Future changes to recycling and bin collections

We are planning to introduce changes to your household bin collections over the next three years to increase recycling rates, cut our carbon footprint and provide a more cost-effective service.

Thanks to your fantastic efforts, we met the last Welsh Government statutory recycling target of 64% in 2019/2020 and we now need to meet Welsh Government’s 70% target by 2025. In order to do this, we need to change the way we collect your waste.

More information on the proposed changes can be found on our website along with a survey. Completing the survey will help to shape the way we deliver any changes and understand the challenges residents may face. The survey will close Wednesday 7 July.

Stay safe this bank holiday and half-term

Please remember to stay safe when out and about this bank holiday weekend and half-term holidays.

There is likely to be high numbers of visitors to Carmarthenshire and our beauty spots and beaches can get very busy. So why not go and discover a new favourite place and explore some of our hidden gems from Carmarthen Bay in the South to the Cambrian mountains in the North.

A bit of research and extra planning can make it a lot more enjoyable. Visit the Discover Carmarthenshire website for some ideas by following this link.

For everyone’s protection, our tourism businesses are applying higher standards of cleaning and have changed their procedures to comply with Government guidance. Many are now proud holders of the UK wide Good to Go tourism accreditation.

Please remember to keep your distance from others, to wash your hands frequently and to war a face covering in indoor public spaces.

Make your promise to Wales. Be respectful and do the little things to keep Wales safe.
