Recycled garden waste makes for the ideal gnome

SCC_gardenwastecompostingThere’s no place like gnome in the winter, but now it’s time to head outdoors and get your garden prepped for summer. And what better way to get some gnome comforts than to recycle your garden waste and turn it into compost to help new things grow?

The best way to do it is to make some gnome grown compost. It’s easy to do, is the most environmentally friendly option and, with compost bins from just £13, it’s cheap too.

You can also get your waste collected from your gnome sweet gnome by your local council for a small fee. Residents can also take garden waste to their local community recycling centre for free.

Last year, around 7,000 tonnes of garden waste was put in rubbish bins in Surrey instead of being recycled. This is gnome joke because it’s bad for the environment and costs taxpayers’ money that could be spent elsewhere.

As well as garden waste such as twigs and grass cuttings, Surrey residents can also recycle cut flowers, fallen leaves, house plants and hedge trimmings.SCC_gardenwaste
