Christmas and New Year bin collections

Carmarthenshire residents are being reminded that there are changes to bin collections over the festive period.

Collections are taking place on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve as normal, however there are no collections on Christmas Day, Boxing Day or New Year’s Day.

This means that from Wednesday, December 25 to Friday, December 27, collections take place two days later than usual

Then from Wednesday, January 1 to Friday, January 3, collections take place one day later than usual; so again if the usual collection day is Friday, bins will not be collected until the Saturday.

The council is reminding people to try and recycle as much as possible, and to use blue bags for plastic bottles, cans, cardboard packaging, wrapping paper and cards.

Unavoidable Christmas food waste such as turkey bones and vegetable peelings should go in the green food bins to be taken for composting, use the glass bank to recycle glass bottles and jars.

Residents are being reminded that they can sign up to the council’s text messaging or email alert service for latest news including information on refuse / recycling collections. Text ‘sign up’ to 0789 2345678 or email
