Hightown residents are called to action next week when Wrexham Council and partners hold a Recycling Action Day in the area on 9th August.
Between 10.00 am and 2.00 pm recycling opportunities for wood, garden waste, cardboard and paper, Tetra Pak Cartons, hard plastics, furniture, electrical items and scrap metal. Recycling officers will be on hand to help with sorting and will have plenty of advice and guidance to pass on to residents.
There will also be skips on hand for large bulky items that can't be recycled and that need to be cleared and disposed of properly.
The recycling and skip area will be behind Hightown Community Centre on Brynycabanau Road. Those with difficulty getting goods to the recycling and skip area can contact the number below or simply leave their goods by the front door and they will be collected.
Also available on the day is free compost from Wrexham's Recycling Park, made from residents own green and food waste. Residents are asked to take their own bag to fill with compost.
Partners including Communities First, the Fire and Rescue Service, North Wales Police, Commujnity Payback and Partners of Welsh Government funded initiative, Fly-tipping Action Wales,will take part in the day.
Local Councillor, Graham Rogers, said:
"This is a fantastic opportunity for people in the area to take pride in their community and learn what's available to them to help them recycle or re-use their unwanted household goods. Recycling has a positive impact on the environment and helps give us all cleaner, greener and safer communities. I would like to thank everyone who will be involved next week for their hard work and commitment to making the day a huge success.”
Lead Member for the Environment, Cllr Bob Dutton, said:
“This is an excellent example of what can be achieved by working together for the benefit of the community and their environment. I know this is the first of many Recycling Action Days to take place in the area and hope as many residents as possible take part.”
Before the Recycling Day the Council will be sending in the mechanical street sweepers to clean the streets in the area. On the 8 August residents living in even numbered properties, for example 2,4,6, in Norman Road, Brynycabanau Road, Nelson Street, Haig Road, Range Road, Saxon Street, Beechely Road, Stuart Way, Hanover Way, Beech Gardens and Bennions are asked to park on the opposite side of the road or, where this isn't possible, to find alternative parking between 10.00 and 2.00 to make sure their street gets cleaned. On the 15 August those in odd numbered properties, for example, 1,3,5, in the same streets are asked to do the same with their vehicles.
