Fly-tipping is the illegal dumping of waste. It can vary from a single bin bag to thousands of tonnes of waste. It can be dangerous, pollutes land and waterways and costs local authorities significant amounts of money to clear away.
Last year there were 288 recorded incidents of fly-tipping in Wrexham alone.
Cllr David A. Bithell, Lead Member for Environment and Transport said, “These photos show just some of the shocking instances of fly tipping from across the county. Fly-tipping is illegal and residents should ensure that if they have bulky items to dispose of they use a reputable company or the councils bulky waste collection service.”
If you have large amounts of rubbish to dispose of please ensure that you use a reputable company to do it on your behalf. The company acting on your behalf can not dispose of the items at our household recycling centres but must dispose of it at a private licensed facility.
Wrexham Councils Bulky Waste Collection Service…
You can also use Wrexham County Borough Councils bulky waste collection service. Bulky waste refers to items that are too large to be taken away with the normal refuse collection. This can mean items such as furniture, white goods and garden equipment. Up to eight items can be collected for a minimum charge of £40.50. Any additional item over eight items has an extra charge of £8.10 per item.
We will take:
• Furniture (e.g. tables, chairs, suites, beds, mattresses, cabinets, desks, bookcases, wardrobes)
• White goods (e.g. fridges, freezers, cookers, tumble dryers, microwaves)
• Garden equipment (e.g. small lawnmowers, garden implements, garden tables and chairs, barbeques, bikes)
• Carpet (small amounts of carpet and underlay (off cuts of no more than 1 room size)
• Electrical and electronic equipment (e.g. computers, televisions)
The Council only offers a kerbside collection of garden/organic waste in the green bin, we do not offer any further collection services for green waste, soil or rubble.
Bulky collections are normally made on your next collection day providing that a notice of 2 working days is given. More information about bulky collections can be found here
