Garden waste

Disposing of garden waste into a landfill leads to the production of methane, a powerful greenhouse gas.

Usually garden waste collected by your council is taken to a centralised composting site where it is made into a soil conditioner, making this an easy and environmentally friendly method.

Waste from gardening includes grass cuttings, hedge prunings, twigs, leaves and seasonal garden fruit. (Not fruit scraps from the kitchen, or animal bedding.)

Some councils provide a home collection service for garden waste  and there will usually be a fee for this.

Or you can take it to your local household waste and recycling centre (HWRC)
