How garden waste removal in Harrogate works

Get a free quote for garden waste removal in Harrogate based on the types and amount of green waste, where and when you want it collected. Then book a removal date and time if you’re happy with the price. Bag up all your green waste like grass and hedge cuttings.

One of our purple vans will come to your garden at the agreed time and a couple of our professional team will load your garden waste into the van. They’ll lift and carry everything to save you the hassle, but they’re not gardeners so won’t mow your lawn or trim your bushes.

They’re licensed waste carriers and will then transport it to a nearby waste transfer station in North Yorkshire. The garden waste will be sorted and sent for responsible disposal. Any old garden furniture and fencing may be sent for recycling or reuse depending on its condition. Old wooden outdoor chairs may be treated and recycled with other wood. 

Most green waste should go to a composting plant. These work like your compost bin at home but on a bigger scale. Grass, leaves, and other green waste are added to compost piles that reach around 60°C. They’re turned regularly to speed up the composting and the results are used for agricultural and other uses.
