The third pile can be made up of garden waste such as vines, branches, cuttings, logs, tree stump and timber. The latter should be up to a maximum number of 12 pieces and must be neatly stacked. If you have more than one tree stump, each should have a maximum allowed weight of 30 kilograms and a maximum diameter of 15 centimeters.
