Refuse, recycling and bulky item collections

Kerbside Collections

ALL recycling and black bag/bin kerbside collections are currently operating as normal, including green waste.

  • Dry Mixed recycling – Weekly
  • Food Waste – Weekly
  • Nappy collections – Weekly
  • Green waste - Weekly
  • Black bag/wheelie bins - Fortnightly

In the event of staff illness and to effectively manage staff resources during this time there may be some disruption to service.  If the service is disrupted at these times please be patient and we will endeavour to rearrange collections when conditions improve. 

Please DON’T put ANY wipes (cleaning or personal) or tissues in to your recycling bags, as these CAN’T be recycled. These should be placed inside your black bag/bin waste. 

Disposing of waste if you contract Coronavirus

If a resident is suffering from Coronavirus, please dispose of your waste in the following way:

  • Please be reminded that tissues, kitchen roll or toilet paper used to blow nose etc should be disposed of in your BLACK BAGS only.

  • Put used tissues and disposable cleaning cloths in to a black bag(s).

  • Then put the bag into a second bag, tie it securely and keep separate from other waste. Wait 72 hours before putting it in to your outside bin/out for collection.

  • DO NOT place these items in your recycling bags as they cannot be recycled and could also expose Council staff undertaking collections to the virus.

Recycling Bags and Food Waste Bin Requests 

The Council will continue to deliver recycling bags to ALL the distribution points that are open. This includes a number of local corner shops/post offices - you can view the full distribution point list here (subject to them being open).

If you are unable to collect recycling bags from a distribution point, you can now order bags online for delivery. This service is subject to change and under constant review. 

  • Please Note: The ordering of recycling bags via the call centre remains temporarily suspended.

  •  Purple bags for registered customers can continue to be made online, as normal.

  • Food waste bins can continue to be ordered online, as normal.

Residents can book their Bulky Waste Collections online.

The Shed shops in Llantrisant and Treherbert are now OPEN - please follow guidelines in place and maintain social distancing at all times.

SORT Sites

The Council’s Community SORT sites will no longer be serviced. Residents are therefore advised to use kerbside collections as much as possible

Trade Waste Customers
