WREXHAM Council have announced changes to the bin collection schedule amid ongoing strike action. 

Council workers have been on strike since early September over a pay dispute, with several services impacted by the industrial action. 

Earlier this week, Unite announced plans to extend the strike until November 24 and in response the authority have announced some changes to collection dates. 

From Monday, October 9, there will be a temporary change to the collection schedule whilst the ongoing industrial action is taking place.

The new, temporary collection schedule (from October 9) means your collections will be split in a three-week cycle where the council will attempt to collect:

· Black/blue bins and food waste one week

· Dry recycling and food waste one week

· No collection for one of the weeks

A Wrexham Council spokesperson said: "It’s important to note that your collections won’t necessarily be in this order e.g. your black bin collection may not take place in the first week, it may happen in the second or third week, which is why it’s really important to always check your bin day first.

"During this period, the best way to stay up to date on when your collections are taking place is to enter your postcode in the check your bin day section on our website.


"Please share this info with your friends, family and neighbours who may not have seen our latest updates, or may need some support checking their revised collection dates.

"We’ve had to make these changes as we continue to balance the resources we have across the collection rounds, and at present we can only offer a managed frequency of collections.

"These changes take place from Monday, October 9 and override any previous communication you have received.

"We know this disruption is frustrating, but we’re working hard to try and manage services, and would like to thank everyone for their continued patience.

"While we’ve outlined our intentions, we’re working through a period of industrial action and we need to assess available resources on a daily basis – as well as balancing demand for other critical services (for example, responding to adverse weather)."
