What Happens To Organic Waste When It's Recycled?

Posted in Waste Management by Skiphire UK on June 16th, 2015

When you decide to recycle organic waste, which can include grass-cuttings, tree branches and other forms of ‘green waste’ into your skip, you can be sure that as much of it will be recycled as possible – but when you choose to take advantage of the most reliable skip hire in Reading, what is your green waste actually turned into?

What Happens To Your Organic Waste?

Whilst many recycling processes are a mystery to many people, they aren’t really a big secret. Most recyclable material, particularly garden waste, can be turned into very useful products in only a few steps. Green waste is waste which is biodegradable and is high in nitrogen, as opposed to brown waste, which is high in carbon.

Once you have finished with the best skip hire in Reading, your skip is collected and the waste is taken to a specialist where it is allowed to decompose. This process typically takes place in giant compost heaps. This is because the heat and pressure of the heaps ensures that the waste breaks down much faster than it would have done otherwise.

Once the waste has decomposed, it is screened by the specialists. This is to ensure that the waste is fully green, and has not been contaminated by any substance that might affect the waste’s green properties. It is also tested for dangerous bacteria, such as Salmonella.

Finally, once the entire heap has been tested, it can be used to create compost.

The Uses Of Recycled Green Waste

This green waste is known as a ‘feedstock’, which can be used to condition soil and help to create a fertile and rich environment for plants and crops to grow. The addition of this waste into any natural environment can provide a renewal of necessary nutrients, which are required for plants and flowers to thrive and grow strong.

This compost is not only perfect for use in private gardens, but can also be used in public areas and garden, and commercial environments, including garden centres and farms.

Disposing Of Your Green Waste

Garden waste can typically be quite bulky, not to mention messy. Therefore, the very best way to clear out your garden waste to ensure that it is being effectively recycled is to take advantage of the best skip hire in Reading and across the country. Otherwise, your waste might require repeated trips to the tip. Tree branches, shrubs, plant roots and tangled weeds, not to mention grass shavings, can all take up a surprising amount of space.
