Residents urged to have a New Year clear out

RESIDENTS in Newcastle Emlyn are being urged to have a New Year clear out

A waste and tyre amnesty is being held in the mart car park on Tuesday, January 19 between 8am and 1pm. Most household waste can be taken along including unwanted furniture, carpets and mattresses, electrical items such as fridge-freezers and televisions, as well as black and blue bags. A maximum of four tyres can also be disposed of; however, tractor or lorry tyres will not be accepted.

Hazardous waste such as paint, fluorescent tubes, batteries, chemicals, gas bottles and asbestos will not be accepted along with glass, garden waste, trade waste, construction waste and agricultural waste. Residents can pick up a free bag of Merlin s Magic Compost (while stocks last) courtesy of CWM Environmental Ltd. Half-price compost bins will also be on sale for just 6 instead of the usual 12.

Executive Board Member for the Environment Cllr Hazel Evans said: I hope residents take advantage of this opportunity to have a clear out after Christmas. They may have unwanted items around the home that they need to dispose of.

Hopefully the amnesty will help to reduce fly-tipping and encourage people to recycle as much as possible reducing the amount of rubbish going to landfill. Residents are advised to please bring proof of address.
