Now Cardiff has diversified its economy and become a hub for various thriving industries. The finance and professional services sector play a vital role, with numerous banks, insurance companies, and professional service firms based in the city.

In terms of waste generation, businesses in Cardiff produce various types of waste. General waste, including food waste, packaging, and non-hazardous office waste, is commonly generated.
Paper and cardboard waste are prevalent in offices, educational institutions, and retail establishments.
Types of commercial waste we collect in Cardiff
What types of commercial waste & recycling do we collect in Cardiff?
For our trade waste and commercial rubbish collections in Cardiff, we offer a range of bins tailored to meet the needs of companies and shops.
Here are the options available:
- 240-litre wheelie bin: This size is perfect for medium-sized businesses that generate a moderate amount of waste. The bin comes with wheels for easy maneuverability.
- 360-litre wheelie bin: Slightly larger than the 240-litre option, this bin is suitable for businesses that produce a bit more waste but still do not require the capacity of larger bins.
- 660-litre bin: This bin is ideal for businesses with higher waste volumes. It provides ample capacity for efficient waste disposal.
- 1100-litre bin: For businesses that generate a significant amount of waste on a regular basis, the 1100-litre bin offers a larger capacity for the effective waste management of any business in Cardiff.
- FEL bins (Front End Loaders): FEL bins are designed to accommodate even higher waste volumes. They are suitable for businesses with substantial waste generation, providing a convenient solution for waste collection.
We strive to cater to various waste generation levels and specific requirements of businesses in Cardiff, ensuring an effective waste management solution for our customers.

What happens to the waste material after collection?
Cardiff has successfully eliminated all active landfill sites and adopted a more environmentally friendly approach to waste management.
In collaboration with Viridor and four other local councils, they established the Energy Recovery Facility (ERF).
Annually, the ERF processes up to 350,000 tonnes of non-recyclable waste by incinerating it, generating enough energy to power approximately 50,000 households.
A key aspect of this facility is its commitment to environmental safety. All fumes and smoke produced during incineration undergo thorough cleaning (scrubbing) in the chimney stack before being released into the atmosphere.
This ensures that no harmful pollutants are emitted, mitigating any potential negative impact on air quality. There is now a new hazardous waste treatment facility open in the area to further prevent any waste from ending up at landfill.
Moreover, the ERF’s sustainability efforts go beyond energy generation. The remaining bottom ash from the incineration process finds a valuable purpose as aggregate material for road surfaces.
This approach results in a fully sustainable process, leaving no waste behind and actively contributing to more eco-friendly road construction.
By implementing the Energy Recovery Facility in Splott, Cardiff has demonstrated a progressive and responsible waste management strategy.
The collaborative efforts with Viridor and other local councils highlight the commitment to creating a cleaner and greener environment.
This project serves as an excellent model for other regions seeking effective waste disposal solutions while prioritising environmental protection and energy efficiency.
