Clampdown on fly-tipping in Carmarthenshire

Fly-tipping Action Wales is making a fresh appeal for people in Carmarthenshire to think twice before getting rid of waste from their homes, in an early attempt to clamp down on fly-tipping over the festive season.
The call from the Welsh Government-funded partnership of more than 50 partner agencies comes as latest fly-capture figures* show the annual clean-up cost totalled £2.2 million last year (01 April 2010 – end March 2011). According to the official figures, released by Welsh Government, 4,941 cases of fly-tipping were reported during Christmas and New Year** across Wales.
With household budgets expected to be stretched this Christmas, the partnership is calling on people to make way for Christmas gifts in their homes by getting rid of unwanted goods, such as toys or electrical equipment, responsibly. Over the Christmas and New Year period, fly-tipping levels often rise and the partnership recommends using recycling services as much as possible.
