her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

A national bank holiday has been declared across the UK to mark the funeral of our beloved Queen Elizabeth II next Monday, September 19.

As a mark of respect and wherever possible, most of Wrexham Council’s public-facing services will close for the day.

This is in line with councils across the UK, and reflects the approach taken to other bank holidays during the year.

Councillor Mark Pritchard, Leader of Wrexham Council, said: “The Queen’s funeral will be a sad and historic day for the nation, and like other councils across the UK, we’ll be pausing our services wherever possible as a mark of respect.

“The Queen was loved and admired by so many people, and the bank holiday will be a day of reflection as we mourn the loss of a very special monarch.”


All primary and secondary schools across the county borough will be closed.

Bins and recycling

Bin collections that normally take place on Mondays will take place on Saturday instead.

So if your waste and recycling is due to be collected on Monday, we’ll collect it on Saturday, September 17 instead (please put it out on Friday evening if you can).

Household waste recycling centres

Our household waste recycling centres at Brymbo, Plas Madoc and Wrexham Industrial Estate will be closed.

This is in line with the approach being taken by many other councils across the country.


Our libraries will be closed for the bank holiday.
