To put it in simple terms, green waste is any organic waste that is biodegradable and can be composted. This includes things like cut flowers, grass cuttings, leaves, fruit, plants and weeds, twigs and branches, or prunings. Here at Sesmas Tree Service, we are a tree company that specializes in tree care, tree service, and tree removal, but today, we wanted to let you know just how important it is to recycle any green waste you may have.
Again, green waste is anything that comes from the Earth essentially, and it doesn’t include things like large wood, large branches, soil, concrete, household waste, animal waste, flower pots and trays, or business waste. When you think of what waste is considered green waste, think of where it came from. If it came out of the ground or from any kind of fruit or vegetable, it is considered green waste.
So, now that you know what green waste is, what do you do with it?
How To Recycle Green Waste
Recycling green waste is super easy. You will want to get a green recycling bin to put everything into. You’ll want to make sure your bin has a top since you will continue to recycle your green waste until the bin is full. This type of recycling isn’t something that you’ll put at the end of your driveway each week.
Check with your local town officials to see if they will provide you with the bin or not. If not, you can easily recycle your green waste yourself! You will put all your green waste into your bin and when it’s completely full, you will have it picked up and taken to a special recycling yard that focuses on compost materials. As a local tree company, we have a network of green waste recycling connections that would be more than happy to help you.
Benefits of Recycling Green Waste
Whenever you recycle anything over putting it in your regular garbage can, it ends up going to a special waste yard where it will be reused for something else, rather than sitting in our landfill for years.
Recycling your green waste can help to improve the environment, and reduce the levels of methane in our environment. Such a small thing like recycling green waste can make a huge impact on the health and longevity of our planet.
So, are you wondering how tree service and tree care goes hand-in-hand with green waste? Your tree leaves fall each year, and your trees require tree care each year meaning, whatever Sesmas Tree Service takes off your trees can go directly into your green waste compost bin.
