Green waste and garden waste may not strike as materials that require specialist modes of recycling as they are already raw materials. However, when these materials are taken to landfill, like any other waste material, greenhouse gasses, such as methane, are produced. Therefore, by disposing of correctly and diverting away from landfill boasts huge benefits for the environment.
Another important reason why it is extremely irresponsible not to recycle garden and green waste is because landfill sites also produce harmful substances such as leachate. Leachate is a liquid that if mismanaged and not taken seriously can pollute groundwater and waterways when not treated with care.
By recycling your green waste you prevent it going to landfill, which helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions and odour and leachate production. Additionally, by recycling garden waste the potential of its reusability is maximised, and specially crafted recycled compost really can be invaluable. Not only as a soil conditioner, but compost itself greatly improves overall soil structure and boost its biological activity.
Our process for recycling all green and garden is simple. Once receiving the material onto our picking floor, we meticulously sort out green waste material to ensure its segregation. From here it will be shredded into piles and sent to our partner recycler in Swindon.
From here the garden waste material will be heated to kill all weeds, seeds and other pathogens, and continually turned over a sixteen-week process. After this time, the material will be tested and sieved to remove any oversized compost items.
