A new recycling service will be launched this Autumn across Anglesey. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The new service provides residents on Anglesey with more capacity to recycle their waste. Information packs have now been received by Householders across the island and two additional drop-in surgeries have been organised. One in Amlwch and a further one in Beaumaris. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The new recycling service is scheduled to begin in October when residents will begin receiving their new orange box. Residents will be able to start recycling using the new system as soon as their box arrives. While households received an information pack last week the drop-in surgeries proved very popular, so two more have been organised. The first is in Beaumaris Leisure Centre on the 28th September and the second in Amlwch Library on the 29th September, both between 4-7pm. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

“The surgeries proved really popular with lots of people attending to ask about all aspects of the new service and make sure they knew what new items could be recycled and which box to put them in. We were pleased that so many residents are keen to use the new system and are pleased to have the opportunity to recycle many more items, particularly more plastic. Lots of residents were also pleased that the green waste collection service is continuing throughout the year,” said Bethan Jones, Senior Waste Promotions Officer. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The new surgeries will be held late afternoon and early evening. “We want to provide an opportunity for anyone who was not able to attend a day time surgery, but would still like to meet with our promotional team to discuss the new service to come to a drop-in surgery. Each surgery will run from 4pm to 7pm and we are looking forward to meeting people,” said Elin Owen, Principal Waste Management Officer. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

In addition to the information packs and drop in surgeries the waste management promotional team will be out and about across the island visiting homes and helping residents to get used to the new service once it begins. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
