Householders in Pencader and the surrounding areas are being urged to have a clear out.

A waste and tyre amnesty is being held at Ysgol Cae’r Felin, Pencader on Thursday, November 2 from 8am-1pm.

Most household waste can be taken along including, unwanted furniture, carpets and mattresses, electrical items such as fridge-freezers and televisions, as well as black bags.

A maximum of four tyres can also be disposed of; however, tractor or lorry tyres will not be accepted.

Hazardous waste such as paint, fluorescent tubes, batteries, chemicals, gas bottles and asbestos will not be accepted along with glass, trade waste, construction waste and agricultural waste.

Compost bins will also be on sale for £12.
