Anglesey is the top of the league for recycling
The BBC have reported that Anglesey Council has come top of a recycling league out of all the Welsh Authorities. Because of the recently introduced food waste collection service much of Anglesey’s food waste goes to make soil improver. While the increase in the amount of waste recycled over all has increased this year to 57%, the aim for WAG is for councils to be recycling 70% by 2025.
Johathan Eastwood the councils waste management officer explains that a big part of the success of the program is the ease of which the systems are implemented. It goes to show how important planning and consultation with the communities and business are in setting up collection systems.
