Garden waste collection (green bin) - COVID-19 frequently asked questions

There is a high likelihood that SEVERAL HOUSEHOLDS in the areas listed below will NOT receive a green garden waste collection service today. Unfortunately, it will NOT be possible to offer a catch-up service at the current time either. Please refer to the Council’s FAQs for further information and advice.

Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Several front line staff are having to self-isolate, meaning that these key workers are currently unable to carry out the full green garden waste collection service.

Unfortunately, the information regarding the actual available staff per day to deliver waste collection services is not available until on the morning of any given collection day, therefore certain householders may not receive their green garden waste collection service as per calendar, and very little notice of this decision can be provided. This is regrettable but unavoidable under the circumstances.

The green garden waste collection service has had to be suspended in some areas of Anglesey at very short notice. This difficult decision has had to me made to enable our contractor’s front line workers to focus their efforts on the more essential waste collections such as food waste, recycling, hygiene waste and non-recyclable black bin waste.

As noted, your green garden waste collection service could be suspended at any time based on daily available staffing resources. Since there are no other disposal routes for your green garden waste at the current time, the Council recommends that you hold onto this material for now on your own property. One option is to create your own home composting heap - https://walesrecycles.org.uk/recycling-knowledge/i-want-do-more/composting-home

We kindly request that you please do not put your green garden waste into your trolley box, mini food waste bin or you black bin.

Both sites are closed during this crisis in order to avoid congregation and social isolation issues. Residents must stay home apart from essential journeys and vsiting your local HWRC is not considered an essential journey.

If you choose to visit your local HWRC and leave waste outside the gates whilst it’s closed, this is classed as fly-tipping. You would be breaking the law, and are likely to receive a fine or have to attend court. Please hold onto all your own waste during this period.

The Council and its contractor is trying hard to maintain the green garden waste collection service as per waste collection calendar provided to all householders. However, there are likely to be disruptions to the green garden waste collection service on a daily basis from now on.

Please look at the Isle of Anglesey County Council website and our social media pages on a daily basis for updates.

Unfortunately, very little notice can be given. The details of the areas affected each day will be available on the Isle of Anglesey County Council website. Please ensure that you look at the website on a daily basis since staffing levels and circumstances change every day.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused and hope that you can appreciate that every effort is being done to fulfil the green garden waste collection service.

If you are scheduled for a green garden waste collection, the Council recommends you place you green bin out for collection as usual and check the Council’s website for any updates. It is hoped that any suspension to the green garden waste collection service will be confirmed by 11am on the day of the scheduled collection.
