What is Green Waste?

Green waste, or ‘garden waste,’ refers to organic waste that can be composted. It includes biodegradable materials like grass clippings, leaves, branches, untreated wood, and other plant-based materials often produced through gardening, landscaping, and certain agricultural practices. Unlike other types of waste, green waste is biodegradable and can be recycled into compost or mulch, providing a sustainable way to enrich soil and reduce landfill use.

When Green Waste Skip Hire Is Useful

Green waste skip hire comes in handy in lots of situations. Here are just a few examples when using your skip to get rid of your green waste is a real lifesaver:

  • Garden clean-ups: When you’re giving your garden a major tidy-up, especially after winter, you’ll end up with heaps of waste. A green waste skip can handle all of that easily.
  • Landscaping Projects: DIf you’re doing a garden makeover, whether that’s laying down new turf, pruning big trees, or setting up new garden beds, there’s going to be a lot of green waste. A skip bin keeps it all neat and out of your way.
  • Regular Garden Maintenance: Even just the usual trim and maintenance can pile up more waste than your green waste wheelie bin can handle. A skip bin means you don’t have to wait weeks to get rid of it all incrementally.
  • Commercial Sites: If you manage a commercial property or a public space, large-scale landscaping can quickly generate a huge amount of green waste that household green waste bins won’t be able to handle. Skip bins can handle the volume and make cleanup a breeze.

Basically, anytime you have more green waste than you know what to do with, skip hire can save the day and save you multiple trips to the Mugga Lane Resource Management Centre. It’s the simple, stress-free way to keep your space looking great and do right by the planet. All you have to do is put your green waste in the skip – we do the rest!

Why Disposing Of Green Waste The Right Way Is Important

Getting rid of green waste the right way is important for a few key reasons. It helps the environment by preventing green waste from going to landfill, where it can produce methane. Instead, when green waste is recycled, it’s turned into compost or mulch, which can then improve soil and help plants grow in other areas.

Not disposing of green waste correctly can also lead to pests and diseases in your garden. By handling it properly, you reduce these risks. It also helps save space in landfills, which are becoming increasingly full.  Essentially, disposing of your green waste properly is about making a positive impact on the environment and keeping our community green.

What Goes In Green Waste Skip Bins?

You can put a variety of garden waste in green waste skips. This includes grass clippings, leaves, branches, and even the plants you’re pulling out to freshen up your garden. Essentially, if it grows in your garden and you can’t use it anymore, it’s likely green waste. This doesn’t include soil, treated wood or rocks, but things like twigs, small branches, and garden vegetation are perfect. Remember that the goal is to recycle this waste into something useful, like compost or mulch, so it’s important to stick to organic materials that can break down naturally. By keeping to these guidelines, you help ensure that your green waste can be recycled effectively and you play your part in contributing to a healthier environment.

What Can’t Go In Green Waste Skips

  • Dirt, soil, and compost: Dirt and soil are not natural garden items, and most composts include soil as part of their composition. 
  • Large, bulky organics: garden greens over 2 metres and larger than 150mm in diameter
  • Paper: While paper originates from trees, it cannot be placed in green waste post-production
  • Toxic and hazardous materials, including asbestos, bricks, tiles, liquids, cleaning products, aerosol sprays, paint and thinners and chemicals
  • Metal and electrical waste like appliances, batteries, electrical cords and solar panels
  • Anything that isn’t biodegradable

How To Fill Your Green Waste Skip Bins Correctly

Filling your green waste skip bin correctly is key to making the most of it. Start by putting in the heavier, bulkier items like branches and large clippings at the bottom. Then, layers in the lighter materials, such as leaves and small twigs, on top. This method helps you fit more in by allowing the heavier items to compress the lighter ones underneath.

Try to break down larger pieces of waste where possible. Cutting up big branches or splitting thick garden clippings can save a lot of space in the bin. However, make sure not to overfill the bin. Keep the waste level at the top of the bin to ensure it can be safely transported without spilling.

Avoid putting in materials that don’t belong in the green waste bin, like plastics, metals, or any household waste. Sticking to purely organic garden waste ensures that your green waste can be recycled properly, turning it into valuable compost or mulch for future use.
