Strike impact update
As you may be aware, Unite the Union intend to continue the current period of industrial action until November 24, 2023. With this in mind we have been working to come up with a plan for waste and recycling collections over the coming weeks.
From Monday, October 9, there will be a temporary change to the collection schedule whilst the ongoing industrial action is taking place.
The new, temporary collection schedule (from October 9) means your collections will be split in a three-week cycle where we will attempt to collect:
- Your black/blue bins and food waste one week
- Your dry recycling and food waste one week
- No collection for one of the weeks
It’s important to note that your collections won’t necessarily be in this order e.g. your black bin collection may not take place in the first week, it may happen in the second or third week, which is why it’s really important to always check your bin day first.
During this period, the best way to stay up to date on when your collections are taking place is to enter your postcode in the check your bin day section on our website.
Please share this info with your friends, family and neighbours who may not have seen our latest updates, or may need some support checking their revised collection dates.
Extra support to check updated collection dates is also available by calling the Contact Centre on 01978 298989 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or you can drop into your local housing estate office.
We’ve had to make these changes as we continue to balance the resources we have across the collection rounds, and at present we can only offer a managed frequency of collections.
These changes take place from Monday, October 9 and override any previous communication you have received.
Other things to note
- Winter weather may impact on our ability to deliver the proposed schedule
- Extra caddy liners and blue sacks can be picked up at various locations across Wrexham
We know this disruption is frustrating, but we’re working hard to try and manage services, and would like to thank everyone for their continued patience.
While we’ve outlined our intentions, we’re working through a period of industrial action and we need to assess available resources on a daily basis – as well as balancing demand for other critical services (for example, responding to adverse weather).
