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.

The use of compost in gardening, landscaping, horticulture and agriculture can:
