How To Manage Your Waste During A Garden Makeover

If you plan to perform a garden makeover or renovation, you really only have three options to choose from when it comes to managing the waste after you are done with your project.
Its important to note that you cannot just dump green waste anywhere. You might introduce noxious plants to an environment that may destroy an ecosystem.

Option A: Hiring a Skip Bin –
Hiring a skip bin that suits your needs is the most obvious option. Depending on how big your garden job is, will determine the size bin you will want to hire. Sometimes it can be difficult to actually calculate the amount of waste you will have at the start of garden makeover. And more often than not, as you get into the job, you will discover more and more that needs to be done. This can result in you being left with more waste than your bin can handle.

By hiring a skip bin, the work you need to do becomes much easier. You can just get into the tasks at hand, dump all the green waste you have in the bin, and let the skip bin operators transport the contents of the bin to your local waste management facilities.
There are various size options available nowadays, so there will also be an option to suit your budget, amount of waste and any room restraints you may have.

Option B: Working On Your Garden Slowly –
If you cannot afford a skip bin, or accessibility is restricted, then another option available to you is to just renovate your garden slowly.
Work on your garden section by section to prevent generating too much green waste that you cannot handle or dispose of. This will allow you to do small jobs, that you can fit into a possibly busy schedule, and will also allow you to dispose of the waste in the normal trash or rubbish collection.

Option C: Composting –
The third option is one that is sometimes overlooked, or just not considered because of lack of knowledge or space issues. That option is composting. Since you will be producing green waste, why not just recycle it on your own garden or yard? The old plants and trimmings that you need to dispose are excellent compost material.

Composting is not hard, and if done correctly it will not omit any bad odor either. Firstly, you should take out any poisonous plants and dispose of in the trash. You would then feed the good plant’s small branches through a shredder to reduce the size.
You can then combine the cuttings, lawn clippings, in s designated area and water them regularly to keep damp. You will also need to toss them weekly with a garden fork. This will give the pile oxygen and will also prevent odor.
You can of course add fruit and vegetable scraps, eggshells, shredded newspaper. Basically, anything that is organic. Do not add meat, fats, diseased plant material or dairy products.

The introduction of worms will speed the process up and provide you with an amazing worm poo that your garden will just love!
