A large amount of waste that goes to landfill is garden cuttings. This represents a wasted resource. In landfill, garden cuttings break down and release methane, a potent greenhouse gas, while producing liquid waste known as leachate that can impact on the environment.

What are Garden Cuttings?
Garden cuttings include leaves, grass clippings, branches, hay, flowers, sawdust, woodchips and bark.
Composting garden cuttings at home, or using council collection services can:
- reduce greenhouse gas emissions from landfill
- reduce leachate production in landfills
The use of compost in gardening, landscaping, horticulture and agriculture can:
- reduce the amount of watering required
- reduce the amount of synthetic fertilisers needed
- improve the structure, fertility and health of soils
- help to repair soils suffering from poor management
See Planet Ark's Reusing and Recycling Garden Cuttings Factsheet (download from Resources below) for further information about what you can do.
