Council tenants were given a helping hand to recycle rubbish and household items recently at a community skip day.
The event was organised by Wrexham Council’s Caia estate office and held in the Whitegate area of Caia Park.
A skip was provided for tenants to dispose of unwanted items and bulky rubbish.
Staff from the estate office, the Council’s Streetscene service and the Probation service were on hand to help tenants with some of the heavy work.
A valuable service for tenants
Local Councillor for Whitegate, Cllr Brian Cameron, also attended. He said: “This has proved to be another very busy skip day at Whitegate and I’d like to thank the team from the estate office, Streetscene, the Probation Service and the local tenants for taking part in the event.
“I think the success of today’s event shows what a useful service this is for tenants. It makes it so much easier for them to dispose of awkward items without having to travel far from their homes or arrange collections.”
“I’m very pleased with how the day went – apart from the weather! I hope we’ll be able to continue holding these events in future.”
Busiest events seen this year
Lead Member for Housing, Cllr David Griffiths, said: “Our five council estate offices regularly organise events such as these in communities across the county borough. They provide a valuable service, helping tenants to keep their homes tidy and clear out unwanted items.
“We’ve seen some of the busiest ever events of this type over the summer months so I’m delighted that they are continuing to be successful and that more and more tenants are taking advantage of them.”
