Waste and tyre amnesty for Llandybie
Residents in Llandybie are being urged to have a good clear out and take advantage of a waste and tyre amnesty being held in the village.
The council’s waste and recycling section has teamed up with housing services and Tidy Towns for the amnesty which is being held on Wednesday, February 26 between 9am and 1pm at Caecoed.
Most household waste can be taken along including unwanted furniture, carpets and mattresses, electrical items such as fridge-freezers and televisions, garden waste and tyres (maximum 10 tyres per household / no tractor or lorry tyres).
However, paint, garden chemicals, car batteries, gas bottles, asbestos, construction and trade waste will not be accepted.
Residents that dispose of any waste items will also get a free bag of Merlin’s Magic Compost (while stocks last) courtesy of CWM Environmental Ltd.
Executive Board Member for Technical Services Cllr Colin Evans said: “We want to encourage people to recycle as much as possible and also reduce for fly-tipping in the county. If people don’t have their own transport it can be very difficult to dispose of larger, bulky items. I hope residents take advantage of this one-off chance to get rid of their household waste.”
Tidy Towns is a Welsh Government-funded initiative delivered in partnership by Carmarthenshire County Council and Keep Wales Tidy.
Residents may be asked for proof of address.
