There are other ways to get rid of your garden waste without making a fire/bonfire.

Most garden waste, like grass cuttings and leaves, can be recycled by composting

Composting

Composting turns waste into valuable food for your garden and can help reduce climate change. Most garden waste can be composted, as well as uncooked vegetable peelings.
