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.
