Waste and tyre amnesty for Felinfoel, Llanelli
Residents in the Felinfoel area of Llanelli are being urged to have a clear out.
A waste and tyre amnesty is being held in Ysgol Y Felin on Tuesday, October 27 between 8am and 1pm.
Most household waste can be taken along including unwanted furniture, carpets and mattresses, electrical items such as fridge-freezers and televisions, as well as black and blue bags.
A maximum of four tyres can also be disposed of; however, tractor or lorry tyres will not be accepted.
Hazardous waste such as paint, fluorescent tubes, batteries, chemicals, gas bottles and asbestos will not be accepted along with glass, garden waste, trade waste, construction waste and agricultural waste.
Residents can pick up a free bag of Merlin’s Magic Compost (while stocks last) courtesy of CWM Environmental Ltd.
Half-price compost bins will also be on sale for just £6 instead of the usual £12.
Executive Board Member for the Environment Cllr Hazel Evans said: “I hope residents take advantage of this opportunity to dispose of any waste they may have lying around the home.
“We are holding 12 amnesties across the county and they always prove to be very popular. The aim is to reduce fly-tipping and encourage people to recycle as much as possible. They also contribute to the county’s recycling rate and help to reduce the amount of rubbish going to landfill.”
Residents are advised to please bring proof of address.
