COMMUNITY leaders have promised to keep a regular check on refuse collections in parts of Wrexham.
It follows complaints from residents in the Offa part of the town.
They claim bins are left in the middle of roads and pavements and lids scattered all over the place.
Alexandra Road was a particular hotspot but members of Offa Community Council were told the problems were widespread.
County councillor Alun Jenkins had accompanied the refuse teams and officials and Cllr Linda Subacchi said there had been an improvement in recent weeks but it was important checks were kept up.
Cllr Steven Vale said he placed one bin outside his home and there was five empty ones outside the following morning.
He said it seemed the refuse teams gathered a number of bins together and then emptied them into one bin.
Cllr Ben Davies said the employees never stopped running so they could finish at the depot on time.
Wrexham Council has advised the residents that if they have a problem they should report the number of the lorry and the issue can be looked into right away.
But the council also asked residents to play their part by putting the bins and boxes out in the right places and also putting them away as soon as possible after collections.
