Right Thing Right Bin; Getting recycling right in Sprowston

The Broadland Recycling Team have started a recycling project on the area surrounding Atlantic Avenue estate in Sprowston that addresses recycling behaviours.

They hope to engage residents in the recycling process and to encourage the right things going in the right bin. The project includes the trial of an indoor container to store and sort recycling, ensuring that more clean, dry and loose recyclables are going into the larger kerbside recycling bin.

As part of the project, the Recycling Team will be sending out weekly info-graphics over the next 12 weeks to shed light on some of the processes that occur beyond the recycling bin. Different themes will include recycling contamination, how your recycling is sorted, and various “Life of your Recycling” of specific items. To find out more visit Right Thing Right Bin

Residents can also sign up to an email campaign that will include 6 emails over 12 weeks. Each newsletter will include games and recycling facts, and the chance to win £20 Love to Shop vouchers.

Please contact recyclingofficer@broadland.gov.uk if you live in the trial area and would like to sign up to the email campaign.
