Cardiff waste collections set to change again

Weekly kerbside collections for recyclables and food waste will return to normal service from June 1.

Residents are being asked to begin using their brown kerbside food caddies again from this date, and to make sure all their recyclables go into their green bags for collection.

Waste collected in the black bin or red striped bags will now go back to being collected once every fortnight and residents are reminded that any side waste will not be collected.

Green garden waste, bulky collections and the glass bottle and jar trial, however, all remain suspended until further notice.

Cllr Michael Michael, Cabinet Member for Clean Streets, Environment and Recycling, said: “Firstly I would like to thank our residents for working with us since lockdown began. They’ve been fantastic and adapted to the new collection regime, spreading the news in their communities about the changes.

“We have always said that we would seek to return to normal service arrangements as soon as we could, and we are now ready to begin doing that.

“I understand that there may be some concern that the complete service we offered before the outbreak isn’t quite ready to return yet, but I ask everyone to bear with us. We are working on plans to restore all our services as soon as we can including our Household Waste Recycling Centres, green garden kerbside collections and bulky waste collections.

“I am delighted though, that we can begin recycling again. I know it has concerned many residents and I want to thank them all for their patience.”

Residents living in the 14,000 homes that are part of the glass bottle and jar pilot scheme are asked to continue to put their bottles and jars in their green bags, rather than their blue caddy until further notice.

All recyclables collected in the green bags will now be recycled. All food waste, which must now be presented for collection in the brown food caddies, will be processed at an Anaerobic Digestion Plant to make green electricity and compost.

“We realise that residents will be disappointed that we cannot provide a kerbside green garden waste collection at the moment, but this is why we provided the one-off green garden waste collections during weekends in May. We are working on a booking system which will allow us to open our HWRCs as soon as it is safe to do so. Residents will have the option of taking garden waste to the HWRCs once we have this up and running.”
