#1. Sort The Various Types Of Green Garbage.
Not all garden trash can be recycled, but the garbage that is much less expensive to dispose of can be. Green garbage that can be recycled is made up of grass, weeds, leaves, and extremely small twigs. On the other side, mixed common garbage includes branches, plastic bags, garden furniture, dirt, bricks, and plant pots. When compared to normal mixed waste, “green waste” typically costs at least half as much to dispose of per tonne. Therefore, it is very sensible if you can divide your trash into two piles.
Make sure to mention what kind of waste you have when calling a skip rental or man and van junk removal service when making your reservation since, if you have the time and space to separate it, they will charge you less for the “green waste.”
#2. Garden Waste Should Be As Lightweight As Possible.
Businesses that remove waste bill customers based on volume, or how much room your waste occupies. Our recommendation is to minimise the amount of space your waste occupies by chopping up large items like branches and piling heavy items on top to force them down. The higher the volume, the higher the price. Bagging leaves and grass cuttings wherever possible also helps to reduce volume and makes loading easier.
#3. Decrease The Man & Van Clearance Company’s Labour Costs
Businesses that offer man and a van clearance services bill customers based on the quantity and duration of the rubbish they remove. Place your garden waste as close as you can to the area where their van is likely to be parked to help them load more quickly. Also, even though plastic cannot be included in green garbage, loading will go much more quickly if the material is stored in garden bags or bin liners. The removal team will simply empty the bags’ contents into the truck before giving the bags back to you for recycling.
#4. When Requesting A Skip, Use The Biggest Size Possible
It makes sense to get the biggest skip you can, presuming you have a lot of garden waste because bigger skips are less expensive per cubic metre or cubic yard of garbage than smaller ones. Remember, too, that the majority of councils won’t let you put a skip bigger than 8 cubic yards on a public road. Therefore, despite the cost savings of a larger skip, the municipality may prevent you from ordering anything bigger than 8 yards unless you have the area off-road.
#5. You Can Sell The Logs
Despite the fact that smokeless fuel is required in many regions of the nation, many households still maintain fireplaces or stoves that burn wood. Therefore, it is worthwhile to ask the tree surgeons to chop the tree into logs and set them at the front of your property if you have had a tree cropped or cut down. Normally, a modest sign that reads “Logs for sale” or “Please help yourself” will cause the logs to vanish within days!
#6. Recycle Your Waste
Yes, it takes some work, and you may need to spend a few dollars to build an enclosure for your compost, but making your own compost is definitely the most economical and environmentally friendly way to get rid of yard trash.
Using garden waste like leaves, grass clippings, and bark, you can create your own compost for nothing. If grass cuttings are allowed to decay on the grass’s surface, they also supply nutrients.
#7. Bonfires And Incinerators
Garden trash, such as weeds, lawn clippings, leaves, twigs, and hedge trimmings, burns effectively in incinerators. Moreover, because they burn the garbage at a considerably higher temperature and with less smoke than bonfires, they are a safer alternative.
While it’s not our preferred method, many people burn their yard waste on bonfires. It is acceptable to have a bonfire in your garden as long as it doesn’t cause a disturbance. Check to see if there are any time limits set by your local government on when you can start a bonfire. Make sure the garden waste is as dry as ways to minimise bonfire smoke.
