Here at waste management HQ, we are excited to announce that the new and improved recycling centre at Lamby Way is officially open!
The new £1.2m recycling centre at Lamby Way is now the biggest in the capital city, with space to allow eight times as many cars to use the site at any one time than were able to before.
The new Lamby Way site has 20 different waste containers, which can collect a host of different products for recycling including new materials; hard plastic, carpets, tyres and UpVC windows.
This means it will be easier than ever before to recycle more than ever before!
Cllr Michael Michael, Cabinet Member for Clean Streets, Recycling and Environment, said: “This facility has been designed so that the public can separate as many products as possible for recycling and that’s important because more and more of us are trying to do what we can to help the planet.”
If you have never used a recycling centre before, there are a huge variety of things that can be recycled in Cardiff that are not suitable to recycle in the green bag collections. So if you are throwing out lightbulbs, scrap metal or electrical (amongst many more items), be sure to pay a visit. You can find out more about Cardiff’s recycling centres here.
