With Llangollen's lack of suitable waste recycling facilities rapidly becoming a hot topic, Clwyd South Senedd Member Ken Skates (pictured) is looking into whether an agreement exists between Denbighshire and Wrexham for local people to use the Plas Madoc tip.
Since Llangollen's own recycling facility on the A539 was closed in 2007 people from this area have been using either the Wrexham site, or the "pop-up" Saturday morning waste service on the Pavilion car park.
Both facilities closed when the coronavirus lockdown began about 10 weeks ago.
But while Wrexham has now re-opened Plas Madoc, the Pavilion service has not yet been reintroduced.
Mr Skates asked Wrexham last week if Plas Madoc could be used by local people but, as llanblogger reported earlier today, he was told this was being reserved for Wrexham residents.
Now it has been suggested that some form of agreement was reached between Denbighshire and Wrexham for Llangollen's use of Plas Madoc 13 years ago.
And Mr Skates said today he was seeking clarification from the two councils about whether this is the case.
Llangollen county councillor Graham Timms is also looking into the agreement claim, which has been made by his county council predecessor Stuart Davies.
