Carmarthenshire County Councils executive board member for the environment Councillor Pam Palmer said: Recycling is one of the most practical and convenient things we can all do to protect our environment.
We can all make a difference by changing the way we do things, so that we reduce, reuse and recycle rather than just throwing away.
If we all start to rethink the way we dispose of waste, introducing even the smallest of changes to our daily routine, together we can make a big impact.
The councils kerbside recycling service is already serving almost 40,000 households and is to be expanded to an additional 30,000 householders by 2010.
Cllr Palmer added: We have had an excellent response from the public in regards to this campaign.
At recent awareness events, and within schools, the bright characters seem to capture the imagination of the public and so far, most people have declared themselves Team Green,
We just hope that this support now translates itself into action and that people take up the challenge to reduce their waste and recycle more.
