Excess waste
If you’re finding that your black bin is always full, you can put any extra general waste into a black plastic sack. You must seal each bag with a pink or red tag. These cost £2.05 each and can be purchased using the red tag order form below.
Please put any extra black waste sacks out with your bin on collection day. They will only remove bags that are pink or red-tagged.

Need an extra bin?
They may be able to supply you with an extra bin, depending on the circumstances.

Bulky waste collection

Assisted bin collection service
What is an assisted bin collection?
An assisted collection is when the waste crew collect, empty and return your bins to the storage position at an agreed location on your property.
If you have difficulty moving your wheelie bins yourself, please let them know so that they can arrange for a member of their crew to help out on collection day. The service is designed for anyone who is physically unable to move the wheelie bin for the roadside for us to collect. They can arrange for an assisted collection on a temporary basis, or on a long-term basis depending on your circumstances.

Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plans

Norfolk County Council are working in partnership with local authorities to create a Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP) for Norfolk.

The purpose of the plan is to create a proposed cycling and walking network across the county, and to identify and prioritise improvement schemes which can be delivered over the short, medium and long term. This will enable more people to consider cycling and walking as safe, direct and attractive forms of transport.

Cycling and walking infrastructure plans will play an important part in the delivery of our transport strategy for Norfolk and support the Government’s ambition for “Cycling and walking to be the natural first choice for many journeys with half of all journeys in towns and cities being cycled or walked by 2030”.

The initial Norfolk Cycling and Walking Survey is open from the 5 April to 30 May. Please click on the link below.
