Easter Waste and Recycling Collections

Our collection day will remain the same during Easter this year, but collection times may change so please ensure your waste is out by 6am.

Cardiff Council has confirmed that their waste collection team will work across the Easter bank holidays to ensure the collection service continues and there will be no one-day-delay to collections the week after the bank holiday.


The council asks that you continue to separate recyclable materials, just as you normally would, as they recognise that there would be no space in your black bin / red striped bags for these items if you didn’t have a recycling bag collection.

Cardiff wants to become the best recycling city in the world, so they want you to continue to use your green recycling bags to keep up good habits for when the crisis is over.

The following items can go in your green recycling bag:

     Cardboard Easter egg boxes

     Plastic packaging from Easter egg boxes

     Foil (please make sure that it is clean and scrunched up in a ball)

If you’re unsure if an item can go into your recycling bag, please check their  Recycling A-Z.

Easter Recycling Art & Crafts (added bonus in the press release!)

If you currently have your children at home with you, you may be looking for craft projects and things to do.

Lots of packaging you would normally put into your green bags could be used for these. 

     You could use toilet rolls to make  Easter bunnies and chicks

     You can turn  egg boxes into flowers

     You could save the foil from the Easter eggs to make art

There are lots of ideas on  Pinterest  and Google to get you started.
