We have had the following message from Mattt Wkelam, Assitant Director Street Scene, Cardiff Counci regarding garden waste collections over winter,

"As winter approaches, growth naturally slows, and the tonnages available become significantly less, making operating garden waste collections very inefficient and yielding very little in terms of tonnages for composting. Indeed, garden waste collections are not a statutory service, and many Local Authorities either cease collection during the winter period and/or charge for garden waste collections.

Should you generate garden waste over the winter period, there are a number of options available to you:

  • Garden waste can be taken to your local Household Waste Recycling Centre.
  • Home composting. Leafmould makes a great soil conditioner for gardens and can be made easily using a bin liner loosely tied and pierced with a garden fork. More information on home composting and leafmould can be found on the internet.
  • As the material is not hazardous, it can be kept in the garden waste bins (or another area of the garden) and can be presented on the kerbside in March when the service resumes.

We hope that you will understand the reasons for suspension of the service and can find alternative ways for dealing with this material. We will be having a collection of Christmas Trees after the Christmas period."
