As part of Keep Wales Tidy’s Caru Cymru project we’re asking commercial operators and private tenants in the town centre to be responsible when it comes to their waste or face penalties which could result in the bin being removed.
The move comes after complaints about some areas being unsightly and attracting rats and other vermin.
Letters have gone to identified premises asking them to ensure their bins are cleaned, locked and that no waste is left in bags as side waste. It also identifies that the problem is now encouraging vermin to the areas.
Cllr David A Bithell, Lead Member for Environment and Transport, said, “I went to several areas in the town centre recently and was shocked at how unsightly many of the public areas where bins are stored looked.
“Most of the bins I saw were on the public highway and were overflowing. There was also a lot of side waste waiting to be taken away often by town centre environment officers which means valuable time and cost to us.
“Everyone in all areas of Wrexham has a duty of care to make sure they dispose of their rubbish correctly and we regularly remind householders of this. It’s now only fair that commercial operators and town centre tenants are also asked to do the same particularly where problems have been identified.
“We are really trying hard ensure the town centre remains clean and tidy and this will only be achieved if we all work together to make sure everywhere is clean and tidy at all times.
“I hope the situation will be resolved quickly and that everyone plays their part in keeping Wrexham tidy.”
