I’m sure you’ve seen the use of green bins Brisbane. If you haven’t made use of green bins yet, it is high time that you do so. I’m often surprised to see just how ignorant some people can be when it comes to improper disposal of waste – they have no idea how dangerous it can be. Many Brisbane residences especially, treat both green waste and household waste alike, which should always be avoided. Unfortunately, they are oblivious to the fact that green waste can be recycled and put to good use.

Reduce green waste in landfills

In my experience, I’ve noticed that many are unaware of the importance of separating green waste from other types of waste. As such, much of green waste ends up reaching a landfill. Green waste in landfills is forced to decompose in the absence of oxygen and this leads to the creation of greenhouse gases such as methane and a compound called leachate. Methane causes global warming and leachate contaminates waterways and groundwater.

This is something that must be avoided and thankfully, you can easily avoid this happening simply by hiring green bins in Brisbane, such as those I offer at 4 Waste Removals. When green waste is put into one of our green bins, it is collected by one of our rubbish removal experts and taken to a recycling facility rather than used as landfill. This greatly controls the production of harmful methane and leachate in the environment.

Recycle green waste to create compost

You may be wondering what happens to our green waste once you put it into one of our bins. Well, as with all green bins in Brisbane, our waste does not reach landfills – rather we take your waste to the closest recycling depot.

Green waste is 100% recyclable and is decomposed under controlled conditions in a recycling depot to create compost. This compost, which helps enrich the soil, is then sold to landscapers, horticulturists and farmers. Thus, green bins can help convert green waste into compost, which in turn can be used to cultivate healthy crops and pastures.

Better for the environment

Those that use green bins in Brisbane, not only get rid of their waste efficiently, but they are also helping the environment in a number of ways. Wouldn’t you like to do the same? Not only can you help reduce the generation of harmful methane and leachate, but you can also help create compost. Simply by using green bins, you can recycle green waste to create high-quality compost. High-quality compost improves soil grade, supports beneficial organisms in the soil and encourages healthier plants to grow. Moreover, when compost is used, synthetic fertilisers and pesticides need not be used as plants are less prone to diseases. This recycling of green waste is good for you and your soul, good for the community and good for the earth as well.
