Dunmow Waste Support Countryside Volunteers To Transform Care Home Garden

Earlier this month, Dunmow Waste Management donated an 8-yard skip to Countryside Properties for a volunteering day, where 7 of their employees attended a family-run care home ‘Millard House’ in Braintree, Essex to transform and bring back to life the beautiful garden and grounds.

The team began clearing all unwanted weeds, trimming back overgrown shrubbery and chopping down trees, with all the green waste being placed into our Dunmow Waste Management gifted skip. With all the pathways and patios jet washed, tree bark was scattered across the woodland floor, all excess soil and stone removed and pretty plants were added to bring colour, happiness and sunshine back to the garden.


Sue Wells, Administrator at Millard House thanked all, saying: “On behalf of the residents, staff and management, I would like to thank all the volunteers for their donations, as well as their hard work in helping to transform our garden. This space was previously unused, so it’s wonderful that we now have an additional area where residents can sit and enjoy the fresh air.”


At the end of the day, after all the hard work was complete, we collected the skip from Millard house and took it back to our Mid Essex Recycling centre in Chelmsford, where 1.34 tonnes green waste was recycled.

We love being a part of community projects and are very proud to have supported Countryside on this amazing achievement, well done to all those involved by making the garden refurbishment such a huge success.
