Garden waste collections to take place monthly during winter
Garden waste collections in Wrexham will take place on a monthly basis during the winter.
As with previous years residents’ green bins will be emptied once a month in December, January and February.
Monthly green bin collections during the winter have been in place for several years.
The change was introduced by Wrexham Council to help save money and free up environmental resources during the winter months.
Fortnightly collections will resume as normal in March 2024.
A spokesperson for Wrexham Council said: “Reducing the collections during these months frees up staff to help us deal with any issues caused by the cold weather, such as gritting routes or general maintenance.
“Residents who are signed up to the garden waste collection service will still get at least one garden waste collection in each month from December-February.
“Please remember, the three household recycling centres have garden waste skips should you need to use them.
“It’s advisable to check sign up for our email alerts so you don’t miss any collections. You can also check your bin day which can help to keep you on track.
“The usual fortnightly collections will then resume in March, when demand increases, ready for the spring season.”
Due to the recent industrial action residents who are signed up to the garden waste collection service are also being reminded that the current garden waste collection has been extended to run until February 28, 2025.
