WREXHAM Council is reminding residents that it will not take any extra bags of rubbish left next to general waste bins.

The council said it while it will collect extra recycling, if presented correctly, it will not take extra general waste. 

Cllr Hugh Jones, Wrexham Council's lead member for environment, said: “We don’t accept side waste, so please don’t leave any next to your bins. If you have any extra bags of waste that won’t fit in your bin, you will need to take them to one of the recycling centres.

"You can find the opening hours of the recycling centres in Wrexham on our website. Alternatively, you can keep hold of the bags until you have enough room to put them in your rubbish bin ready for your next scheduled collection.”


If your recycling boxes get full, you can leave any extra recyclables in solid containers next to other recycling on collection day and the council's refuse team will recycle the materials (leaving the containers behind for you to reuse again).

But people with extra recycling are urged to separate the materials as they usually would. For instance, if you have extra plastic bottles and glass, the council asks to please put the plastic in one container and the glass in a separate container.

Also, it will collect clean, flattened cardboard left by recycling containers as long as it is no larger in height or width than a standard issue blue sack.
