A new recycling site at Gorsfach has been provided thanks to a European cash injection, which has add twelve new facilities across the county.
The council’s waste and recycling section now provides a total of 180 mini recycling centres all over the county to make it as easy as possible for residents to recycle a number of materials such as glass, cans, paper, clothes and shoes.
The 12 new sites have been part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund through the Welsh Government. It forms part of the South West Wales Materials Efficiency project with Pembrokeshire County Council.
The new recycling sites are at:
• Pantyffynnon Social Club, Ammanford
• Llys y Drindod, Morfa, Llanelli
• St David’s Close, Llanelli
• Llangynog (near the old school)
• Shoreline Caravan Park, Burry Port
• Gorsfach, Dafen
• Salem Road, Felinfoel
• Bro Ryan, Glanamman
• Whitland Cricket Club
• Llandeilo RFC
• Llangain Primary School
• Park Hall, Carmarthen
Executive Board Member for Street Scene Cllr Colin Evans said: “We are continually looking to provide more recycling facilities for the public and the ERDF grant has helped us to provide an additional 12 recycling sites across the county.
“We want to make it as easy as possible for residents to recycle by providing recycling banks in their communities.
“It is important we recycle as much as we can and reduce the amount of rubbish which goes to landfill. I would like to thank householders for all their efforts and urge them to use these new recycling banks.”
Last year the council recycled around 54% of its rubbish, exceeding the 52% target, but must reach 70% by 2025. Failure to do so could result in large financial penalties.
