Perhaps you’ve just spent hours cleaning your garden, pruning trees or raking up huge piles of leaves; whichever it is, there’s nothing like putting in some elbow grease and creating a much nicer looking yard for yourself. The only thing that spoils it is the inevitable pile of green waste you have at the end of it all. Sure, you can go through the process of buying a Green Waste Bin from your council and having them pick it up bit by tiny bit, but that isn’t a great solution for those who need more than a small garbage bag full of rubbish removed at a time. You can also lug it all to the tip yourself, but that isn’t an easy option either. So, what can you do to get rid of the stacks of grass clippings, pruned branches and piles of leaves? Give Canberra Tree Lopping a call, of course!
What is Green Waste?
Green waste consists of all the green organic matter that you accumulate when you clean up and maintain your lawn, gardens and other landscaped areas. Green waste generally includes grass clippings, leaves, pruning waste, small branches, twigs, bark, brush, mulch and even the mess left from your last expired live Christmas Tree. In Canberra, there are a few local council areas who offer Green Waste Bins and pickup, but not all of them do, which makes the job of removing this green waste quite difficult.
How to Get Rid of Green Waste
As mentioned above, you can buy the Green Waste Bins from some local councils; however, these bins are quite small and they take weeks to be delivered, which makes them a bad choice for a large amount of waste you need removed now! You could also take it to the rubbish tip on your own, but that has its own set of problems; for example, you probably need a ute or trailer, you need to pay for each load individually and it can be quite difficult work. Some tips also don’t accept green waste or don’t have a defined green waste area, meaning you’re just adding to landfill and pollution. Another solution is to buy or hire a mulcher, but again, this is hard work, very expensive and a bit of an overkill solution if you don’t have tonnes of green waste to dispose of each year.
For most people, the best solution is to have someone like Canberra Tree Lopping come and pick up their green waste for them, which saves them time, money and prevents a sore back.
