Waste and Recycling Services 

Our WASTE AND RECYCLING CENTRES at Waterloo, Winsel, Manorowen, St David's, Hermon and Crane Cross are open on the winter timetable. If you wish to take waste and recycling to one of the centres, please follow instructions on our Waste & Recycling Centre page 

Our HOUSEHOLD WASTE AND RECYCLING COLLECTIONS are currently continuing as normal. You can find out more about collection arrangements for your property by typing your postcode into the Search for Your Bin Day box on our Waste and Recycling page or logging on to your My Account

Please help our collection crews by minimising the amount of household waste you create. With pressure on services please avoid doing any big clear outs at home or undertaking any DIY or garden projects which are likely to generate large amounts of waste.

Please do not burn household waste at home. This creates air pollution that could harm people nearby who may already have breathing difficulties due to COVID-19. There is also the danger that fires could get out of control. Fire services around the country are reporting an increase in callouts due to garden fires.

Remember to recycle as much you can by following guidance and by condensing it down as much as possible.
