Delyn MP David Hanson has teamed up with Mold Town Councillor Geoff Collett to welcome the progress made by Flintshire in encouraging brown garden waste recycling.

The brown bin is for the collection of garden waste –including leaves, bark, hedge clippings, twigs, small branches, grass cuttings, plants, windfall and Christmas trees. All the garden waste collected as a result of the brown bin scheme, is composted at Flintshire County Council’s windrow site in Greenfield; the end product is a soil conditioner. The facility processes nearly 16,000 tons of green waste a year in a natural process.
David Hanson said:
“I am pleased that the Brown Bin scheme has been so successful in Mold and across the whole of Flintshire.
“Recycling is an important part of a sustainable lifestyle and it is good to see Flintshire County Council have acted, through the Brown Bin scheme, to make it easier for people to recycle garden waste.
“It is clear that even the smallest adjustments to our everyday lives could make a real difference to our local communities.”
