Stuff from chop day that's no good to me like stems, big fan leaves and old used coco that cant be used again get double bagged and slung in bottom of wheelie bin on rubbish collection day for the bin man to take.

Run off gets slung down shithouse as does, bud and waste used for making concentrates, oils and butters etc. Its illegal here so i try to be careful as i can be with this typo stuff. That said its not the illegality of growing that's too much of a worry tbh.

But theirs never much waste, prolly run off creates most waste and that goes straight down drain, good or bad its how i deal with in my flat i cant take too much of a risk its not nice when it comes on top. I dont have a colt 6 shooter at hand to protect myself and property, i wish i was a rooting tooting Texan :cowby: sometimes :lol:.

Yes getting rid of things as always been a slight problem here , when we was growing in soil and coco we would sometimes put it in our garden waste recycling bags and mix it up well with my garden plants , we live by the mountain so sometimes would feed the sheep the leaves and stalks some nutrient bottles I have in the past peeled the labels off and managed to put them out with the plastic recycling , lights are a prob can’t take them to the recycling centre cos they look at everything that’s taken up there so at the mo I’ve a shed full of lights with no idea what to do with them also got fans , a bud trimmer machine, couple gallon cans of a and b , grow tent ,lots of pots and buckets and that’s just off top of my head I can think of and no idea how the hell im gonna empty out lol

Don’t buy compost from your local recycle centre, it will be full of dog shit

We have previously given tents & grow stuff away to new growers to get a start when upgrading here.
All vegetation goes in the compost bins and incorporated into the garden, (got a lot of beds) lol.
Old bulbs have always been take to local tip.
Used up old nutrients (Biobizz) on the toms this year. They've done fab, was way out of date but the plants done well.👍
Fertiliser containers, we take labels off & goes in recycling.
Run off goes on the garden plants during spring - autumn and down the loo in winter.
Carbon filter. Removed carbon & put in compost bin, cleaned up the frame , Popped in some twinkley lights , dried grasses & got a nice little feature.
So very little waste here apart from us two "wasters " 😂😂

I put my dog shit in the bin by the bus stop in the village after they've emptied it. It smells lovely on a hot day 6 days into living in there. :lol:
