While there’s nothing stopping you, it is a waste of a useful resource.
In Staffordshire, most of the waste which can’t be re-used or recycled is sent to one of our two energy recovery plants where it gets burnt to generate electricity.
While this is a much better option than landfill, it is more important to recycle as much material as possible to keep valuable resources in circulation for longer.
Also, garden waste contains a lot of moisture. When it’s burned it reduces the efficiency of energy generation from the plant and less electricity is produced.
