|Yes, put it in!||No, leave it out|
Soil and rubble can be taken to your local tip (household waste recycling centre). You can also buy compost from the household waste recycling centres.
* There are special arrangements for the disposal of noxious and invasive weeds. Japanese Knotweed and Giant Hogweed are the most noxious but there are others that mustn’t go in, for example, Common Ragwort, Broadleaved Dock, Curled Leave Dock, Spear and the Spear Thistle. Contact Serco for advice if you're unsure.
