Green Waste – What Makes The Cut

Many people might be left a little confused about what constitutes “green waste”. Well, you can definitely tell that by the title, that it does involve green materials – but that does not mean that it everything with green in it is considered part of this waste. As professionals in the industry, we want to make it clear what makes the cut when it comes to green waste.

What can be removed…

What do we collect when it comes to green waste? Here is what makes the grade and the list of collected green waste.

  • Grass clippings

  • Flowers

  • Fauna

  • Small prunings

  • Leaves

  • Branches and twigs

  • Weeds

  • Bark

What cannot be removed…

There is a fine line in ensuring what can be considered green waste and what is not. A lot of time the following items and waste get mixed into the green waste collection, but the fact they are considered part of the waste family. Avoid putting any of these in your green waste removal.

  • Rocks

  • Pebbles

  • Gardening pots

  • Timbers and woods

  • Soils and dirts

  • Gardening tools

  • Anything that contains plastic

You might be wondering what the difference is: the collected green waste is biodegradable and can be recycled and made into compost. This is the biggest difference, one that the other types of rubbish can’t do.
