Cardiff tenants face new fines if they don’t follow rubbish rules

What a waste of time

Cardiff Council have issued an update on their waste collection guidelines detailing new fines that will face residents who fail to follow them. To those who’ve walked through Cathays on bin day, the reasoning seems obvious.

It's time for a game of "Landfill or Cathays?"

Is it time for a game of “Landfill or Cathays?”?

Those who put their rubbish out on the wrong day, leave bins or bags on the pavement outside of the day’s collection window or use the wrong types of bags for waste or recycling will now be doing so at risk of punishment.

The council issued a statement today which was reported through the Cardiff SU’s website, and detailed that the fine for breach of their new rules would be a fixed penalty notice of £100.
