Where does garden waste go next?
After your garden waste has been collected, it's taken to a processor where it gets sorted and items which don’t belong in your garden waste bin are removed. Garden waste is turned into mulch or compost used in agriculture, parks, schools and kindergartens to keep gardens healthy and looking great.
