COVID-19 Update – Recycling Centres now closed.

All recycling centres across Norfolk will be closed after today, until further notice.

The decision to close your recycling centres has not been taken lightly but it is essential to encourage residents to stay at home and do all we can to limit the spread of Coronavirus (Covid-19), we need to protect our customers and our staff.

If you were planning to visit a recycling centre please hold on to the items you want to take until they reopen. Please do not leave any waste outside the recycling centres – leaving waste outside the centres or anywhere else is classed as fly-tipping and is a criminal offence for which people will be prosecuted.

We know that these are uncertain times and that you may wish to use alternative arrangements to deal with your waste, however please make sure that you are making the right choices  and be sure to follow Government advice around staying at home and keeping safe distances between people.

For your kerbside general rubbish collection please do not place items such as DIY waste, electrical items, garden waste or recycling into them. This will take up space in the collection vehicles needed for general household rubbish. Click here to find out what can go in your recycling bin. Please refer to your local district, borough or city council website for the latest information about household waste and recycling collections in your area.  

Much of the waste that goes through the Recycling Centres is garden waste, where possible people should compost grass cuttings and hedge trimmings and if you can’t do that keep your garden waste until we reopen. Click here for more information on how to compost at home.

We are working hard to ensure that your household waste services are kept running and thank you for your understanding and for playing your part.
