What do I do with my garden waste?
Home composting is one of the most environmentally-friendly and cost-effective ways of dealing with garden waste. Around one third of our waste can be easily composted at home – from garden clippings to cardboard, tea bags and paper.

Food and garden waste is taken to a central composting facility at Nantycaws, Carmarthen, where it is turned into compost or soil conditioner to be reused.
Compost bins can be purchased from the council for £18 including delivery, call Carmarthenshire Direct on 01267 234567.
