Things You Need to Know About Green Waste Skips

Have you just purchased a new property with a huge yard or garden? If you have then you have just walked into the new world of gardening, a world that you will grow to love – that is, if you don’t already.

Gardens provide so many great benefits beyond their beauty, but in return for these benefits, they need to be cared for and maintained – just like a pet. Maintaining a garden can be time-consuming which is why many homeowners only tend to their gardens every few months. If this is how you plan to approach your yard/garden then a green waste skip is what you need. It will make light work of any garden clean-up and make the entire process much quicker and more enjoyable.

But before you call me to hire one of our green waste skips, let me give you a little background information about them.

#1: Green waste skips accept only 100% green waste

First and foremost, the first and most important rule to remember about green waste skips is that the only accept 100% green waste.

“What is Green Waste“, you ask? Green waste comprises the following: Fruit and vegetable scraps, branches, stumps, palm fronds, tree limbs, twigs and small branches, lawn clippings and other garden waste.

This means you cannot dispose of the following items in a green waste skip: soil, bark, dirt, sand, rocks, stone, bricks, pebbles, palm tree trunks, roots, synthetic grass or any hazardous materials.

#2: Green waste skips promote recycling

Because only 100% green waste is collected in our green waste skips, all of the green waste we collect is able to be recycled and turned into compost which then is put back into our soils. This reduces the amount of waste that goes to landfills and reduces greenhouse gas emissions.

When you hire a green waste skip you can be left feeling good inside knowing you’re doing your bit to save the environment 🌍.

#3: Green waste skips are the best solution for large amounts of green waste

When it comes to removing large quantities of green waste, there is no better removal solution than a green waste skip. While the council offers green wheelies bins, they are limited in size and are only collected on a fortnightly basis. Therefore if you have a large amount of green waste to remove, it can literally take months to have it cleared. Whereas, even our smallest green waste skip can hold as much as 8 times more waste one of the council’s green wheelie bin, and it removes all the waste in an instance.
