Many households in Wrexham regularly use our Household Recycling Centres and find them reliable and efficient but there’s been a few occasions recently when some people have been turned away.

This usually happens because they don’t fit the criteria such as living in Wrexham or they’re removing someone else’s waste for profit – a “man in a van”.

Work in social care and be the lifeline your community needs.

We thought it useful to remind everyone of the criteria for using the sites:

  • Only bring household waste. Don’t bring commercial or business waste.
  • Bring proof that you live in the county borough (e.g. a utility bill with your address on it). The sites are for Wrexham residents only.
  • Be patient if you have to queue.
  • Trailers are allowed at all our sites

Remember if you pay someone to remove your waste please check they have a valid Waste Carriers Licence – you can check if they’re registered here.

Cllr David A Bithell, Lead Member for Environment and Transport, said, “Our HRCs are well used and appreciated by the vast majority of residents. Unfortunately, some take advantage and regularly take other people’s rubbish, for a fee, and once this is recognised by those on site they will be prevented from accessing the site.

“Please always check that if you’re paying someone to remove your rubbish that they’re registered otherwise it could be fly-tipped and you could receive a hefty fine if it’s traced back to you.”

If you’re looking for a new career and want to help people in your community, a job in social care could be the right move.
