If you are planning to re-landscape your garden, then you need to know how to safely remove garden waste. Whether you are planning to landscape because your garden desperately needs a clear-out or it’s just time to spruce the place up, it’s never a bad choice! 

You know what damage plastics can do to the environment, but green waste can also contribute to the problem. It might sound like a sustainable waste item, but it can damage the environment, and it can be dangerous to wildlife as well. Green waste is plant-based, organic garden waste or organic rubbish. That includes clippings and leaves, branches and mulch, and flowers and twigs. It might not sound harmful, but when these items decompose they produce nitrogen. So, it’s important that we all do our part and dispose of these waste items properly. 

How to Make The Cleaning Process Simple 

If you are planning on doing major work in your garden, getting rid of the waste efficiently and affordably is important. So, here’s some advice on how to do just that. 

  1.     Separate Materials

Not all of your garden waste is easy to recycle. The garden waste you can recycle includes leaves, weeds, grass, and small twigs. But bricks, plastic bags, soil, plant pots, hard branches, and garden furniture are classed as mixed general waste. So, by separating your waste materials, you can efficiently recycle your green waste and reduce the cost of mixed general waste disposal. Professional rubbish removal services often offer garden waste removal, so if you have done the hard work of separating the items from the outset, you will be guaranteed a quick and efficient removal service. 

  1.     Reduce Bulk

Rubbish removal companies typically base their prices on the volume of rubbish. What matters in the cost is how much space the waste eats up (however, this does depend on the exact type of rubbish you are throwing out as some items may incur additional costs). The more volume you have, the higher the fee. So, beat the big costs by breaking things down as much as possible. If you have big branches, grab a saw or use heavy items to break them down. When it comes to grass cuttings and leaves, you might want to bag them to reduce the volume, but also to make loading the items simpler. You may want to reach out to your Sydney rubbish removal company and ask whether items should be bagged or not. It’s best to stick to their rules to get the best possible quote. 

  1.     Compost

You don’t have to get rid of everything, if your new landscaping includes beautiful plants and flowers, then you might want to keep some of that garden waste to use as compost. You can create a compost pile or use a bin for all that garden waste moving forward and use it to enrich your garden. 

What To Use Your Green Council Bin For 

The council will provide you with a green bin, which is for your garden or green waste. You can use your green council bin for garden clippings and mulch, as well as leaves, small branches or twigs, flowers, and weeds. This is the easiest way to get rid of that waste, with the council emptying green bins once every two weeks, which is great for maintaining your new landscaped garden once the job is done. But it’s not big enough to cope with a full clear-out. You can also create a compost heap or reuse your green waste as organic mulch. 

Consider Hiring a Rubbish Removal Company 

When your green bin isn’t sufficient, you need a helpful solution. It might be tempting to hire a ute and haul your rubbish away on your own, but why bother spending money to work more when you can enlist a rubbish removal company who will handle everything from start to finish? The experts can load your green waste into their trucks and haul it away to the recycling centre or transfer station, depending on what it is. They are happy to haul bricks, remove soil, or spirit all of your branches, leaves, and flowers away.
