As your garden is small I would use the lawn clippings as mulch on the borders. Shrub pruning should burn ok but perennials would be too green. An incinerator may be more bother than it's worth. How long did it take you to fill eight bags? If that is the sum total of your cutting back after the winter, I would just take the hit once or twice a year. The trick would be to cut the stuff as small as possible to get as much in a bag as you can, then leave the bags a while so they all settle down, then top them up. And use as large bags as possible unless there are rules on bag sizes!
See original post
I filled all 8 bags in a week and generally put out at least a couple every fortnight.We have to buy the bags supplied by the council and they are awful.As they are biodegradable they start to sweat as soon as anything is put in it.You can't store anything in them and I have to fill them up the night before collection.
I also have to store the waste somewhere for up to a fortnight and space is limited.
I was hoping to have a burn when I got to maybe 2 sacks worth.
