Bins are currently collected every Friday in the main village (Mondays in the old village). Pick up times can vary so ideally put your bins out the night before. When there is a bank holiday, collection days may be pushed forward by one day. If in doubt, check the website from Carmarthenshire Council or stick your head out of the window and follow what your neighbour is doing. 

Village: BLUE bins will be collected this Friday.

Old village: BLACK bins will be collected next week on Monday.
