How Your Garbage Removal Service Can Help You With Gardening

Growing a garden is a full-time job all by itself. Whether you want an ornamental garden or a vegetable garden, trimming, fertilizing, weeding, and watering will keep you busy. Gardening can generate a lot of waste in the form of pruned limbs, lawn trimmings, etc. Your garbage removal service can help you to get rid of your household trash, but you should also know that they can help you with your gardening as well.

Removing Yard Debris

While you could stuff a few twigs and a bag of lawn clippings in your regular trash dumpster, you don't want to take up too much room because you might run out of room for your other household trash. Furthermore, any yard debris you put in your household trash will simply be wasted and take up space in a landfill. If you schedule with your garbage removal service, you can arrange to have them pick up your yard debris for you. All you have to do is pile your yard debris out by the curb, and they will come by and haul it away. Some services will also schedule a big pickup with yard debris at certain times of the year. You can save yard trimmings for one of these scheduled times, or if your store of debris gets too big, you can schedule your own pickup. 

Compost

One way to make sure the plants in your yard get the nutrients they need is to recycle the nutrients in the twigs and other trimmings that you collect throughout the year. You can set up your own compost bin, but composting requires effort. You have to water the compost, turn it, and keep it contained. A compost pile or container will also generate smell. If you don't want a compost pile detracting from the looks of your yard, and/or you don't want to deal with the smell, but you do want to use compost in your yard, a trash removal service can help. When you schedule to have your yard debris picked up, a waste removal service will typically compost the waste materials so that you and others in your community can buy the compost for use in your yard. You get quality compost without the investment of time and energy.

If you are trying to garden in the city, you may not have the space or the means to deal with yard debris or composting on your own. Contact your garbage removal service to see how they can help you.
