Carmarthenshire County Council says a Llanelli householder has been fined £100 for putting their rubbish bags outside someone else’s house.

The resident was issued with the fixed penalty notice by council environmental enforcement officers.

They had already received a notice under Section 46 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990.

Officers had already spoken to the resident concerned and warned them that if they breached the notice they would be fined. People must put their bags out on the correct day, in the correct location and with the correct items in. We don’t want to fine people; however if a resident continually ignores the council’s advice we have no choice.
