Duo unite in fight against fly-tip­pers

Llanelli Star - - NEWS -

TWO Llanelli coun­cil­lors have put aside party pol­i­tics to call for stricter fines and more en­force­ment of­fi­cers in a bid to tackle fly-tip­ping in the town.

Coun­cil­lors Siôn Davies, a Con­ser­va­tive, and John Jenk­ins, an In­de­pen­dent, sub­mit­ted a joint mo­tion to Llanelli Town Coun­cil call­ing on Car­marthen­shire Coun­cil to crack­down harshly on fly-tip­pers.

Fly-tip­ping in­cludes any­thing from gen­eral house­hold waste, like fridges, so­fas, mat­tresses and gar­den waste, as well as com­mer­cial and in­dus­trial waste, like soil, clin­i­cal waste, rub­ble and tyres.

The mo­tion, which was passed unan­i­mously at the July full coun­cil meet­ing, means that Llanelli Town Coun­cil will now write to the county’s ex­ec­u­tive board mem­ber for en­vi­ron­ment, call­ing for a zero-tol­er­ance ap­proach to fly-tip­ping in Llanelli and ad­vo­cat­ing for stricter fines and more en­force­ment of­fi­cers to keep an eye on fly-tip­ping hotspots.
