Lisvane Top Recycler in Cardiff

It was announced yesterday that Lisvane recycles the most rubbish in the Cardiff area. According to figures from waste collection between April and October of this year 65.68% of Lisvane’s refuse is recyclable waste. The figures were revealed at County Hall in Atlantic Wharf, in a meeting held by the Environmental Scrutiny Committee which consists of members of the Cardiff Council.

However, the figures also reveal that Lisvane came top in how much rubbish produced overall. So, though the area may be the best recycler in terms of the percentage of total waste, the village leaves a higher volume of waste for collection than any other part of Cardiff.
