Where possible, set aside small branches and prunings until your next scheduled green lid bin service, and refer to your revised collection schedule to make an informed decision on when to next mow your lawn.
If you do need to mow, grass clippings are high in nitrogen and are suitable to leave on your lawn every now and then. They can also be used as a mulch in garden beds or added to a home compost bin. When adding grass to a compost, make sure to balance it with carbon-rich material such as dried leaves, saw dust, shredded brown paper, coffee grounds and wood ash.
Excess garden organics can be dropped off at Summerhill Waste Management Centre in Wallsend. Charges apply. Summerhill Waste Management Centre is open from 7:30am–4:45pm on weekdays and 9am–2:45pm on weekends.
