Remember folks, the recycling facilities at Dafen Pond car park and Dafen Park are for specific recyclables only. Fixed penalty notices for £75 are regularly issued by Environmental Enforcement Officers to people caught using the site to dump general waste.
Carmarthenshire County Council have today reported the most recent offences have resulted in two men being fined for dumping bags containing carpets and computer-related items at the Dafen pond site.
Officers will continue to carry out patrols and use CCTV cameras to monitor recycling sites.
Executive Board Member for Environmental and Public Protection Cllr Jim Jones said: “These sites are important facilities for the local community but all kinds of rubbish are being left. This kind of behavior will not be tolerated and anyone caught will be fined.”
