Garden Waste Bags 

Your garden waste must be placed in an official garden waste bag. Green waste that is contained in any other container will not be collected.


When filling your bag please exercise common sense as how full / heavy to fill it. If you struggle to lift it, so will our crews.


Bags can be purchased from the Dock Offices, The Alps Depot, either Barry, Llantwit Major, Cowbridge or Penarth libraries and West House, Penarth. 


Reusable Bags Cost: £2.00 each
