THE CEDAR RECYCLING PLANT
Who Are We?
The Cedar Recycling Plant is a FREE service offered to everybody that trims a cedar hedge.
A nicely trimmed cedar hedge offers a picturesque alternative to standard fencing or other methods of defining property edges and boundaries. The problem with cedar hedges is that they are alive and continually growing. Most are kept in check by yearly pruning. However then you are stuck with a bundle of cedar leaves and boughs . The trimmings do not compost well, which is a big problem for public and private composting programs. Fresh green cedar is also not good for mulch due to the chemical makeup of cedar trees.
The only alternative is to recycle your cedar trimmings.
WHAT CAN BE RECYCLED?
Cedar hedge and tree trimmings are recycled. The leaves are what is actually recycled. The wood can not be recycled. Therefore only boughs with a maximum diameter of 4cm can be recycled. More wood than effects the quality of our recycled products.
Only fresh cedar leaves can be recycled. Please call immediately after trimming so that pick up can be arranged. Dry, brown or old leaves and boughs can not be recycled.
Only cedar leaves can be recycled. Cedar mixed with other plant matter, gravel or other contaminents can not be recycled. Contaminents can ruin machinery and negatively effect our recycled products.
THE CEDAR RECYCLING PLANT IS DEDICATED TO HELPING THE ENVIRONMENT BY RECYCLING/REUSING CEDAR LEAVES AND BRANCHES.
