As we approach April we are reminding those of you who have a second or more green bin that they want to be emptied fortnightly that you will have to pay £30 per bin per year.

The decision was part of the Difficult Decisions budget process which was agreed in February.

NEVER MISS A BIN COLLECTION – SIGN UP FOR WEEKLY EMAIL REMINDERS NOW.

Your first green bin will be emptied as part of your annual council tax payment.

If you would like us to continue to collect additional green garden waste bins from your property, for an annual charge of £30 per bin, information about the service and how to subscribe can be found at www.wrexham.gov.uk or by contacting Pride in Your Street on 01978 298989.

In order to guarantee collections from 1 April 2018, please contact us as soon as possible.

Please note: – any additional bins you currently have can be kept for storage, however only additional bins that you have registered with Wrexham County Borough Council will be emptied from April 1 2018. You will be sent a sticker to put on these bins once you register.

We would strongly advise that you clearly mark all your bin/s with your house name or number.

Don’t forget you can also take your garden waste to your nearest Household Recycling Centre free of charge or, if you have the space, you can compost it at home.

Cllr David A Bithell, Lead Member for the Environment and Transport, said: “I would like to thank everyone who took the time to take part in our consultation for their comments which has helped us make the difficult decisions. Everyone will still get their first green bin emptied as part of their council tax.”
