What to do with your garden waste

Get some gnome comforts by recycling your garden waste
We could all do with a little gnome comfort at the moment, and what better place to feel at home than in your garden.
If your garden is in need of spring cleaning, a subscription to your local garden waste collection service could be the perfect way to watch your waste and keep your garden looking green.
You can also compost your garden waste at home – it's the most environmentally friendly way to dispose of it. Make sure your plants and flowers are all gnome-grown by snapping up a discounted compost bin through the Surrey Environment Partnership for just £14.20. There's gnome reason not to give it a go!
Garden waste should never go in your normal rubbish bin as it's bad for the environment. Signing up to your local garden waste service to collect all your garden waste from your door, or composting it yourself at home, is the most sustainable way to get rid of leaves, grass cuttings, twigs and dead plants once you've tidied your patch. You could even share a garden waste subscription with a neighbour if you don't think you'll fill up a whole bin with your garden waste.
