Garden waste - Current service
The Garden Waste Future Service Provision Report is anticipated to be considered at Executive in September.
Garden waste is taken to a composting site where it is shredded and put into large, long heaps. The waste is turned regularly to improve oxygen content, distribute heat to regulate the temperature and to distribute moisture.
The whole process takes in the region of sixteen weeks to produce a product which can then be screened to remove any contaminants (such as plastic) before use. It can then be used as a soil conditioner.
Please select your area to find out how garden waste is currently collected in your area:
