"Whilst appreciating the difficulties in opening the service safely at the moment we are concerned that there will be a further increase in fly tipping as we move into the summer.
"We will continue to press Denbighshire on this issue so that the collection from Llangollen Pavilion will be able to be resumed as soon as possible."
Denbighshire County Council has announced it will re-open the household waste recycling centres during the week commencing 25th May.
The date will be confirmed in the coming days and the three waste and recycling centres at Lon Parcwr (Ruthin), Colomendy Industrial Estate (Denbigh) and Marsh Road (Rhyl) will re-open for the public to dispose of small amounts of household waste, if it is essential to do so.
The “pop-up” Household Waste Recycling Centres services in Corwen and Llangollen are still suspended until further notice. This is because the Council is not able to ensure that social distancing would be maintained, and it is therefore not safe to open these.
Councillor Brian Jones, Cabinet Lead Member for Waste, Transport and the Environment, said: “Our teams have been working hard during these unprecedented times to keep as many of our services as possible operating, including recycling, food and waste collections.
“We recognise that the closure of the recycling centres will have caused a lot of disruption and we thank residents for their patience and understanding. We were following the national guidelines and due to the fact that some staff needed to self-isolate or were unwell, we took the decision to close the sites. That position has been under review daily and we have been involved in discussions regionally to re-open the sites as quickly as possible.
“We are expecting a very high demand for use of the sites and we are finalising the details and will make a further announcement in the coming days.
