Answer: Soft green material tends to jam in chipper/shredders because most are designed to handle woody debris. Instead, try placing your garden leftovers in a metal trash can and then shredding it with a weed wacker. Weed whackers are available in electric and gas powered models. Another method for reducing the bulk of fresh trimmings from a perennial garden is to allow them to wilt in the sun for a few days before composting them, thought this tends to reduce some of the qualities that make for good compost.
