Advice on garden waste
If green waste collections have been suspended in your parish or community, the best solution could be home composting.
Discounted compost bins are available from Get Composting
with prices starting at £12 (plus delivery). Grass clippings can also be used as a mulch around plants to keep weeds down or composted separately in a heap with alternating thin layers of grass and cardboard. For more information, click here
. You can also find advice for beginners and experienced composters at Less Waste
, Garden Organic
or Carry on Composting
We're also encouraging people not to burn garden waste as the smoke it produces could affect people who are self-isolating.
