We want to remind residents who are subscribed to the garden waste collection service that we will be collecting your green bin(s) on a fortnightly basis again from next month (March).
Cllr David A Bithell, Lead Member for Environment and Transport, said: “We have been making garden waste collections on a reduced, monthly basis across December, January and February to free up staff to help us deal with problematic issues caused by the winter, such as gritting routes or general maintenance.
“As we move towards springtime – and hopefully towards some better weather – residents are more likely to be making use of their green bin(s), so these collections will revert back to being fortnightly from March onwards.”
Not signed up but now want to?
If you didn’t sign up for the garden waste collection service previously, but would now like us to collect your green bin(s) over spring and into summer, it’s not too late to sign up.
It costs £25 per bin, with our current service running until August 31, 2021, so you could still get 6 months’ worth of collections if you sign up soon.
You can sign up by visiting www.wrexham.gov.uk/gardenwaste which is the quickest and most convenient way. Alternatively, you can call 01978 298989 although you may experience a wait if you do so.
