How to dispose of garden waste efficiently

Everyone knows cleaning a garden is a big job that can create a lot of garden waste. But a bigger job is disposing of garden waste, especially if you don’t know how to do it properly.

Too often, I see people taking their garden clippings to the dump, thinking they are doing the right thing when it is not environmentally friendly.

As the owner of multiple waste removal companies, I am often asked how to dispose of garden waste efficiently. Today, I will answer this question.

Continue reading to discover some efficient and eco-friendly ways of garden waste disposal.

1. Composting

Compositing is the most eco-friendly way of disposing of garden waste. Through composting, garden waste is turned into compost and other soil materials. This compost is then reused by farmers and the agriculture and landscaping industries.

While composting is great, it is usually not viable for all homeowners. Composting takes up a lot of useful garden space, and it produces a foul smell. Moreover, if done improperly, compost can also attract various pests.

One alternative to composting is to hire a garden waste skip bin, such as those we offer at 4 Waste Walk-In Skip Bins. With a garden waste skip bin, all you have to do is collect your waste and dump it into the bin. Rubbish removal experts will collect the skip bin and send your waste for composting.

2. Putting it into council green bins

Local councils all across Australia have issued green bins, which I’m sure you’ve seen around your neighbourhood. These green bins are specifically meant for 100% green/garden waste.

The council collects these bins fortnightly and sends them for proper treatment.

While green bins offer an efficient way for garden waste disposal, they are quite small in size. In fact, if you do a proper trim and tidy of your garden, you’ll have to wait for two collections – an entire month – to dispose of all your clippings.

So, if you have more than grass clippings, you will need an alternative, such as a garden waste skip bin.
