Garden waste and its treatment
Gardening involves several activities such as -
• Lawn mowing
• Preparing flower beds
• Trimming bushes
• Cutting extra branches of trees
• Fertilising the soil
• Keeping insects at bay
The green waste extracted from these gardening tasks can be treated in two possible ways. The first being composting and using it as a natural fertiliser for the garden and the second disposing them off with the help of professional removalists. It isn't possible to compost in your yard if you have less space. The best option is to dispose them in the safest way where you could hire skip bins and hire removalists to get rid of them.
Problems to face with green waste accumulation
Green waste if accumulated in your garden, it can cause several problems to you as well as the surroundings. The common problems are -
• Production of harmful gases - Green waste, when accumulated in a single place for a longer period, can rot to create harmful greenhouse gases like Methane. The gas is damaging to the environment as well as you and your family members.
• Breeding ground for pests - Pests look out for warm areas to breed and the areas where there is an accumulation of waste that isn't attended to, one would notice pests such as mosquitoes, cockroaches, etc. multiplying with each passing day. It is problematic for your garden as well as your family where these pests are known to spread diseases that can be at times fatal for you.
How is the green waste treated?
The professional removalists are known to be experts in disposing such wastes in the best way possible. The governing bodies of a particular area have designated dumps in the town or the city for professionals to dump the waste. These dumps ensure that the waste is free from harmful elements like metal scraps, broken glass, plastic, etc. and then use the waste for mass recycling and composting. The composted green waste is often given off to agricultural lands to help them with natural fertilisers for proper growth of crops.
