There are a number of different ways that you can find out when, and what bins/bags/sacks you need to put out for collection each week.
All these services are free of charge, and provided by the City of Cardiff Council to help Keep Cardiff Tidy.
You can download and print a recycling and waste collection, or search your collection dates online
‘Binfo Cardiff’ waste app
You can download a free waste app, so that you have handy recycling and waste reminders ‘on the go’. The app runs on all mobile devices that are powered by Android or Apple operating systems. The app will not work on desktop or laptop computers.
The app is available by searching ‘Binfo Cardiff’ in google playstore (Android Devices) or app store (apple devices).
Please make sure you search ‘Binfo Cardiff’ or you may download the Binfo app for another area.
You are able to set your own time reminders to put your recycling and waste out, as well as search which material goes into your green bags, food waste caddy and garden waste. Once set, you will see your reminder even if you’re not connected to the internet.
If you allow, we will also be able to send you push notifications, to let you know if your recycling and waste collections are going to be delayed e.g. during periods of poor weather.
The app is available now to download
Weekly email reminders
You can now sign up to receive free, weekly email reminders.
You will receive an email the evening before your collection is due. Your email will remind you what bins/bags/sacks you need to put out for collection by 6am the following day. The email will also show the address that you have signed up to receive reminders for.
We will also let you know about any changes to your collection day due to Bank Holidays, and will email you recycling and waste updates throughout the year e.g. Christmas recycling advice.
You can unsubscribe from the email reminder service at any time.
To sign up, enter your house number and postcode and follow the prompt ‘sign up for free weekly email reminders for this address’.
You will receive a welcome email so that you know your sign up was successful. You don’t need to do anything else.
For residents without access to smart phones, or on the go internet access, the Tidy Text service is available.
Please note, if you were a user of Tidy Text before 4th July 2016 you will need to sign up again from 15th July 2016 to continue to receive text reminders. The current service ends on 15th July 2016. If you no longer want to receive Tidy Texts, you do not have to do anything.
To sign up, text ‘TIDY’ + your house number and postcode to 60163.
To stop receiving texts, text ‘TIDY STOP’
If you move house, you will need to stop messages for your previous address, and then sign up with your new address details.
When you send the text to register for the service or to opt out, your normal text message charges will apply, but after that all text message reminders sent to your phone are free
