Does Your Garden Need a Clean Out? What to do with Your Garden Waste?

If you are lucky enough to have a garden, whether it is a tiny patch with enough space for a few plantings and a bit of lawn, or a large park-like space with rolling lawns and extensive shrubberies, both require some effort to keep looking good. This means there will be garden waste generated when you prune back plants, pull out weeds, mow your lawn, clip your edges to keep them neat and tidy, and sweep your paths and patios.

Autumn, besides being ‘the season of mists and mellow fruitfulness’ as the famous poem by John Keats goes, is also the season when we spend a lot of time raking and sweeping up fallen leaves. These piles of garden refuse need to be dealt with. They cannot be ignored as they take from the beauty of your garden, and also may contravene local bylaws if their disposal is not carried out responsibly.

Autumn also means that the planting and growing that happens during spring and summer slows down as the weather gets cooler and we move towards winter. You may have accumulated large piles of cuttings, pruning’s, branches, and dead leaves over the summer that need to be removed. One of the ways of dealing with your garden waste is to call in a professional waste removal company, and we at Junk Removal Wirral are on standby to remove your garden waste when you are ready.

Why is Garden Waste Clearance Important?

  • Those branches, dry leaves, twigs, and other dead plant matter which lie uncollected in your garden will start to decompose when they come into contact with water. They will start to smell bad as they break down, much to the dissatisfaction of your neighbours. If you are considering burning this type of garden waste using a bonfire, check the bylaws pertaining to your area first. Bonfires are not allowed in many built up areas because of smoke pollution and the danger of fires spreading, so this is probably not an option when you need to get rid of your garden waste. 
  • Regular garden waste removal will ensure a healthy environment in your garden and enhance the beauty of your house. There is nothing nice-looking about piles of garden trash lying around. This garden waste can also attract pests like rodents and insects which will cause damage to your plants and also get into your home.
  • One way of ensuring that your garden waste remains controlled is by recycling it into compost. You can use a compost bin, build yourself a compost heap or start a worm farm. Composting will also take care of your household food scraps and leftovers thus cutting down generally on the amount of waste you send to the landfills which is always a good thing. This compost will make excellent fertilizer which will greatly benefit your plants. If you invest in a bark chipper, you can chip all your medium sized branches and these wood chips will make mulch which you can spread around your garden beds. 
  • Not all garden waste is organic material, but may consist of building and construction waste, the remains of old trellising or a garden shed that you may have repaired or replaced during the summer. If you have bricks, concrete and stones left behind after a paving job, we at Junk Removal Wirral can collect and dispose of them for you safely. This type of junk cannot be dumped anywhere, so it is important to use a licensed waste removal company to ensure that it is disposed of responsibly.
    We remove any of your old garden furniture that you no longer have any use for and may be lying around looking unsightly. We will remove it and make sure that it is recycled where possible. 

How Does Garden Waste Impact Our Environment?

Garden waste that is composted can only have a positive impact on our environment as this compost feeds our garden soil with essential nutrients. There has been a growth in interest in gardening and especially in growing our own vegetables, so garden waste can have a positive impact if it is used as compost. 

To reduce the impact of garden waste that is not composted we need to recycle this waste responsibly. Recycling our household waste and our garden waste can have a huge environmental impact as this reduces the amount of waste sent to our landfills. 

There is a difference between waste that is composted at home on your compost heap or in your bin, and the garden waste that decomposes after being added to a landfill. The decomposition that occurs in a landfill releases methane gas which is a greenhouse gas that contributes to climate change. This is because this decomposing process in the landfill happens underground without enough oxygen being present. Composting at home does not release any dangerous gases, or offensive smells. 

Why Use Junk Removal Wirral for Your Garden Waste Removal?

We dispose of your garden waste legally with as little impact to the environment as possible. Fly-tipping not only pollutes the environment but could also lay you open to a large fine as it is illegal. The laws on fly-tipping are strictly enforced and with good reason as our environment is under threat from these illegal practices.  

We will make an appointment with you to pick up your garden waste, and if we are running late, we will let you know.  We are flexible with our times, and can help you after hours, over weekends or we even offer you a same day collection service if you require something to be removed urgently. We will load up your waste with as little disruption to you as possible, and we even clean up the area before we leave.

We offer you a professional, affordable garden waste removal service. Next time you need your garden waste, or any other type of waste, removed we would be delighted to help you.
