Waste and tyre amnesty in Llanybydder
A waste and tyre amnesty in being held in Llanybydder.
Residents are being urged to have a good clear out and take advantage of this one-off chance to to get rid of their household rubbish.
The amnesty, organised by the council’s waste and recycling section and Tidy Towns, is taking place on Wednesday, February 19 between 8am and 1pm at Llanybydder car park.
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: “The aim of the amnesty is to encourage people to recycle more and to reduce fly-tipping. If people don’t have their own transport it can be very difficult to dispose of larger, bulky items. Hopefully the event will be well supported by local residents.”
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.
