RESIDENTS in Ferryside are being urged to clean out their cupboards and sheds.
A waste and tyre amnesty is being held in the village car park on Saturday, March 16 between 8am and 10.30am.
The council’s waste and recycling section has teamed up with Tidy Towns to reduce fly-tipping and encourage people to recycle.
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/lorry tyres).
However, paint, garden chemicals, car batteries, gas bottles, asbestos, construction and trade waste will not be accepted.
Executive Board Member for Street Scene Cllr Colin Evans said: “We hope the amnesty will encourage people to do the right thing and dispose of their rubbish in a responsible manner. As much of the waste as possible will be recycled.”
Tidy Towns is a Welsh Government-funded initiative delivered in partnership by Carmarthenshire County Council and Keep Wales Tidy.
