Important notice from Wrexham Council

There will be some slight changes to the bin and recycling dates this Christmas.  Residents are reminded to check the dates of their bin collection over the festive period with changes taking place between 23rd December – 6th January.

We are particularly asking people whose usual bin day would be Christmas day to remember to put their bins and recycling out 2 days earlier on Saturday 23rd December. After the 26th December all bin collections will be a day later (including collections taking place on Saturdays).  Normal collections will resume after the 6th January.


To download or print your calendar, go here and type in your postcode. Once your postcode is typed in, just click on your property and the system will highlight your relevant collection day and calendar – this will give you the chance to either print off or save the calendar. We also have a limited number of calendars available to pick up from the Contact Centre on Lord Street.

Cllr David A. Bithell, Lead Member for Environment and Transport, said:  “We want to ensure that residents are aware of the changes to their bin collection days during the festive period. Particularly for those residents whose bins are due to be collected on Christmas day, as this year they will be collected 2 days earlier on Saturday 23rd December. To make sure that all residents are aware of how the changes will affect them we ask that they check their bin collection calendars online or sign up to the MyUpdates email reminder service.”

Your bins will still be collected over the festive season, but the day of your collection may change so it is important to check the new 2017/18 refuse and recycling calendars which are available online for residents to download.

To make things easier and to ensure you never miss a collection again, why not sign up to our MyUpdates service. By signing up to the refuse collection reminder on MyUpdates, you’ll receive an email the day before your collection.  Just go to and fill in your details.
