• From the time that waste disposal has become a problem in this world, recycling waste from the garden turned out to be a demand to obtain a safe and clean environment. The local units of the United Kingdom have their recycling services for garden waste which supports domestic purposes. In 2002, the WRAP or Waste and Resources Action Program released a report that almost 14 percent of the household bins comprises garden waste such as twigs, hedge cuttings, branches, tree barks, homegrown fruits, grass, vegetables, leaves, flowers, and grass. These things can all make up garden waste from households.


    Using The Compost Pit


    Good thing, a significant percentage of the domestic garden waste is recyclable. In fact, this happens after the waste is placed in the trash bag. In places having a strict rule and implementation on the household collection, homeowners receive special bins provided for collecting garden waste. It is the local authorities that are responsible for providing these waste collection bins. They make sure that all household waste coming from the backyard will be directed to their recycling centers. Before composting garden waste, all waste and materials that may not be composted are removed. There is a schedule for collection to guarantee that the waste will be gathered appropriately and promptly. For those waste products that were left, they go to the compost pit.


    Composting is a lengthy process but is often accelerated through an increase in temperatures. For garden waste, it usually takes a couple of weeks to be composed. The process of composting involves the following:


    1.    The waste will be turned to obtain an adequate source of oxygen. Oxygen is essential in producing microorganisms.

    2.    Once the material has been composted, it will be followed by screening. This part is completed to double check if there are contaminants that have been included in the mixing process. It is crucial for checking if the materials are properly decomposed.

    3.    For compost materials, these must undergo grading so that standards will be met based on their purposes.


    Business Garden Waste Management


    Aside from homeowners in the UK, companies and other businesses need to understand proper garden waste disposal. The Environmental Protection Act 1990 states that anyone operating a business must take responsibility for its action when it comes to disposing waste from the backyard. Company owners and their members should guarantee that all garden waste products are properly segregated from other rubbish.


    The amount of garden waste produced in the business industry in the United Kingdom is equal to what households produce. It is important to understand about the legal responsibility of waste disposal since it is mandated by law and some guidelines must be strictly followed.


    Some pointers need to consider before an enterprise dispose of a material and when to apply rules on waste disposal. In the case of some businesses, they have to provide what they call “Waste Transfer Notes” which is proof that they comply with the rules implemented for waste management. A commercial waste management company can assist them in this service.
