It is important to have an expert approach on how we dispose, compose or recycle our garden rubbish and waste in order to remain all time confident that the garden is not only green at all times, but also healthy.
We all agree that effective disposal of garden rubbish and wastes is necessary. Being equipped with knowledge of the best ways to do the garden rubbish removal will make the disposing task mush easier. Below are the best ways to make your garden waste and rubbish removal;
Food wastes can be of benefit in a garden if used as compost instead of discarding it. Food wastes include organic materials like onion peels, fruit rind and even shredded paper. These items are enclosed in a tube for decomposition. The decomposition takes some few days, after which they are added to the soil that we use in gardening to give nutrients that is necessary for the plant quality and growth. This garden rubbish removal method is a form of recycling if you are a vegetable and fruit farmer. Adding up crushed eggshells to the compost is also of benefit in reducing the infestation of pests that may affect your plants, example; Snails and slugs on vegetables.
Often, many people overlook the pet’s capacity as being a good waste disposer. Food scraps and vegetable peels can be retained to be used as food for small animals like rabbits and hamsters. The large meat bones will always be received by the dogs. Leftover food can be used to feed livestock, if you have of any. Do not forget animals like pigs are indiscriminate in their diet and can have whatever that they are handed over to feed on. If you do not keep livestock or any kind of animals, look around your neighbor who rears animals and consider selling or giving whatever waste is consumable.
Open burning solid waste reduces its volume, thus decreasing the size of the dumpsite. Open burning is among the widely and most used methods for managing waste. However, it releases
poisonous to the atmosphere directly. The toxic gas has a lot of negative results to the environment and harmful to both animals and humans; it’s thus a controversial disposal method that most environmentalists don’t advocate for.
Landfilling and Dumps;
Dumps and landfills are used in storing garden wastes beneath the soil. Waste material remnants in most cases are not disposable even during the gasification, pyrolysis, and incineration processes. Instead, they are transported to dumps and landfills, where they are buried beneath the soil. Thereafter, the leachate is well taken care of to prevent it from coming into the atmosphere and posing a threat.
Mulching helps conserve moisture during the dry season. Thus, swigs and branches and weeds you pullout from your garden can be used for mulching purposes on your kitchen garden or flowers. If you have a wood chirper that’s much better because you just need to cut the waste into smaller particles than you can use on your plants.
