Reduce My Rubbish
What can you do?More
No matter where you live in Norfolk, you can put the same items in your household recycling bin.
Norfolk’s recycling service accepts a wide range of materials right from your home. Please see below for full list.
Just remember our 3 simple rules:
Please make sure your cartons are empty, rinsed out and remove any lids as these are too small to be recycled.
Please make sure your tins and cans are empty, rinsed out and dry before placing in your recycling bin.
Please remove any lids as these cannot be recycled.
Please rinse or wipe your foil trays out and dry before placing in your bin.
Please don’t put laminated aluminium foil pouches (like those used for baby food/cat and dog food) in your recycling bin as we cannot recycle them.
You can leave the lids or tops on, but please make sure your bottles and jars are empty and rinsed out.
Please do not put any other types of glass (like drink glasses, Pyrex, mirror or window glass) in your recycling bin as we cannot recycle them. You will need to take these items to your local recycling centre, or if in usable condition donate to a charity or reuse shop.
You can leave the lids or tops on, but please make sure your bottles are empty and rinsed out.
Please ensure your plastic pots, tubs and trays are empty and rinsed out.
Plastic lids can be left on, but cellophane lids and cling film need to be removed as we cannot recycle these.
