5 Smart Ways to Deal with Garden Rubbish

An all-day’s worth of stress and work pressure deserve a relaxing break, and there’s nothing more satisfying than a flourishing garden. Those blooming daisies and orchids, as well as the lush bed of grasses, are products of all the labour and resources you’ve poured in to turn your garden into a small oasis in the middle of a busy city. However, all garden owners share a common problem: dealing with garden rubbish.

Most people think it’s all about throwing out branches and rotten organic waste into green council bins and waiting for collection day, but there’s more than just that. Which is why Paul’s Rubbish Removal provides you with five smart ways to deal with your garden rubbish.

Identify and Sort Your Rubbish

Effective waste management and garden rubbish removal start with proper identification of your waste. The following are examples of garden and organic rubbish:

  • Stumps and Logs
  • Lopped or Fallen Branches
  • Leaves, Twigs, Weeds, and dead plants
  • Clippings, prunings, and other cuttings
  • Gravel, soil, bricks, grass turf
  • Old Structures
  • Broken Tools, and all forms of backyard waste

You can reduce the risk of harm by properly identifying the rubbish to be removed, especially when dealing with sharp objects.

Next is to sort them out. Instead of collecting them all together and dumping the lot in green bins, sorting them out can help reduce the clutter during removal and secure all harmful waste that can inflict harm to you or your family. 

Moreover, you’ll also get the chance to separate usable items while sorting and save them for recycling. Sorting out your waste will likewise reduce the work of rubbish removalists and will also ensure that less rubbish will end up in landfills.

Recycle your Rubbish

We are living in turbulent times where all of us are encouraged to recycle as much waste as we can to help curb the rising global temperature; and it all begins on little things, particularly in a family unit. 

Take a look at your sorted recyclable rubbish and think about different ways you can upcycle them. Maybe an old mat in the broken gazebo can be reused as garage wipes, or you can turn plastic bottles into vertical gardens. Release your creativity and cleverness and learn how to squeeze the remaining value out of every recyclable through do-it-yourself projects.


You’ve dealt with all the sorting and now have plans for your recyclables. The next things to consider are that not all the remaining rubbish can fit in green council bins and that you can still turn your dead plants into fertilizers by composting them. Including your vegetable peelings, add your small organic garden waste into a bog-standard compost bin. Do not include dairy, eggs, meat, and cooked food since they will attract rodents. Rats are the last ones you want to be in your lush garden.

By maintaining a balance of mushy green waste and a soaking material such as pieces of cardboard waste, you will eventually turn your organic waste into a healthy compost, which you can utilise to growing more leafy plants and blooming flowers.

Sell or Donate Reusable Trash

While composting and recycling are among the smart ways to reduce garden rubbish, you can also be rewarded with a few bucks or emotional gratitude in removing rubbish by selling or donating your reusables. 

If you have overgrown flowers and is thinking about propagating them via cutting and marcotting, you can consider selling out the stems to be planted. Not only will you get rid of unwanted stems, but you also get value for your plants. In addition, before throwing out your old garden tools and chairs, you should consider selling them off first. While doing so, you will not only get rid of them effectively, you also earn a few cash.

It’s always a good idea to sell your old items, yet donating them to neighbours and charities is just as great. Your old plant pots, chairs, garden mats, and growing stems can go a long way. Furthermore, your donations make a contribution to the global initiative on recycling, and this can help increase awareness on the effects of waste disposal on landfills to the environment. As much as possible, divert as much rubbish from landfills.

Hire Removal Services

In most cases, our garden rubbish cannot be eliminated via upcycling and dumping, especially for large logs and stubborn stumps. Which is why hiring professional removalists rather than depending on skip bins is a smart decision. While there are plenty of rubbish removal services in Sydney to choose from, not all of them value your money as much as the environment like Paul’s Rubbish Removal.

With our vast network on composting, recycling, and disposal facilities, we ensure you that your organic waste will be in good hands and will go a long way.
