CARMARTHENSHIRE County Council will be collecting waste and recycling (including garden waste) on Good Friday (April 10) and Easter Monday (April 13) this year, in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Residents are being reminded to put their bins out the night before as collections can take place earlier than usual within the day.
Crews are changing their ways of working to ensure bin and recycling collections can continue as normal for as long as possible in Carmarthenshire.
Teams are starting routes earlier than usual to allow them to juggle childcare arrangements in order to keep essential services going.
Some crews are working from 4am in order to ensure their partners who work in the NHS, as care workers or in other key services can continue with their crucial services.
Executive board member responsible for environment, Cllr Hazel Evans, said: “I applaud our crews for thinking outside of the box to ensure not only that essential services such as this can carry on, but also other essential services not only within the authority but with key partner agencies such as the NHS.
“I must also thank CWM environmental who have opened their waste transfer stations early to accommodate this arrangement. This shows the cooperative can-do spirit of our workforce and managers in doing their utmost to keep this essential service going.”
