How does your garden grow - Green waste recycling in Nottinghamshire

From grass cuttings to shrubs, flowers to twigs, Nottinghamshire householders can recycle all of their garden waste at any of the 12 Recycling Centres run by Veolia (Nottinghamshire County Councils waste contractors)

Garden Waste

The past couple of weeks of glorious sunshine have either frazzled plants, or if watered well will have helped gardens across Nottinghamshire to blossom and bloom. Many residents will have found themselves heading in to their gardens more to offer some much needed tender loving care, but what do you do with the clippings, grass cutting, prunings and strimmings? Veolia are reminding everyone who lives in Nottinghamshire that there are 12 Recycling Centres across Nottinghamshire open from 8am - 8pm (until the end of September) to help you recycle all your garden waste.

Richard Allen Contract Logistics Manager for Veolia Nottinghamshire said: “We’ve enjoyed the great summer weather and this combined with the occasional rain, has encouraged plant growth. All Nottinghamshire residents can take garden waste to their local Recycling Centre, even if they have a compost bin or collection at home. Recycling garden waste not only allows it to be turned into compost and help the environment, but also helps your bin to stay cleaner. In summer large quantities of grass clippings in your general waste bin can go soggy and smelly and may stick in the bottom of the bin, especially if it is in direct sunlight.”
