Four people fined for dropping litter
Another four people have been fined for dropping litter in Carmarthenshire.
Three of the fixed penalty notices issued by council environmental enforcement officers were for dropping cigarette ends.
The first was to a woman in Corporation Avenue, Llanelli; another woman was fined in Bowen Terrace in Llanelli and the third incident occurred in Heol Tregonning in Morfa.
Officers also issued a fixed penalty notice to a man who dropped a drinks can in Queen Mary’s Walk in Llanelli.
The £75 fine is reduced to £50 if paid within 10 days. However, failure to pay could lead to court prosecution where the maximum fine is £2,500.
Executive Board Member for Environmental and Public Protection Cllr Jim Jones said: “We do not want to fine people but keeping the county clean is a high priority.
“There is no excuse for dropping litter, if there isn’t a bin nearby, wait until you find one or take it home with you. Our environmental enforcement officers carry out patrols seven-days-a-week and anyone caught breaking the law in this way will be fined.”
