New opening hours for Carm's recycling centre

Carmarthenshire's Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs) have new opening times.

It means all five sites will operate the same hours.

The main aim is to make it as easy as possible for residents to recycle and dispose of their waste.

The changes reflect the seasonal variations in the usage of the sites, staying open later during the summer months. It also increases the opening times at weekends for three of the sites.
The HWRCs are located at:
• Trostre, Llanelli
• Nantycaws, Carmarthen
• Wernddu, Ammanford

During the winter (from October 1 to March 31) the centres will be open from 9am to 5pm seven days a week.

During the summer (April 1 to September 30) the centres will be open from 9am to 7pm seven days a week.

All sites are closed on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. Llangadog is also closed on Good Friday and Easter Sunday.

Executive board member for the environment Councillor Haydn Jones said: "We felt it was important that all of the recycling centres operated the same hours to make it easier for the public.

"It also made sense to have longer opening hours during the summer months."
