What is allowed in the yard waste container?

In general, garden waste often consists of green waste and so a garden waste container is often referred to as the green container. You can go to this container when you are dealing with bamboo, leaves, tree trunks, tree trunks, tree stumps, grass and thatch (note: no thatch), grass clippings, park waste, pruning waste, bushes, branches and plant remains. Once we collect the container, we can then turn your green waste into compost, giving your waste a second life with the yard waste container.

Garden container or ground container?

So, as we have seen above, no soil, sand, earth, stone, wood and agricultural waste is allowed in the garden waste container. If you do have to deal with these waste streams, the soil container may be more suitable. This container is suitable for soil, clay, short cut sod and sand but beware! These soil types may not be contaminated with PFOA/PFAS, roots, gravel, wood, plastic and tree stumps. Therefore, green waste and soil waste cannot be disposed of in the same container.

Are you dealing with totally different waste streams from your garden? Then choose from the other range of containers which still consist of the bulky waste container, the construction container, the wood container and the rubble container.

What should I look for when renting a yard waste container?

When renting a container, when in doubt when choosing a size, always go for the larger size. In reality, the amount of waste is often higher than expected, resulting in a lack of space in the container. In addition, the waste in the container may only protrude 20 cm above the edge of the container, so keep this in mind as well. If this is the case, we are forced to charge a surcharge for this and at 60 cm our drivers are not even allowed to take the container anymore for safety reasons.

It is also important that you follow the guidelines for the allowed waste streams and that you have to make your own pick-up appointment for the disposal of the container. Indeed, it is nice that this way you can control the rental period yourself, but then of course you should not forget about making an appointment.
