Why Should we Recycle Garden Waste?

People often ask themselves the question, why should we recycle kitchen and garden waste?

It is important economically to recycle all waste when possible.

However, while this is beneficial for the environment, it can also be extremely beneficial for you in saving you money.

What to Do With Garden Waste?

The best way to dispose of garden waste is through composting.

This method of garden waste recycling is both a highly efficient way to dispose of waste, while also being a useful way to create your own compost for when you need to plant more plants in future.

Composting Garden Waste

You may be wondering about how to compost garden waste.

It is actually incredibly easy and can be quite a lot of fun to do.

The first step is to create a compost heap; you can either make up your own compost heap box out of wooden planks nailed together to form a tall and sturdy box or you can order a compost heap online.

Once you have your box set up and out of the way in your garden, then the rest of it is pretty easy. Simply chuck all of your lawn trimmings, dead plants and even old and used compost in the bin.

What Can Go in Garden Waste Bins

If you are choosing to compost waste, then the question that many people are asking is what food and garden waste can go on the compost heap.

It can be a bit confusing at times trying to decide what can and cannot go in the compost bin, especially when it comes to things such as egg shells, but the best way to figure it out, is anything that can go mouldy and downgrade, can go in the compost bin.

Things like bones and eggshells cannot go in the bin because they won’t decompose.

Garden Waste Recycling

Another way to effectively recycle garden waste is to pass on any seeds, plants and garden tools that you no longer want, onto friends and family who will find them useful. If not, garden tools could even be taken to the charity shop.
