It can be tricky to remember which waste types to put out on which day, so to help, the City of Cardiff Council have created some handy reminder tools for you to use.
All these services are free of charge, so please use them to help Keep Cardiff Tidy.
You can download and print a recycling and waste calendar, or search your collection dates online.
You can also subscribe to receive automatic reminders which include:
Weekly email reminders
You can now sign up to receive free, weekly email reminders – handy for smartphone users!
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.
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.
