The future of waste management in Australia must be based on higher levels of resource recovery, ruse, and recycling, and this extends to organic or green waste. There is no reason why green waste should ever go to landfill when there are much better options available.
Organic matter in landfill decomposes to generate methane, which is a strong greenhouse gas. Much more environmentally friendly is the use of organic material to enhance gardens, and to that end it can be converted into mulch and compost.
By separating garden waste and foods from other rubbish, it can be composted. Composting relies on microorganism activity which decomposes organic materials. Microbial activity generates heat that releases large amounts of energy and encourages the growth of fungi. Mature compost is then beneficial to gardens.
While green waste and food scraps constitute up to half of the average household waste, there is no better way to be environmentally responsible than to invest in residential compost bins, worm farms, and to properly dispose of green garden waste so that it is beneficial and stays out of landfill, where it will contribute to greenhouse gas emissions.
Council rubbish removal services in Frenchs Forest and elsewhere collect the green-lidded garden waste bin every two weeks. These can be filled with small branches, plants and flowers, weeds, leaves, grass clippings, and prunings from trees and shrubs.
Not only does the local council offer a green organic waste kerbside collection service to residents throughout Frenchs Forest and elsewhere on Sydney’s North Shore; all residents are invited to call us at AA Adonis Rubbish Removals for same-day, to your door rubbish removal in Frenchs Forest – including that of green waste. We load and take away garden waste and dispose of it thoughtfully on your behalf – so you need not wait for council collections or worry about the sheer volume of organic waste you need to remove.
