Co-mingled Recycling

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



Recycling Bags and Containers

*Please only order if absolutely essential*

As council offices are currently closed due to Covid-19, residents can order replacement reusable recycling bags or containers for delivery. Simply complete our online order form to request. We will aim to deliver within 14 days.

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 October 2020 and then Penarth, Sully and surrounding areas during 2021. 


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

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.
