We want to remind our residents that have subscribed to the garden waste collection service we’ll 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: “Having monthly garden waste collections in December, January and February allowed us to free up staff to deal with problematic issues caused by the winter, such as gritting routes or general maintenance.
“But as we move towards Spring, hopefully it will start to get a little warmer and residents will be able to make use of their green bin(s) more often, so these collections are going to switch back to fortnightly from March onwards.”
Not signed up for 2021/22 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 September 2, 2022, 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.
Service charge frozen until September 2023
The cost of the garden waste collection service has been frozen at £25 per green bin per year for the next service year (September 2022-August 2023).
Cllr Bithell added: “We’re pleased to be able to freeze the cost of the service until September 2023. The £25 per green bin per year charge will keep the cost of the Wrexham service one of the lowest in England and Wales.”
We expect renewals for the Sept 2022-August 2023 service to open in the summer. Please don’t attempt to renew before we provide you with these details.
