Co-mingled Recycling

Co-mingled recycling allows residents to place paper, glass, cans, cardboard, plastic, clean foil, empty aerosols and cartons in the same container.


Waste and Recycling Collections

There are NO changes to waste and recycling collection days this Bank Holiday.

Please place out for collection before 7.00am on your normal collection day.


Collections: Weekly


Please ensure items are placed on the kerbside (or in your communal bin area) by 7.00am on your collection day.


Your co-mingled recycling should be placed in a council-issued blue recycling bag. 


Please note: If you live in Barry or the rural Vale, you will have Separated Recycling Collections.
