More than 152 people came along to the Waste Amnesty at Newcastle Emlyn.
During the five hours of the amnesty, which was held in the mart carpark last Thursday (Feb 22), more than six tonnes of waste – including 105 tyres – were recycled.
Items ranged from fridges, freezers and cookers, to vacuums, wood, furniture and mattresses.
Householders could also pick up replacement food bins and had the chance to buy compost bins.
The waste and tyre amnesty was organised by the council’s recycling team to help combat fly-tipping and encourage residents to recycle.
Executive Board Member for Environment Cllr Hazel Evans said: “It’s great to see so many people coming along and making the most of the opportunity to get rid of their waste.”
The next waste amnesty will be held in Llandovery Mart on Saturday, March 24 from 8am-12pm.
