Seven people have been fined for dumping rubbish around recycling sites in Carmarthenshire.
Cameras were placed at two locations following problems with people not using the facilities in the correct way.
Rubbish was being dumped around the recycling bins instead of inside them, and businesses which should have had trade waste arrangements in place were using the sites to dispose of their rubbish.
Cameras were placed at the recycling site at Dafen Pond car park after concerns were raised at a Dafen Forum meeting.
Three people were issued with £75 fixed penalties after being seen on CCTV depositing waste around the site and not in the bins provided.
CCTV was also placed at the recycling site adjacent to the community hall in Heol Nant-y-Felin, Llanerch.
Footage showed two people illicitly tipping at the site and both were issued with £75 fines.
Environmental enforcement officers patrolling the Cross Hands Co-operative car park also issued two people with £75 fixed penalties for not disposing of their rubbish correctly at the site.
Executive board member for environmental enforcement Cllr Jim Jones said: “In addition to a comprehensive kerbside recycling service, Carmarthenshire County Council provides recycling bring banks to assist residents in recycling more of their waste.
“Unfortunately not all residents use these facilities in the correct manner, they are being abused by individuals and often businesses who should have trade waste arrangements in place.
“Due to an increased amount of waste being left around the recycling bins, the Environmental Enforcement team recently deployed CCTV at two council recycling sites, and patrolled at others.
“We would like to remind people that any waste placed around the bins is fly tipping, and this will not be tolerated.”
