Changes to Carmarthenshire bin collections over Easter
Carmarthenshire residents are being reminded that there are changes to bin collections over the Easter holidays.
From Friday, April 3 until Friday, April 10, collections will take place one day later than usual. So for example, if your collection is due on Friday it won’t be picked up until Saturday and so on.
Remember to recycle using your blue bags - it is estimated that 90 million chocolate Easter eggs are bought in the UK every year, that’s a lot of cardboard and plastic packaging!
You could also cut down on all that eggs-tra waste by making your own Easter treats such as chocolate cornflake cakes or bunny-shaped biscuits.
And if you are making a big Easter lunch for all the family, make sure you either compost your vegetable peelings or they go into your food bin along with any leftovers.
The recycling centres in Trostre (Llanelli), Wernddu (Ammanford), Nantycaws (Carmarthen) and Whitland are open as usual over the Easter period except Llangadog which is closed Good Friday, Easter Sunday and Easter Monday.
The council’s Director of Environment Christina Harrhy said: “Recycling our waste at Easter can really help us to achieve our recycling target so please recycle as much as possible and remember to use your food bins. For more information on what can be recycled in your blue bag please visit our website.”
Did you know that you can now sign up for text or email alerts on a range of council services including recycling at i-Local.
