Isle of Anglesey County Council acting chief waste management officer, Jonathan Eastwood said: “We have extended the food waste collection service to an additional 8,000 properties to add to the 24,700 householders receiving the service”.

The waste is sent to a composting facility at Penhesgyn and is mixed with garden waste collected from green bins and household waste recycling centres.

This mix is then turned into compost for use in gardens. The compost process is fully scrutinised to strict PAS 100 standards which guarantees a quality soil enhancer is produced.

Isle of Anglesey County Council’s portfolio holder with responsibility for Waste and Recycling, councillor Hefin Wyn Thomas, said: “I am pleased that we can give back the soil improver to the gardeners of Anglesey.

“Our recycling efforts are dependent on householders sorting their waste at home and using the red and blue boxes, the food waste caddies and green garden bin, we thank them for their support.”
