A Woman has been fined for dumping a black bag next to a bus shelter in Bancycapel.
She was issued with a fixed penalty notice for £75 for the offence by council environmental enforcement officers.
Failure to pay could result in prosecution in the magistrates court and a fine of up to £2,500.
The council hopes this will now act as a warning to others that dropping litter or fly-tipping of any kind will not be tolerated.
The council has launched a spring clean-up campaign; and with the Olympic flame travelling through Carmarthenshire later this month, we want a county we can be proud of.
The aim is to encourage people to dispose of their rubbish more responsibly and raise awareness of the effect litter and fly-tipping has on the environment.
Director of Technical Services Richard Workman said: “Dropping litter and fly-tipping is against the law. Not only does it spoil our quality of life and enjoyment of the environment, but it can cause serious pollution and harm to human health and wildlife.
“We do not want to fine people but we are determined to clean up Carmarthenshire and we will not hesitate to prosecute those that break the law in this way.”
