Reminder: Monthly garden waste collections during winter period

Some residents have told us how they thought they had missed out on the chance to join the garden waste collection service this year by not signing up before September – please be aware this isn’t the case.

As you will know by now, the paid for service began on August 31, but if you’re not signed up and are having second thoughts, you can still join today.

It’s better value to subscribe now because you can still get 10.5 months of collections until August 31, 2021. The longer you leave it, the more you will miss out.

Darren Williams, Chief Officer Environment and Technical, said: “Many of us make use of our garden bins throughout autumn, collecting leaves falling from trees, and also clearing out any dead plants from the summer. We want to remind residents that if you haven’t already joined the garden waste collection service it’s not too late to do so. The charge is the same as before – £25 per green garden waste bin per-year, and your bin(s) will get emptied until August 31, 2021…so it’s still worth doing.”

If you wish to continue having your garden waste bin(s) collected you can pay online at www.wrexham.gov.uk/gardenwaste

This is by far the easiest and most convenient way to sign up to the service, as you can do it any time you want and it will only take a couple of minutes.

If you’re unable to do this, payment can also be made by calling 01978 298989, but please be aware that you are likely to experience a wait if you do so. We especially recommend not calling between 11.30am and 2.30pm.
