From today, this, according to our local council, is classed as landfill and MUST NOT be recycled.
Just enter something like 07000 000000 - usually online forms will only validate very basic things like whether the number starts 07, that sort of thing. And is obvious to a human eye that its not a real number
The wisdom or otherwise of the Council's ill conceived waste collection is contained here:
Until it's cooked it's still garden waste, rather like old cut flowers
Question for @WelHatCouncil, are basil plants classed as garden waste or kitchen waste under your new rubbish rules? https://t.co/r4lgI8WsPW pic.twitter.com/Hz6z4CmoVc— bpnewsletter (@bpnewsletter) April 4, 2017

Ah, so that solves our 'cut onion' dilemma! ;0)
5.3 The Council receives funding from Hertfordshire County Council (HCC) based on its waste performance e.g. waste reduction, recycling and diversion from landfill. This is through a financial mechanism called the Alternative Financial Model (AFM), which returns some of the savings which the county council receives from the reduction in overall waste collected from all councils in Hertfordshire. The introduction of a garden waste charge will impact upon the level of funding the council receives through the AFM.So Wel-Hat council will now get a smaller subsidy from the County Council for being environmentally unfriendly.
Does this mean that those who have paid already will get a partial refund? http://www.whtimes.co.uk/news/welwyn_hatfield_brown_bin_service_rumours_quashed_1_4961719
3.3 If the Council introduces an annual charge of £35 for the collection of garden waste, it is anticipated that a minimum of £400,000 net income per annum would accrue which will be used to offset the costs of operating this service, currently around £1.1m per annum.So, if the costs are more than the income, then those who don't opt in are nevertheless still contributing to the running costs but getting no benefit....Losers
Comingled food and garden waste from Welwyn Hatfield households was being taken to Agrivert's In-Vessel Composting Facility at South Mimms. The contract for this was arranged through the Hertfordshire Waste Partnership, so it wouldn't appear that this will change in future....Put simply, usually what happens at IVCs is the green waste is all dumped in a holding area, it's then taken to be shredded. Once shredded it's laid out to break down into compost. https://www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/media-library/documents/waste/waste-partnership-meeting-docs/hwp-annual-report-2015-16.pdf
