Green waste (grass clippings, hedge trimmings, leaves)
Try composting at home. Turn your garden waste and lawn clippings into compost and make your garden healthy and lush. It's easy and convenient, and doesn’t need to take up much space. You can find more information on this website or from Mitre 10 (external link) .
Or check out your local transfer station for green waste disposal options (charges may apply) or check out the Yellow Pages for green waste collectors in your area. South Taranaki District Council has a kerbside green waste collection service. Click here (external link) for more details.
