Waste and Recycling Toolkit
Sorting out waste and recycling within your student house can be challenging. To make it easier, here is a step-by-step guide and toolkit to help you and your housemates recycle more and waste less.
Step 1: Find out which day of the week your waste and recycling is collected.
Visit Cardiff Council’s Collection Day page and enter your property’s address to find your collection day.
Step 2: Once you know your collection day, download your Collection Day Calendar and Sort It Poster from the list below.
The poster shows you how to sort your waste and recycling into the correct container, and the calendar shows you all your collection days for the next year!
TIP: You can print and display these in your home’s communal area so everyone will know what to do.

Step 4: Share this step-by-step guide with your housemates, so they have the right tools and know what to do!
