9 Tips for Dealing with Sydney Garden Waste

If you have a garden, the time will come when you have to deal with the waste that your garden inevitably produces. And those grass clippings, branches, soil, and other bits and pieces aren’t going to handle themselves. At Sydney City Rubbish, we provide exceptional Sydney garden waste removal services. Through our work, we’ve come up with the ten best tips on dealing with your garden waste.

Create a compost heap

A compost heap is invaluable for those whose gardens produce plenty of waste. Composting is wonderful for the environment, particularly because you can then use the finished product in your garden once again, closing the loop so to speak.

You can create a compost heap anywhere in your backyard, though it’s advisable to purchase or find a contained compost bin, especially if you plan on composting food scraps along with garden waste (which you should). This will help to keep creepy crawlies and rodents away from the decaying matter, which is an important consideration.

Ensure you have a green waste bin

A green waste bin should be easily obtainable from your local government and is perfect for all manner of garden waste. If you’re not sure about what you can actually put in this bin, never fear; you should receive a flyer that explains everything. Otherwise, it’s quite easy to jump online and take a look at the council waste website, which will also explain it.

Utilising a green waste bin will save plenty of hassle because you won’t need to worry about trying to transport your green waste to a recycling facility. If you have too much waste to fit in the bin, you can dispose of it bit by bit, each bin cycle. Alternatively, if you do not want to wait, you can hire a professional Sydney rubbish removal company like Sydney City Rubbish.

Plan your garden maintenance

If you have a large garden, it’s important to plan how you’ll carry out your garden maintenance. Consider which areas of your garden will produce the most waste… will it be your lawn? Your hedges? Or perhaps a large tree. Once you’ve worked that out, have a think about where the waste will be going. Do you need to hire a Sydney rubbish removal company, or will your garden waste fit into your existing compost?

Considering all of this and planning your gardening operation will help ensure that your garden waste is gone, quickly. That means it won’t be sitting in your garden for a long period of time, creating an eyesore and attracting bugs and rodents.

Think about safety

Safety is an essential consideration for dealing with garden waste, particularly when using tools and other equipment. The utmost care must be taken when cutting branches, mowing the lawn and performing other garden maintenance tasks, as there are hazards present.

When shifting large amounts of garden waste, it’s also important to take care to avoid the risk of laceration, along with trip and fall injuries. The benefit of hiring a Sydney rubbish removal company for your garden waste is that they will be much more experienced in safe practices, and equipped with the right protective equipment.

Deal with it regularly

Regular attention to your garden waste is the best way to keep it under control. This will allow you to keep piles of garden waste minimal, and is an excellent strategy if you only have the one green bin, or minimal space in/on your compost. It also means you can mete out your time more effectively, so you don’t have to spend entire days maintaining your garden.

Reduce where possible

We should all be making efforts to reduce the amount of waste that we produce. Therefore, if you are able to reduce the amount of waste that your garden is producing, that will inevitably be a win for you. Do this by choosing plants that require less maintenance and drop fewer leaves or branches, and opt for slow-growing grasses where possible.

Make sure you have the tools for the job

Gardening requires some tools, and even the most basic of gardens take a certain kind of equipment to maintain. When you’re chopping up smaller branches, secateurs will suffice. But for larger branches, you’ll probably need a saw or loppers. Gloves are always a necessity, and you’ll probably need a trowel, spade, rake, and more.

If you hire someone to maintain your garden and remove your garden waste, they’ll be equipped with the right tools for the job, making your life easier. They’ll be able to chop and remove larger branches, so you don’t have to.

Do your research

There are many resources that you can tap into, to get reliable advice for dealing with garden waste. For instance, many rubbish removal companies have a blog or knowledge centre that offers up handy tips and tricks to make waste management much easier. At Sydney City Rubbish, we have a blog page with hundreds of articles on waste management. You can take a look at the best Sydney rubbish removal blog here.
