Anglesey provides residents with a weekly kerbside-sort collection service for food and dry recycling, with residents presenting recycling in: a 38-litre lidded red box for paper, card and textiles (in a plastic bag); a 55-litre blue box for plastic bottles and pots, mixed cans and clean foil items; a 55-litre orange box for glass bottles and jars and cardboard; and a 23-litre brown food waste caddy and a 7-litre kitchen caddy.
The council also operates a fortnightly garden waste service, with residents entitled to a 240-litre green wheeled bin. In addition, a nappy collection service for children under the age of four is provided to council tax-paying households. Bulky household waste items can be collected for a charge of £27 for up to four items.
From October 2016, the council began collecting residual waste once every three weeks, from 240-litre black wheeled bins.
The council runs two household waste recycling centres.
