There will be normal bin collections across Wrexham tomorrow (i.e. Friday’s collections will go ahead).
Please can you ensure that all recycling and refuse / green waste is ready from 7.30am.
Please remember not to go to our country parks or Bellvue Park tomorrow.
Take extra care to avoid areas with large amounts of trees that could be effected by the storm.
All train services in Wales have been suspended by Network Rail / Transport for Wales and all school transport has been cancelled due to school premises being closed.
Members of the public are advised not to travel unless absolutely necessary.
Councillor David A Bithell, Wrexham Council’s Lead Member for Environment and Transport, says:
“We’re preparing for the worst and our streetscene services will be operating as normal and contingency arrangements are in place.
“Please be aware of the weather forecast and take all precautions at home as necessary to be as safe as possible. For example, try to place garden furniture in sheds or garages.”
