Green Waste Removal

If you’re a fan of working in your garden, chances are your green bin is often full well before the green waste collection date. The Foothills Gardening Service offers a green waste collection service, to help keep your garden clear of waste.

Green waste disposal is perfect for removing organic garden matter, including grass clippings, branches, garden pruning offcuts, leaves, weeds and hedge trimmings.

What is Green Waste?

Appropriate Green Waste For Removal

Green waste disposal is perfect for excess organic garden matter, like:

  • Weeds
  • Leaves
  • Flowers
  • Branches
  • Woodchips
  • Grass clippings
  • Garden Pruning
  • Hedge trimmings

Waste That Isn’t Green & Removable

However, not everything that you’re removing from your garden is suitable for green waste collection. For example, the below is not classified as green waste:

  • Glass
  • Metal
  • Plastic plant pots
  • Rocks and bricks
  • Stones and gravel
  • Construction rubble

If you need to dispose of inorganic material, we can help with that as well. The Foothills Garden Maintenance can also collect and remove your hard rubbish If you’re not sure which service you need (or suspect that you might need both) contact us to talk through your rubbish removal.

What happens to green waste after it has been collected?

We endeavour to make all of our services as ecologically sustainable as possible. This is also true for our hard rubbish collection. We ensure that as little matter ends up in landfill as possible. Wherever possible, we re-use your green waste to turn it into rich, useful compost. For more information, visit the Albury City green waste education page here.

  1. Collection: We come to you and check to see that the waste being disposed of is 100 percent green matter.
  2. Transport: We carry the green waste to a processing facility.
  3. Sorting: The sorting facility removes inorganic materials from the green waste during the Sorting Process.
  4. Cleaning: Over the next three days, the facility heats the green waste to 60°C. This begins the process of turning waste into compost, and kills any dangerous pollutants.
  5. Composting:The facility workers then lay out the green waste in an Aeration Shed for the next 42 days. It is kept in a warm, humid climate, and turned into a rich compost with nutritive and natural products.
  6. Donation: Now having been turned into rich compost, the green waste finishes the cycle spread onto farms and vegetable gardens. Nutrients return to the soil and help to grow new plants and trees.
