Today is the first day of strike action in Wrexham by the Unite trade union.
We’ve reviewed resources and are pleased to confirm we’re prioritising black waste bin collections on our planned routes in local community areas e.g. Plas Madoc, Rhos, Johnstown and Penycae.
Unfortunately, it’s unlikely that we’ll get to green bins or dry recycled waste, as we have insufficient resource.
For grounds maintenance, we have our large tractors out cutting grass and operatives are working in the north area around Coedpoeth.
For street cleaning in the town centre, our morning shift is currently out working. We have a shift-change at lunchtime and will review activities following this.
Our highways gangs are all out today undertaking reactive work, including our gully wagons and mechanical sweepers who are working to their schedule.
There are no implications for our Cemeteries and Crematorium, so these are operating as normal.
