    Changing to three weekly bin collections will save the council £47,000. Opening up the Guildhall Councillor’s Car park to the public seven days a week would create income to match that. Not to mention the £22,000 spent on the unnecessary resurfacing of that car park!

    £47,000 a year is that it? Surely with thousands of households paying in council tax – that could be factored as an increase in the council tax. Spread out across the whole county that’s just a few quid each surely. Would rather swallow a small collective cost than have smelly bins and rats everywhere.

    Flintshire Leader reporting fly tipping affecting Flintshire school, not surprising when you only have 40% paying for a green bin to be emptied. Wonder what level fly tipping in Wrexham would reach with three weekly bin collections?

    Call me an old fart but I can remember when we had bins and the bin men used to take our bin bags once a week. That seemed to work ok.

    Me and Mrs councillor X manage to fill our black bin in two weeks and it’s only me and her. Three week collections would be a bad move.

    Have you tried getting Mrs Councillor X to stand in the bin and jump up and down ?

    Or are those bruises just the norm ?

    I suppose there’s no harm in mentioning that they will take those wide plastic food trays with the plastic bottles now. Frees up a bit of bin space, but not likely a week’s worth.

    We tried her standing in the bin but the bin men refused to take her!
