RESIDENTS are being reminded that there are changes to bin collections over the Easter holidays.
From Friday, March 30 until Friday, April 6, 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.
These changes also affect garden waste and trade waste customers.
Please 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! Even the foil that wraps your chocolate eggs can be recycled.
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, which is collected weekly, along with any leftovers.
The recycling centres in Trostre (Llanelli), Wernddu (Ammanford), Nantycaws (Carmarthen) and Whitland are all open as usual over the Easter period. From April 1 all recycling centres will be open from 8.30am – 7pm.
