Disposing off Palm Fords which have fallen off or pruned

image.jpg

I have an old Palm tree in the rented house backyard close to a neighbour’s fence. It grows long Palm fords (spiky) and falls off the neighbour’s backyard near their swimming pool. Occasionally they keep throwing it back into our backyard and over a time it has accumulated! 
How do I Cut it and dispose off through Green Organic Council cleanup or any other way?

Please advise..

Re: Disposing off Palm Fords which have fallen off or pruned

Hi @manisalem45,

 

I'd like to also welcome you to the Bunnings Workshop community. It's great to have you join us and many thanks for your question.

 

It looks like you have a reasonable quantity of palm fronds to deal with there at the moment. You might like to consider a garden shredder that is capable of not only processing standard garden material but also palm fronds. Not all shredders are able to mulch palm fronds. I can recommend either the Ryobi 2400W Crushing Shredder or the Ozito 2400W Silent Garden Shredder for the job as they are suitable for palm fronds.

 

Alternatively, you might find a pair of bypass loppers would be of assistance in cutting the fronds to a size that fits your green waste bin.

 

Please let me know if you need further assistance or had any questions.

 

Mitchell
