Popular BBC TV show, Money for Nothing is filming for a forthcoming series and has chosen Monmouthshire County Council’s busy household waste and recycling centre at Llanfoist near Abergavenny as one of its locations. Cameras and crew arrived on Tuesday 10th April and stayed for several days.
Wood carver and latest presenter of the show EJ Osborne saves things from being dumped and transforms them into valuable pieces, making money for people who had no idea there was cash to be made from their trash.
Monmouthshire’s cabinet member with responsibility for recycling and waste, Councillor Bryan Jones said: “Money for Nothing is a great show and a favourite with many of our residents. We’re delighted that EJ has chosen to film an episode at Llanfoist and his visit is timely because we are planning to open our very own shop at the recycling centre this summer.
“It will sell everyday items that have been saved from the skips and are ready for up-cycling. Most of the items will be sold for just a few pounds and may take a little TLC and imagination to bring them back to life.
“There is a fair bit of work to be done before the shop opens but we’ve been very excited about EJ’s visit and it will certainly inspire us all!”
