We’re asking everyone to check their bin calendar as we approach Christmas to make sure they don’t miss any collections.
Some households will see changes to their regular collection dates over the festive period and this is a great way to keep on top of when you will need to put your bins out.
Other things to note
For the week beginning December 20, every household in Wrexham will receive a general waste collection (black/blue bin) alongside your recycling and food waste collections.
For the week beginning December 27, no households in Wrexham will have a general waste collection (black/blue bin) or garden waste collection (green bin) – we will only be collecting recycling and food waste from properties Wednesday-Friday for that week.
General waste collections start again the following week (week beginning January 3) when everyone household in Wrexham will receive a general waste collection (black/blue bin) alongside your recycling and food waste collections. Even though it’s a bank holiday, our crews will be working on Monday (3rd).
If your recycling boxes get full, you can leave any extra recyclables in solid containers next to your other recycling on your collection day and we’ll recycle the materials (leaving the containers behind for you to reuse again).
But if you do have extra recycling, please separate the materials as you usually would…for example, if you have extra plastic bottles and glass, please put the plastic in one container and the glass in a separate container.
Also, we will collect clean, flattened cardboard left by recycling containers as long as it is no larger in height or width than a standard issue blue sack.
Households that missed out on having their recycling collected on Monday 27 and Tuesday 28 December can leave any extra recycling to be collected the following week (week beginning January 3), as long as it’s presented in the manner above.
Many residents make use of our three recycling centres throughout the Christmas period, but it’s really important to plan your visit in advance so that your visit is as quick and smooth as possible.
Remember, any residents who need further liners can just tie a liner to the handle of their kerbside caddy on collection day and our operatives will leave you a new roll.
Or you can now collect at caddy liners at over 40 locations in Wrexham too https://news.wrexham.gov.uk/recycling-pick-up-caddy-liners-and-blue-sacks-at-over-40-locations-in-wrexham/FIND LOCAL CARE JOBS
