Here is the latest situation in the county:

Roads: Snow showers will be less frequent throughout the afternoon and it will become drier this evening although there is still a risk of ice overnight into tomorrow morning.  All routes will be gritted at 4pm this afternoon and again tonight at 11pm with gritting crews remaining on duty overnight to patrol the network. Further gritting actions will be carried during the daytime tomorrow.

Bus services: Passengers are advised that were snowfall is forecast over the weekend some bus services may be disrupted, sometimes significantly, depending upon local conditions.

Waste collection: Any residual waste collections missed today (Friday, January 8) will be collected next week once conditions have improved. Customers are advised to put their bins out daily from Monday (January 11) from 7am until collection. This also applies to garden waste green bin collections.

Any food waste collections missed today will be collected on the next scheduled collection day, Friday, January 15.

The pop up recycling service in Llangollen on Saturday, January 9, has been cancelled due to the adverse weather conditions in the wider area. We ask that residents who booked online to re-book their slot any time from Monday, 18 January for the Saturday, 23 January event.  The Council will contact customers who booked through the contact centre to organise a new booking. We would like to thank residents for their understanding during this time
