Recycling in a boxCo-mingled Recycling

Co-mingled recycling allows residents to place all their recycling into one container for collection

Comingled collections are currently in place for all areas except the rural Vale.


The rural Vale moved to a separated collection system in October 2019. The same change will be introduced to the Barry area in Spring 2020 and then Penarth, Sully and surrounding areas from Autumn 2020. 


Collections: Weekly


Please ensure items are placed on the kerbside (or in your communal bin area) by 7.00am on your collection day.

Blue Recycling Bags

Reusable recycling blue bags are available from the Alps in Wenvoe and all Vale libraries.


They are made from the same material as our garden waste bags, but have a concealed weight and a velcro flap that can be easily open and closed and should therefore minimise the amount of recycling that is blown across the streets during adverse weather conditions.
