Gearing up for Get it Out


Get It Out for Cardiff, is now in its seventh year, helping students to clear out their rubbish at the end of the academic year. The aim is to re-use and recycle as much of it as possible

So if you are a resident of Cathays, Roath and Gabalfa you will have extra rubbish and recycling collections on three Saturdays in June and July:

-Sat 18th June
-Sat 25th June
-Sat 2nd July

For a comprehensive list of items that can be recycled in your green bag collections see www.cardiff.gov.uk/recycling


If you have any items that can be re-used by charities, there are collection points in Cardiff University, UWIC, Liberty Living and Victoria Hall student halls.

If you don't live in halls, please bring them to the Green Zone in the main reception area of Cardiff Students Union or keep an eye out for the Raise and Give (RAG) Milk Float - they're coming to Cathays and Roath over the weekend of 11th & 12th June to collect your items!

Here's a list of the items we are collecting for re-use this year

-British Heart Foundation: Small electrical items such as kettles, toasters, printers, mobile phones, irons etc

-Fareshare: In date, un-opened foods (not fresh) eg. tins, packets etc

-Barnardos: Clothes, belts, shoes and bags. No duvets though please.

-Media Bank: Books including textbooks, DVDs, CDs and tapes

-Kitchen bric-a-brac such as utensils and cutlery is being collected for Raise And Give (RAG) for resale at the Union this September.

Any items stored over the summer are being kept at Cardiff Self Storage who have kindly supported GIOFC 2011 by supplying a storage container.

Look out for the Green Zones across the halls and unions to donate your unwanted items
