Recycling and Waste

We offer residents a variety of waste and recycling services from kerbside waste and recycling collections to recycling centres.


From 14 October 2019 residents in the rural Vale will need to separate their recyclable items into new containers, and collection days are changing in some other areas. 


The same change will be introduced to the Barry area in Spring 2020 and then Penarth, Sully and surrounding areas from Autumn 2020.

Dogs Are Clever Campaign

We all know dogs are clever, for hundreds of years dogs have been used as working animals, trained to carryout a number of tasks including Sheep herding and even sniffer dogs to detect bombs and drugs. But one thing we are yet to be able to train dogs to do is pick up after themselves, so that is where you, the caring owners/dog walkers come in.
