Household Waste Recycling Centres

There are two Household Waste Recycling Centres in Cardiff. The centres are open for longer hours during the summer time and shorter hours during the winter.

The change of opening hours will occur on the first Monday after the clocks change to mark British Summer Time and Winter Time.
