dispose of four black bags per visit, per day; and if they are over, they will either have to open up the bags on site and separate any recyclable materials, or take them home. The site is run by CWM

Environmental Ltd, on behalf of the council. Cllr Hazel Evans,

Executive Board Member for the Environment, said: “We know that some people are disposing of black bags which contain

recyclable materials A FOUR black bag limit will be

introduced at the household waste recycling centre in Whitland from Monday, January 30. The aim is to encourage

residents to separate their waste before visiting the site, and encourage them to recycle more. It is being introduced as a

three month trial initially but, if successful, it could be rolled out to the county’s other recycling centres as well. Leaflets are being handed out

at the site to inform residents of the change coming in at the end of the month; and signs have been put up. Visitors will be permitted to

and we need to take action to try and stop this. “Hopefully, by introducing a

limit on the number of black bags that can be taken to Whitland, people will start to think about what they are putting in them and, in turn, this will lead to an increase in our recycling rate. “We are currently recycling

approximately 64% of our rubbish here in Carmarthenshire and I would like to thank residents for all their efforts. “However, there is always room

for improvement and with just a few simple changes we can make a big difference.”


CHARITIES have expressed their thanks to communities in Pembrokeshire for their ‘goodwill and amazing kindness‘ after over £2,000 worth of gifts and donations were given to Withybush Hospital’s Children’s Ward over the Christmas period. Part of a brand new campaign

launched last November called Give a Gift, Hywel Dda Health Charities asked for members of the public to purchase gifts towards the Children’s Play Services in their local hospital. The Pembrokeshire public

showed their support by purchasing gifts through an Amazon wish list. Donations also flooded in from individuals and organisations, with countless people looking to aid the charitable appeal. Hywel Dda University Health

Board’s Play Specialists look to brighten the time spent by poorly children and young people in hospital. The team uses their expertise to help children, young people and their families to cope with illness and treatment using a range of therapeutic play based interventions. Play Services Manager Sandra

Jones said: “The response to the ‘Give a Gift’ appeal has been amazing. Thank you so much to everyone who donated toys, books and activities for children and young people who
