Waste enforcement

We keep our beautiful Island ‘clean and green’ via a range of street cleansing services, however we also enforce environmental legislation.

Anglesey is a beautiful island and in fact, nearly all of its coastline area has been classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).

We endeavour to keep our beautiful Island ‘clean and green’ via a range of street cleansing services, however, some individuals are content to interfere with our work and continue to deposit their waste illegally.
We work to deter anti-social behaviour such as this and our team of Enforcement Officers investigate all manner of incidents throughout the Island such as:

  • Littering
  • Illegally depositing waste, also known as ‘Fly-tipping’ or ‘Dumping’
  • Problems with domestic waste and domestic side waste

Statute Law has been introduced to impose punishment on those who commit environmental crime and this legislation is used to issue fixed penalty notices and take legal action where necessary.

Enforcement is a last resort and education is always seen as a better option. The Waste Management Section will work with residents to provide education and guidance on how to deal with and dispose of waste responsibly. We must all take responsibility for the amount of waste we produce and be accountable as to how we dispose of it.
