How garden waste removal in Wakefield works

Start with a free quote for garden waste removal in Wakefield for your home or business. This is tailored to the type and amount of green waste you need removing, where from, and when. If you’re happy with the price we’ll book a time and date for the collection that suits you.

Bag up your green waste ready for removal. Our team will come out in one of our purple vans and load your bags of green waste into the van. They can also lift and carry any garden furniture, fencing, and other such garden waste. They’re not gardeners, so can’t cut your grass or trim any branches.

They are licensed waste carriers though, so will then safely transport your garden waste to a nearby waste transfer station around Wakefield. All garden waste will be checked and sorted and then sent for disposal. The likes of fencing and furniture may be reused or recycled with other wood waste, depending on its type and condition.

Your green waste will likely be sent to a local composting plant. Here all the grass and hedge cuttings, plants, leaves, and twigs are added to huge compost piles. These reach temperatures of 60°C and are regularly turned to quicken the composting process. The results are then used for local agricultural purposes.
