As we move into the final season of the year and we (reluctantly) embrace the darker nights, you may be thinking about putting your garden to bed. Or perhaps you have recently moved into a new home and the garden needs some TLC before Winter takes hold. But, do you know what to do with your garden waste removal?
We understand the stress and the daunting task that comes with sorting out a garden and the masses of waste it can produce: grass, wood chips, straw, tree cuttings, soil – its endless, and bulky!
While Site Solutions can take care of garden waste removal for you, we also wanted to share our ‘Top Tips’ on how to safely and easily dispose of your garden waste:
1. Grab the right tools
First, assess the work you need to do. Then, our advice is to make note of the biggest job, and tackle this area first!
But invest in the right tools to help save time:
- Garden gloves
- Dustpan and brush
- Weed killer
- Spades and hand trowels
- Lawn mower
2. Compost your garden waste
During life in lockdown, more homes turned to eco-friendly measures to limit waste. Composting is a great way to manage garden waste.
3. Recycle or reuse it
Not everything in your garden will be recyclable or compostable. Stay organised by separating your waste into: recyclable waste, reusable waste, or as a last resort, landfill.
- Green waste: grass, weeds, twigs, leaves
- General mixed waste: plastics, plant pots, garden furniture
- Inert waste: soil, bricks
4. Ask the experts
We’ll safely dispose of a range of garden waste, including grass, wood chips and straw. And in some cases, we can even get a local Man And Van team out to you on the same day to help you clear your garden or outdoor space.
Simply book your garden waste collection service and let us do the rest.
