Changes to bin collection in Cardiff County Council areas starting Monday.

Weekly Recycling and Waste collection starts Monday 30 March
Collections will be on the normal day for your area.

If you use bins
- All residents who have a black wheelie bin must put their food waste and hygiene waste (nappies / medical waste etc) into the black bin for collection. Do not use your food caddy.

If you use bags - All residents in areas that do not use black wheelie bins must put hygiene waste (nappies / medical waste etc) in their red-striped bags. Food waste should continue to go into your food caddy to stop animals and birds scattering food waste across streets.


Recycling collections will continue as normal and recycling bags should be put out weekly at the same time alongside other waste.

Please continue to recycle as normal, rinse out recycling and put the correct recyclables in your green recycling bags.



Garden waste - Collections will be cancelled from Monday 23 March until further notice


More info here
Cardiff Council - https://www.cardiff.gov.uk/ENG/Your-Council/Strategies-plans-and-policies/Emergency-Planning-and-Resilience/coronavirus-information/Pages/default.aspx

So much for saving the planet then. Hopefully our tiny black bins will cope. And no garden waste collections just as the grass needs cutting. Ima dump all my grass in the taff.

We’re really struggling with the tiny black bin already. When a family of 4 are home all of the time, you are naturally going to produce more waste....

Don’t see the problem here tbh.
Yes I have a tiny black bin, but currently they only collect it once a fortnight.
Green bin is massive but empty as I haven’t cut the grass since 2018.
They’re still going to collect the green recycling bags
Food waste? Ok, I’ll just put the little bag in the black bin.

To be honest, now they're collecting it every week it should be ok, but it grates to put food waste in the black bin these days.

More concerned about the green bin, I don't have a team of Japanese gardeners to tend my lawn & can easily fill the green bin over a fortnight when the grass really starts growing.

You've let your bush grow have you TH?

Weird, when I read this yesterday I was under the impression that black bins were going to be collected every week. I suppose I need to brush up on my reading skills.

Oof, has it already been posted? Been weirdly busy & unable to keep up with the coronavirus thread.

Yeah Trav posted it yesterday but it's worth having a seperate thread for it probably, for idiots like me that can't seem to read properly.

Having read the original post again it is saying that the black bins will be collected weekly. I should never have doubted myself.

You're right, as the food waste will now be in there and that can't be left for long for hygiene / pest control reasons.

As EYF says - using the food waste bin is now so engrained, it's going to feel horrible chucking it in the landfill / incinerator receptacle...

It's slightly ambiguous though.

Does this mean we put food waste straight into our black bags and then into the black wheelie bin, or still separate them into the food waste bags, and then put these in the Black wheelie bin?

Just noticed I've got two big plastic boxes of grass cuttings from last year that I couldn't be arsed taking to my wheelie bin :hehe:
I half filled my green bin last week with dead stuff from last summer and yesterday I cut the lawns front and back, the first time since last September so it’s full, I had to stand inside and squash it all down to get it all in :hehe:

My green bin is full of all sorts of shit that the last occupiers dumped in there. I mowed the lawn and sprinkled the clippings over the top hiding all the shit but the bin men were wise to my ruse. It has remained kerbside ever since. I might empty it now I've nothing better to do.

We all have now surely :thumbup:
People keep going on about what new skills they'll learn or all the jobs around they house they'll get done whilst we're in lockdown. If anything I'm busier with my work that when I have to go into the office. I'm fucked by 5pm every day!
