Changes to Bin Collections this Christmas and New Year in Carmarthenshire

Here’s a little reminder to if there will be some changes to bin collections dates for residents in Carmarthenshire over the Christmas and New Year period

The all-important dates for when your blue recycling and black rubbish bags will be picked up over the Christmas and New Year’s period in Carmarthenshire.

A lot more rubbish tends to be produced at this time of the year, so people are being urged to try and recycle as much as possible. Blue bags should be used to recycle all your plastic bottles, cans and foil, e.g. mince pie cases, cardboard packaging, wrapping paper and cards. Your Christmas food waste should go in green food bins so that it can be taken for composting. Glass bottles and jars can be recycled at glass recycling banks

Due to the increased amount of waste generated at this time of year it may also take longer for the crews to complete their rounds so collections could take place up until 4pm.

Christmas and New Year Bin Collections for 2021/22 will take place as follows:

There are also changes to recycling centre opening times over the Christmas period.

Trostre (Llanelli), Wernddu (Ammanford), Nantycaws (Carmarthen) and Whitland are all closed Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day. Don’t forget you must have booked a slot before you visit.

They are open 8.30am to 12noon on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve, all other days are as normal.

With our blue recycling bags and black bags being collected on the same day, but on alternate weeks and food waste weekly, it is easy enough to lose track of what week is what.
