With Christmas fast approaching, residents across Wrexham are being advised of some slight changes to the bin and recycling dates over the festive period.
The changes to bin collection will take place between December 23rd and January 6th, with people whose bin collection day would be Christmas Day, to remember to put their bins and recycling out two days earlier on Saturday 23rd December.
Bins will still be collected over the festive season, but the day of your collection may change so it is important to check the new 2017/18 refuse and recycling calendars which are available online for residents to download.
After the 26th December all bin collections will be a day later (including collections taking place on Saturdays) – with normal collections resuming after the 6th January.
Cllr David A. Bithell, Lead Member for Environment and Transport, said: “We want to ensure that residents are aware of the changes to their bin collection days during the festive period. Particularly for those residents whose bins are due to be collected on Christmas Day, as this year they will be collected two days earlier on Saturday 23rd December.
“To make sure that all residents are aware of how the changes will affect them we ask that they check their bin collection calendars online or sign up to the MyUpdates email reminder service.”
To download or print your calendar, go here and type in your postcode. Once your postcode is typed in, just click on your property and the system will highlight your relevant collection day and calendar – this will give you the chance to either print off or save the calendar. Wrexham Council also have a limited number of calendars available to pick up from the Contact Centre on Lord Street.
To make things easier and to ensure that you never miss a bin collection again, you can sign up to Wrexham Council’s MyUpdates service. Just go to the Wrexham Council website and fill in your details.
