With all the pressure of living in a greener world you may like to think about how you can get rid of your garden waste with little or no cost. This article will give you tips on the most cost-effective methods to dispose of your garden waste:
Much of your garden waste is biodegradable which means that you can easily make it into compost to re-use in your garden. Grass and flower cuttings alongside food waste are ideal for this purpose. You can make your own bin with posts and netting or choose from a range of bins designed especially. It’s best to start in the spring! Place woody materials at the base and add layers of different materials at regular intervals. The bin will heat up as it gets full and contents will need turning and watering to ensure ready compost in less than 4 months.
See the list below for an idea of what to compost:
- Grass cuttings
- Fruit and vegetable scraps
- Old cut flowers
- Tea bags and coffee grounds
- Paper bags and scrunched paper
It won’t be practical to dispose of all waste this way. Materials such as bricks and rubble can’t be composted. Larger amounts can be taken to your local tip or you could look into hiring a skip, but remember these can be awkward to load. You could hire a van to deal with several journeys to and from the tip if your vehicle isn’t suitable. Depending on your local council it may be possible to have up to five bags of garden waste collected each week free of charge but it must be tied in refuse sacks. Otherwise a chargeable collection will be made.
