(Garden) soil, sand and clay are only allowed in a limited amount in the organic waste container or on the compost heap. Consider, for example, the content of a plant pot or the soil on weeds. Larger quantities of soil can be handed in at the waste recycling point. This soil must be clean and free of grass pollen and other types of contamination such as pebbles, roots or grass.
What happens to the waste?
In most cases, clean soil can be reused immediately. Soil companies check the clean soil waste for purity and then remarket it.
