Garden waste has been appearing close to the backs of one or two gardens that back onto Park Wood.

Garden waste might seen harmless but it can become an eyesore if left to build up, grass cuttings dumped in one place can affect the delicate balance of soil fertility and thus favour plants like nettles and brambles over more sensitive woodland plants. And finally since 1990 it has been illegal to deposit waste from another site on land where no waste handling licence has been issued. Waste licences are only held by waste disposal operators like local councils and waste contractors.

Garden waste can be taken to the recycling centre, composted in your garden or Havant Council operates a green waste bag system. With the help of the borough Council and Horndean rangers we will be dealing with the immediate issue and hope that the few individuals concerned will stop causing this problem.
