New subscribers warned “full 12 months service isn’t currently available” for garden waste collection
Wrexham Council has issued a clarification on its garden waste collection service.
It comes after a number of residents have recently signed up thinking are getting a year’s subscription from the date they joined.
However the local authority says anyone subscribing to the service now will only get 3.5 months of collections.
Currently green bins are emptied for residents who pay a £25 per bin subscription service, with the next renewal service opening in September 2022.
A spokesperson for Wrexham Council said: “We would like to advise any residents not signed up for garden waste collections who are now thinking of joining that they need to wait until sales open up for the next collection year if they want to get a full 12 months service.
“Residents who don’t already receive the collections can still join the current 2021/22 service, but need to be aware it runs until September 2, 2022, so should you join the service now you’ll only be getting around 3.5 months of collections.
“The next full 12 months service isn’t currently available. We expect renewals for the September 2022-August 2023 service to open in the summer.
“Please don’t attempt to renew before we provide you with these details.”
The cost of the garden waste collection service has been frozen at £25 per green bin per year for the next service year (September 2022-August 2023).
Darren Williams, Chief Officer Environment and Technical, said: “We’re pleased to be able to freeze the cost of the service until September 2023. The £25 per green bin per year charge will keep the cost of the Wrexham service one of the lowest in England and Wales.”
