Garden Waste and Christmas trees collection update – Friday, January 15



Following our work to remove recycling and garden waste we want to advise residents that there is still a backlog of garden waste bins and Christmas trees which we have been unable to clear. 


This means we will have to extend garden waste and tree collections across Saturday, Monday and Tuesday.


Our intention is to collect in these areas over these days:


  • Saturday, January 16- Canton, Llandaff, Llandaff North, Velindre, Cyncoed, Pentwyn and Plasnewydd.
  • Monday, January 18 - Pontprennau, Old St Mellons, Trowbridge and Llanrumney.
  • Tuesday, January 19 - Rhiwbina, Llanishen and Lisvane.


The service has worked extremely hard to catch up where possible. All other waste streams are being collected to schedule. Unfortunately, due to staff being off ill with COVID and the large amount of Christmas waste this year, we have been unable to clear all garden waste as quickly as we would have liked. We apologise to residents for the inconvenience and thank them for their continued patience.


Please leave your uncollected garden waste and Christmas trees on street and the cleansing teams will remove them as soon as they can. 


Enforcement will not take place around waste presentation during this period where areas are still to be collected. 


Thank you for reading.
