Foliage for two millennia has been considered a useful fertiliser, which, when decomposed, provides the soil with useful mineral and organic substances, accumulated over time. Garden refuse is the best natural fertiliser without a doubt: think again.
A professional pianist, John Goodall Smith, was fined for fly-tipping after getting rid of leaves he collected on the driveway of his home in Wolverhampton by dumping them in the woodland.
According to a report, 56-year-old Smith filled three bags with garden leaves and threw them in the surrounding fields, assuming that these sweepings would not cause any harm, as they are biodegradable.
He disposed of the leaves on a roadside nearby Staffordshire, during November 2020. However, it turned out that the area was video-monitored with CCTV cameras. The unfortunate Mr Smith received a notification of a £150 fine for dumping the garden leaves, which are classified as waste ~ despite their organic origin.
‘The council told me tree leaves are controlled waste and the owner of the land has to pay to have the council come along and collect them and I thought ‘What? Garden leaves? They’re not even my leaves!’’ he complained.
Smith added that he could dump the leaves ‘over to the other side of the road’ and further suggested that penalising people does not motivate them to be decent citizens. Nevertheless, he paid the fine.
‘I was trying to do a good deed. I was believing I was taking responsibility and had done my utmost to take that responsibility and I’ve ended up falling foul of the law,’ he stressed, claiming that he didn’t think he was doing ‘anything wrong’ as he wasn’t throwing something like ‘fridge or sofa.’
Councillor Roger Lees, a cabinet member for Planning and Regulatory Services, claimed that although ‘it may eventually compost down, it does not make dumping acceptable or permissible and there is simply no excuse, so don’t do it, as we will always look to prosecute those responsible for fly-tipping and littering within South Staffordshire’.
It is believed by some in the scientific community that the gradual and natural destruction of fallen leaves creates conditions for the development of soil microflora and fauna, which, on the one hand, decomposes leaves more quickly, and on the other hand, prevents the development of organisms that are pathogenic for trees. This prevents fungal and bacterial diseases, to which urban trees are susceptible, according to arborists. Britain R.I.P. Welcome to Absurdistan where the lunatics run the governing asylum. Source
