LIKE most people, you probably put out your blue bags for recycling, but what about your old electricals?
Did you know a typical toaster contains enough plastic to make 76 yoghurt pots and enough steel to make 25 food cans?
So don’t leave your old electrical appliances to gather dust in the cupboard or throw them in the bin where they will just end up in landfill.
Recycle them instead at any of the county’s waste recycling centres at Trostre (Llanelli); Wernddu (Ammanford); Nantycaws (Carmarthen); Llangadog and Whitland.
Small electrical items can also be taken along to any of the 10 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) banks across Carmarthenshire. To find your nearest visit www.carmarthenshire.gov.uk/recycling or call Carmarthenshire Direct on 01267 234567.
