Waste Statement for Carmarthenshire


The purpose of the waste statement is to set out what the Council has done to date to meet its statutory recycling and waste targets, our performance to date, and what we will deliver over the next few years up to 2025

Carmarthenshire County Council provides waste services to approximately 91,000 households. We provide the following collections:

  • Fortnightly residual black bag kerbside collection
  • Fortnightly co-mingled (blue bag) kerbside recycling collection
  • Weekly food collection.
  • Fortnightly hygiene collection on request
  • Bulky items and garden waste chargeable collection on request

    In addition, we provide four Household Waste Recycling Centres located at Whitland, Wernddu, Nantycaws and Trostre and smaller recycling sites across the county for glass, small electricals, textiles, and media.
