Other ways to dispose of garden waste
Green waste such as grass trimmings, plant cuttings, and weeds are ideal for composting alongside waste from the home such as shredded paper, cardboard, and egg shells. Composting is great for the environment and is a fantastic natural way to dispose of garden waste.
We’d like to encourage more residents to find out the benefits of composting.
Remember that you must dispose of all your rubbish responsibly. Dumping rubbish is a serious offence and those caught fly-tipping face a £400 on-the-spot fine.
