The types of waste that can be brought to Cardiff’s Lamby Way and Bessemer Close recycling centres is changing on Monday, June 22.

Residents will now be able to bring large electrical items, white goods, batteries, clothes, tyres, paint and several other items that were accepted before the COVID-19 Pandemic began.

Non-recyclable such as Polystyrene, shrinkwrap, mirrors and blinds can also be brought to the recycling centres, but have to be brought loose and put in specific skip.

Green-bag-recyclable waste and general waste, however, will not be accepted and anyone who brings these to a recycling centre will have to take their bags home to be picked up by the kerbside collection.

The full list of what can now be brought to the recycling centres, how you can book your vehicle in for an appointment and the new specific van-booking system that will be available at Bessemer Close Recycling Centre are all available here.

Residents are reminded that if trade waste is found in any of the one-off checks by council staff, their vehicle will be refused entry to the site and enforcement action could be taken.
