Learn more about Garden Clearance in London
In London, the amount of organic waste generated from gardens increases in the suburbs, however there is still a fair amount generated in more built-up areas, especially those housing complexes with individual front gardens or shared greens. Leaves, twigs, grass cuttings and fallen branches are among the most common materials collected from garden clearances, and this organic waste can provide a nutrient rich resource for the soil, supporting new growth and used as a soil improver in agriculture and landscaping.
The other most common waste type that is collected from garden clearance is ‘inert’ or heavy waste such as hardcore, gravel, subsoil, sand, and clay. This is produced from landscaping the garden by hand or machine, or if there are building works taking place such as conservatory and extension building or shed installation. This type of garden waste removal can be labour intensive due to the weight of the waste materials and may require a heavy waste skip if there are more than several sacks to remove.
Apart from green waste and heavy ground waste, almost every other type of waste material can end up in the garden, from general litter such as food wrappers to scrap metal from cars and bikes. Because of the way that organic green waste breaks down, it is important to segregate this waste from other types of rubbish, and most borough councils in London offer a garden waste subscription service for around £65 per year for residents to collect trimmings from overgrown garden clearance.
For most people, the local authority garden clearances are not the most economical option if they are not producing large amounts of green waste on a regular basis. Many people undertake garden maintenance only once or twice a year and paying for an annual garden waste subscription does not make sense for them. Some councils provide the option of neighbouring residents sharing the cost of the garden waste bin; however, this could also prove impractical under many circumstances, especially within the local authority limitations for what can be accepted.
