County set to get even more green
CARMARTHENSHIRE is set to get greener with the unveiling of 12 new recycling sites across the county.
The new sites have been provided by Carmarthenshire Council and has been part- funded by the European Regional Development Fund through the Welsh Government.
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.
It forms part of the South West Wales Materials Efficiency project with Pembrokeshire Council.
Executive board member for street scene Colin Evans said: "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."
The sites are at Bro Ryan in Glanamman, Whitland Cricket Club, Llandeilo RFC, Llangain Primary School, Park Hall in Carmarthen, Pantyffynnon Social Clubin Ammanford, Llys y Drindod, Morfa, Llanelli, St David's Close, Llanelli, Llangynog (near the old school), Shoreline Caravan Park, Burry Port, Gorsfach, Dafen and Salem Road, Felinfoel. Last year, the council recycled 54 per cent of its rubbish, exceeding the 52 per cent target, but the authority must now reach 70 per cent by 2025.
