Garden Waste

Garden Waste

North-West Recycling Centre provides a depot to manage green waste in a responsible and sustainable manner, for commercial clients as well as for the general public. 

Environmental Issues

A large amount of waste that goes to landfill is garden cuttings. This represents a wasted resource. In landfill, garden cuttings break down and release methane, a potent greenhouse gas, while producing liquid waste known as leachate that can impact on the environment.

Recycling Method

If you have a green-lidded garden organics bin (selected urban areas), you can place the following in your garden organics bin:
Grass clippings, cut flowers, leaves, garden prunings, weeds, and branches (maximum diameter 10cm, maximum length 40cm)
