A woman has been ordered to pay £860 for dumping a bag of rubbish at a recycling bank in Llanelli.
Enforcement officers spotted the woman, 31, leaving the black bag in front of a litter bin under a "no fly-tipping" sign at the Dafen Pond site.
She failed to pay a fixed penalty notice and was convicted in her absence at Carmarthen Magistrates' Court.
The woman was fined £600 and was ordered to pay £200 court costs and a £60 victim surcharge.
Councillor Jim Jones, Carmarthenshire council's executive member for environmental and public protection, said dumped rubbish would not be tolerated.
