Our Winter Maintenance teams have been continuously gritting through the night and continue to work today to address, repair and clean up as required.

Salt heaps/salt bins are being replenished across the network where identified and requested by members of the public, and this will continue today.  

The cold spell of weather will continue over the next couple of days so it is likely that our gritting teams will be operating over the next 24 hours at least.

Waste and recycling collections were impacted by the weather conditions yesterday (23 January), particularly in the areas of Afonwen, Caerwys, Ysceifiog, Carmel, Whitford, Gorsedd, Milwr, Pistyll, Greenfield and parts of Holywell, such as the Holway, Wedgewood Heights and Coed-y-Fron.

Waste collections (black bins) that weren’t collected yesterday (23 January) because of the snow and icy road conditions are expected to be collected today, providing that we can get our vehicles to the identified locations.  Residents are being advised to leave their bins out again for collection today (24 January).  

Any recycling and food collections that weren’t completed yesterday (23 January) will be scheduled for collection on Tuesday, 26th January, when the weather conditions are currently forecasted to improve and residents are being advised to place their recycling and food waste containers out for collection again by 7am on Tuesday morning (26 January).
