We’ve just bought a garden shredder. The idea is that the hedge cuttings will go in the dalek bin, along with grass cuttings.
Now, in the video advertising this, a good looking German lady uses it (looking cheerful) and then sits in her garden, drinking wine and admiring it (looking cheerful). When I use it, I swear under my breath, snap at the children to keep away and repeatedly jam it. I think this is probably more about me than about the shredder.
It does produce a nice lot of shredded waste though. Rather satisfying to see.
