Denbighshire County Council are holding six drop-in sessions during April and May giving residents the opportunity to ask questions about the new recycling system which starts from 3 June 2024.

This is chance to ask questions about how to separate your recycling; find out how collections are changing; learn about what you can and can’t recycle; and find out how you can reduce your waste.

The recycling drop-in sessions will be held between 2pm and 7pm in the following locations:

Wednesday, 24 April                  Denbighshire County Council Offices, Caledfryn, Smithfield Road, Denbigh, LL16 3RJ

Wednesday, 1 May                     Rhuddlan Community Centre, Parliament Street, Rhuddlan, LL18 5AW

Thursday, 9 May                          Prestatyn Library, Kings Avenue, Prestatyn, LL19 9AA

Wednesday, 15 May                  Llangollen Town Hall, Parade Street, Llangollen, LL20 8NU

Wednesday, 22 May                  Rhyl Town Hall, Wellington Road, Rhyl, LL18 1BA

Wednesday, 29 May                  County Hall, Wynnstay Road, Ruthin, LL15 1YN

Paul Jackson, Head of Highways and Environmental Service said, “We understand that we are introducing quite a lot of changes with this new service and these sessions aim to help answer the questions that residents may have, so we hope there will be good attendance and engagement.

“This new recycling system has many benefits for residents and the county. It is better for the environment as it will lead to increased recycling rates; it will be cheaper to run than the current service providing better value for money; and it’s also good for the local economy leading to the creation of 27 new jobs. The project to build a new Waste Transfer Station has also created economic benefits by enabling the expansion of four local businesses on the Colomendy Industrial Estate in Denbigh.

“This is a collective effort between our Waste and Recycling Team and the people of Denbighshire, and I would like to say thank you, as your recycling is making a big difference.”
