items such as leaves and flowers, grass, weeds, hedge trimmings and clippings and twigs, or home grown fruits and veg can all placed in these bins, but you need to follow exact what instructions from your local council. If you have any excess waste, it’s a good idea to take this to your local recycling centre – don’t forget to use a sturdy and strong bag that can be re-used.
Create a home
Encourage wildlife to your garden by creating a deadwood pile that could be used as a home for birds, bats and other animals and insects that like to visit your garden. According to RSPB, it’s best to use logs with the bark still attached and pile them so they are in direct contact with the ground in an area with dappled shade.
