Norfolk County Council is re-opening eight of its larger recycling centres on Monday 11 May so that Norfolk householders can dispose of waste and recycling that may have built up at home and has started to pose a health and safety risk since the Government announced its ‘lockdown’ measures.

To manage demand and help ensure safe operations, the centres will offer a restricted service and:
• Require social distancing of two metres by all customers
• Operate on a managed one in one out basis for cars
• Only allow two adults out of a car to unload their waste
• Assistance will not be offered to help empty cars
• Be aimed at cars and car derived vans only to manage demand on the service
• Provide for the disposal and recycling of the main waste streams including green waste, general waste and charged for DIY type construction and demolition waste
