***GARDEN WASTE COLLECTIONS***

Garden waste is collected less often in the winter, on a 4 weekly basis. The amount of garden waste collected during October-December drops by 3,500T in comparison to the months of July-September.

This is despite the ‘leaf fall’ period during this time. Therefore, garden waste collection frequency reduces in November.

A winter garden waste calendar will be made available on request to C2C.

It will also be on the website www.cardiff.gov.uk/recycling

You can sign up for one of the free, weekly collection reminders and you will then automatically receive winter garden waste collection dates

· Requests for additional green bins will not be processed during the winter garden waste collection period. The Council will not provide additional green bins for storage throughout the winter

· Home composting bins are available for the subsidised price of £7 and can be collected from the waste management depot between 8.30-4pm Monday-Friday

· Excess garden waste can be taken to HWRCs free of charge
