Dear Isle of Anglesey Council,

Please can you tell me how our recycling waste is processed, plastic especially. Is it sent abroad for other countries to deal with? What are you doing to recycle plastic? Does any of it end up in landfill?

Yours faithfully,

Sally Cumberland

Dear Madam,

 

I refer to your Freedom of Information request dated the 4^th August,
2018.

 

Please find below the Authority’s response to your request:-

 

Question:-

 

Please can you tell me how our recycling waste is processed, plastic
especially.  Is it sent abroad for other countries to deal with?  What are
you doing to recycle plastic?  Does any of it end up in landfill?

 

Answer:-

 

Plastics are sent to approved recycling processors within the UK and are
recycled.  Anglesey does not send any waste to landfill therefore no
plastic waste would end up in landfill.

 

If you are dissatisfied with any aspect of this response to your request
for information and/or the decision made to withhold information, you may
ask for an internal review.  Please address your correspondence to the
Customer Care Officer, Legal Services, Council Offices, Llangefni, Ynys
Môn, LL77 7TW (e-mail: [1][email address]).

 

If you are not content with the outcome of an internal review you have the
right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner, Wycliffe House,
Water Lane, Wilmslow SK9 5AF.  Please note that the Information
Commissioner is likely to expect internal review procedures to have been
exhausted before beginning his investigation.

 

Yours faithfully,
