New communal recycling areas have opened at eight tower blocks in Norwich in a bid to boost recycling rates.

The centres have been set up outside Normandy, Winchester, Markham, Seaman, Aylmer, Ashbourne, Burleigh and Compass towers in the city.

Residents can now recycle plastic bottles, paper, card and cans, with separate containers for glass and food waste.

The bins have been screened after residents raised concerns during consultation with Norwich City Council.

Councillor Mike Stonard, portfolio holder for waste and recycling, said: “Our aim is to get everyone in Norwich recycling so we need to make it as easy for them as possible.

“Installing communal bins at the tower blocks is part of our project to provide easy to access recycling for everyone across the city.”

  • It is "Normandie Tower", not "Normandy Tower".
