Cardiff Council is offering a one-off collection of Christmas trees

While there will be no changes to recycling and waste collection days over Christmas, Cardiff Council is arranging one-off collections of Christmas trees across the first two weeks of January.

Residents are asked to place their trees on street and not to cut them up or put them in the green wheelie bins or white reusable sacks. These one-off collections are for Christmas trees only, and no other garden waste will be collected as part of this service.

A Christmas tree drop-off zone will also be provided at Heath Park on January 8th and 9th between 10am and 4pm.

The Christmas tree kerbside collections from city wards will be on the following days:

  • January 4th: Fairwater, St Fagans, Ely and Caerau
  • January 5th: Grangetown, Canton and Riverside
  • January 6th: Butetown, Adamsdown, Splott and Plasnewydd
  • January 7th: Pontprennau, Pentwyn and Penylan
  • January 11th: Creigiau, Pentyrch, Radyr, Whitchurch and Heath West
  • January 12th: Llandaff, Llandaff North, Gabalfa, Cathays and Heath East
  • January 13th: Rumney, Llanrumney, Trowbridge and Old St Mellons
  • January 14th: Lisvane, Llanishen, Rhiwbina and Cyncoed 

With the exception of bank holidays, the recycling centres at Bessemer Close and Lamby Way will remain open during the winter, so recycling and garden waste can also be brought to these facilities.
