Online bookings available at recycling centres

Cardiff’s recycling centres are to re-open for the disposal of limited items, but for safety reasons, residents will have to book a timed appointment.

Bessemer Close Recycling Centre will re-open next Tuesday, 26 May, followed by Lamby Way Recycling Centre on Sunday, 31 May 2020.

An online booking system has been set up and anyone that needs to visit a recycling centre will have to make an appointment. The online booking system will be available for the public to use from 12.30pm on Friday 22 May.

The only items that can be brought to the recycling centres for now are cardboard, wood, garden waste, scrap metal, small electrical items and hard plastic.

To help residents dispose of larger items the council’s bulky waste collection service is also being reinstated from Monday, 1 June.

Full details of the new process and procedures can be seen on the Cardiff Council website –
