What is the best way to recycle garden waste?

The truth is there is no right or wrong answer. There are several ways to recycle garden waste, and the best option will depend on the type and quantity of waste you have, as well as your personal preferences and available resources. Here are a few options to consider:

  1. Composting. Composting is a popular and effective way to recycle garden waste. You can compost most types of garden waste, including leaves, grass clippings, and vegetable scraps. Composting involves piling the waste in a designated area or container and letting it decompose over time, eventually turning into nutrient-rich soil. Composting can be done in a variety of ways, including using a compost bin, a compost tumbler, or a simple pile on the ground.
  2. Mulching. Another way to recycle garden waste is by using it as mulch. Mulch helps to retain moisture in the soil, suppress weed growth, and regulate soil temperature. You can use shredded leaves, grass clippings, and other garden waste as mulch around your plants and garden beds.
  3. Lawn clippings. If you have a lawn, you can recycle grass clippings by leaving them on the lawn after mowing. The clippings will decompose and return nutrients to the soil.
  4. Recycling facilities. If you have large amounts of garden waste simply contact our customer services team. To arrange skip hire, BOOK DIRECT HERE or deliver to our purpose built waste disposal and materials recycling facility, near Carlisle.
