The SDL Big Bag scheme really makes your gardening easier.

When you use SDL Garden Waste Services your gardening material is transported to a nearby large composting facility and after processing is returned to farm land that grows food for your table.
Home composting your food and garden waste is possible but be aware that branches need to be shredded and compost heaps need to be fully turned at least four times to eliminate plant disease, pathogens and weed seeds. Without mechanical assistance this process can be a lot of hard work. Small compost heaps are also rarely big enough to maintain sufficient heat so you may be spreading disease and weed seeds round your garden. Poorly composted food waste can also attract unwanted vermin.
