Refuse and Recycling in Cathays and Cardiff
Many students will be thinking about having a bit of a clean-up in their student accommodation in Cardiff after the Christmas festivities, and we're here to make it easier for you! We thought a quick reminder about waste and recycling may be helpful. It can be confusing trying to remember which colour bag goes out on which day, so here we go:
- White bags - food waste (to be put in the green bins)
- Green bins - composting waste
- Black bins - non-recyclable waste
- Green bags - recyclable waste
Composting waste (green bins) and Non-recyclable waste (black bins) are collected in Cathays every Wednesday. Green recycling bags are collected every other week.
Check out your rubbish collection date on Cardiff County Council’s website, for students whose accommodation is in a different area of Cardiff.
