Refuse Collection

The biggest confusion for most students is the system of rubbish collections here in Swansea. With green bins, pink bins, black bins and a kitchen caddy all collected on alternating weeks it can all be a bit hectic whilst trying to juggle University life.

Connect Swansea is an app designed by Swansea Council to make this process much easier. Simply put in the postcode of the house you're staying at and it will give you reminders for what bins go out on what day. It will also notify you of changes such as on bank holiday weeks, as well as guidance on what to put in each bin or coloured bag. Simply click the appropriate image for either an Apple or Android device and it'll take you straight to the download page for the app.
