Can I put all my garden waste in the bin?


Anything green that grows in the garden with a couple of exceptions. Nature slipped up a bit when she designed bamboo and flax / Cabbage tree leaves. They do not break down anywhere near as readily as most waste and they do a great deal of damage to mulching machines. So sorry, but no bamboo, flax or cabbage tree leaves. And no branches in excess of 100mm diameter, again because they take too long to break down.

Why can’t I just put the garden waste out with my household rubbish?


You can. But it won’t be recycled and you’re limited with space. And you’re contributing to the landfill problem. Please view our
