North Norfolk District Council is distributing recycling sacks to those areas, mainly in the west of the district, where recycling bins were not collected last week.

NNDC has contacted a number of community locations, all of which have agreed to act as collection points from which local residents can collect a small supply of clear sacks in which they can leave their extra recyclables next week.

NNDC is very grateful to these locations for their support and assistance. They are listed below:

* NNDC Offices, Holt Road, Cromer, NR27 9EN

* North Norfolk Information Centre, Meadow Road, Cromer

* Holt Town Council Offices, Kerridge Way, Holt, NR25 6DN.– open 10am until 12pm from Monday to Friday.

* Wells Post Office, Station Road, Wells, NR23 1AA.

* Sheringham Town Council, Town Hall, Church Street. Open Monday, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9am until 12pm.

* Fakenham Connect, Oak Street, Fakenham, NR21 9DY.

* The Village Store Weybourne, 2 Beach Lane, Holt, Norfolk, NR25 7AH.

* Blakeney Parish Council, Langham Road – open Tuesday and Thursday from 9am until 11am.

* Great Ryburgh Village Shop, 1 The Granary, Station Road, Great Ryburgh, NR21 0TG.

* High Kelling Stores, Cromer Road, High Kelling, NR25 6AJ.

Residents in these areas who missed their recycling collection last week and who therefore will not have their recycling bins collected until their due date after 28 January, will be able to collect up to four sacks from the above locations during their normal opening hours, in which they can place additional recycling waste.

The full sacks will be collected if they are placed by the green recycling bin on the normal day of collection.

NNDC thanks residents for their patience and understanding during the past few days inclement weather.

Work this week (including Saturday) will concentrate on clearing up the backlog of general waste (grey bin) collections.

It is hoped, weather permitting, that the collection of all general waste, recycling and garden bins in North Norfolk will be back to the normal schedule from January 28.


  • Same as Yarmouth.

  • Breckland council are just the same. Nothing heard from them. I only found out because I looked at their website what they planned to do and they advise residents to check the website or social media for updates. Not great for those members of the community who do not access to the internet

  • Breckland also had a huge backlog problem and their answer today was to take the whole lot, recycling and refuse, in the same dustcart. At least our frontage looks normal again now and we have empty bins at last, but if only we'd known they were going to do that we could have emptied the house of all the paper, card and plastic waste that has accumulated in plastic sacks over the last fortnight!. Anyway, thanks lads for a dirty job done in nasty conditions.

  • At least NNDC have informed their residents, unlike Norwich City Council, as no one seems to know what is going on, as the pavements are littered with uncollected bins and no one seems to know when they are going to be collected, what a mess.
