Twelve Wrexham recycling centres to close

Twelve neighbourhood recycling centres in Wrexham, North Wales are set to close because they are outdated and can attract fly-tippers.

Wrexham council bosses will shut the facilities across the county at the end of March, with only the three modern recycling bases remaining.

The old centres were introduced before town started its latest scheme, rolling out recycling bins to all households and setting up the trio of large new centres. A new household recycling service with updated bins will also be phased in later this year.
