WREXHAM Council has announced it will be running a reduced green bin collection service this winter. 

Waste and recycling collections in Wrexham have been severely impacted in recent months, following strike action from council workers. 

Strikes lasted seven weeks before an agreement was finally made, which promised more regular collections. 

However, issues persisted, with some residents going 10 weeks without having bins collected. 

Now the council has reiterated to residents that there will be reduced collections for garden waste over the coming months. 

A spokesperson for the local authority said: "We would like to remind our residents who are signed up to the garden waste collection service that collections are going to be reduced again during the winter period of December, January and February.


"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.

"The usual fortnightly collections will then resume in March, when demand increases, ready for the spring season."
