Your food caddies will be emptied on your next scheduled collection date. "


Change to 136 Bus Terminus in Cardiff

Change to 136 Bus Terminus in Cardiff

From Monday 25th January the 136 will start and finish at Stop GE in Greyfriars Road.  Stagecoach say that this is being introduced to improve punctuality of the 124/136 service.

The 132 appears to be unaffected thus to travel to the rail station a change from 136 to 132 (or a Cardiff Bus) at Whitchurch might be advisable.

Christmas Recycling & Refuse 2015

Refuse & Recycling Christmas 2015

The refuse & recycling will be as normal according to the Council website: Monday 28th December Collections as normal

Improvements to recycling centres 2016/17

'Improvements' to recycling centres 2016/17

As part of the Council's policy to 'improve' recycling, there will be further closures of recycling centres and a reduction in opening hours.  In addition, it will be necessary to produce evidence of residence in Cardiff.

The Weddal Road site will close when the Lamby Way site has been developed to accommodate the additional cars using the site.

The new arrangements will necessitate a round trip of just under 30 miles and mean that there are two recycling centres in South Cardiff and none in the North.  We are not sure how green this makes recycling!


The Council clearly have mastered the euphemism in describing  a diminution of service as an improvement.

Heol Goch Closure (Update)

We have received information from the Council that the closure this weekend (12th & 13th December 2015) will be as follows:

"I can update you that this weekend’s closure is planned on Saturday between 06.30am -14.00pm where speed humps and lining works will be carried out. Due to this activity being weather dependent, if the weather on Saturday is poor then a further closure will be required on Sunday between 9am – 13.00pm however we are hoping this won’t be the case."
