How To Remove Green Waste

How To Remove Green Waste

As a waste removal specialist, there are two areas of waste that I specialise in; junk waste and green waste. Junk waste is general household waste such as that you place in your council wheelie bin, along with other things like broken furniture, appliances, electronics, white goods, mattresses etc. Green waste, on the other hand, is 100% green waste, which includes garden waste, along with organic waste such as fruit and vegetable scraps.

If you have excess green waste, and you’re are looking for an easy and affordable solution to get rid of your green waste, then I can certainly help!

4 Waste Removals we can tell you how to remove green waste the right way, and can also provide you with some affordable green waste removal solutions. So, whether you want to take on the task yourself or hire professionals such as 4 Waste Removals, you’ll find all the answers here.

DIY Green Waste Removal Options

If you want to know how to remove green waste for free, then there are a few options, namely: composting, the tip, and standard (red lid) wheelie bins.

The budget way to remove green waste is to compost it and then use it to enrich your garden’s soil. The majority of garden waste is biodegradable, which means it will break down into a compost that is rich in all the goodies that your garden will love.

The following green waste is suitable for composing:

  • Leaves and foliage
  • Grass clippings
  • Fruit and vegetable scraps

Other green waste can be composed, but a little prep work will be needed to speed up the composting process. Chop larger branches and logs into smaller pieces and wait. Composting is a slow process, but it is free and great for your garden.

Trip Tips

Another way to remove green waste from your property is to load up your boot and make multiple trips to the tip. Those with access to a van or ute will find this option much more convenient and suitable.

Standard Wheelie Bin

The last DIY green waste removal option is to utilise the standard wheelie bin for green waste removal. This option is legal, but it is not environmentally-friendly. You see, rubbish that is placed in wheelie bins is not sorted for recycling. Therefore, your green waste won’t be sent to a compost facility (like the green waste that is placed in a green lid wheelie bin). Rather, it is sent to a landfill, where it breaks down and produces dangerous carbon gasses that continue to global warning.

Professional Green Waste Removal Options

If the composting process is too long, the tip visits are too tiring, and utilising a standard wheelie bin isn’t environmentally-friendly enough for you, then your only other option is to turn to professional green waste removal option, and there are a few feasible options, including garden bags and bins and garden skip bins.

Garden Bins

Garden bins offer an environmentally-friendly wheelie bin removal service for green waste. There are various garden bins available, include the council’s green lid garden bin service and our very own garden bin service.

The difference between the service we offer and that of the councils is that our bins are more than four times the size, and are available with more convenient collection options. Both are great options; it just depends on the volume of waste and how often you need it collected.

Garden Bags

Graden bags are another good green waste removal option in Brisbane and another option that you’ll find here at 4 Waste Removals. Our garden bags offer the same volume and collection options as our garden bins. They are also the same price. The only difference is that garden bags are stationary and garden bins have wheels, so can be moved around a property.
