529 tyres collected in amnesty 

Daniel Snaith from Keep Wales Tidy with Dorian Lee from Tidy Towns and Tony Davies from TD Tyre Recycling help Rob Owen from CapA total of 529 tyres were collected to be recycled in an amnesty in Ammanford.
Various items of furniture and electrical items were also taken along to the waste and tyre amnesty held in Tesco.
The event was organised by the council’s waste and recycling section in partnership with Tidy Towns.
The aim of the amnesty was to encourage people to dispose of their waste responsibly, reduce fly-tipping and increase recycling.
Officers were on hand to offer information and advice to residents on various waste and recycling issues.
Executive Board Member for Street Scene Cllr Colin Evans said: “Nearly all of the waste brought along to the amnesty can be recycled which means it won’t end up in landfill polluting our environment.
“Householders should be aware that if their waste is found fly-tipped, they could be held responsible and prosecuted in court. Hopefully the amnesty has encouraged people to do the right thing and dispose of their waste in a responsible manner as well as raise awareness of why it is so important that we recycle as much possible.”
Tidy Towns is a Welsh Government-funded initiative delivered in partnership by Carmarthenshire County Council and Keep Wales Tidy.
