Cromer, Sea Palling and Mundesley and have improved recycling and waste collection facilities in a project funded by North Norfolk District Council.

A range of different designs of bin have been installed at the coastal resorts in advance of the extra pressure of the summer tourism season. New solar bins are also being trailed in Wells.

The improved recycling and waste collection facilities have been introduced in response to the changing demand in types of litter, especially fast-food packaging. Each style of bin has been chosen for specific reasons – whether it is to aid recycling (a condition of the Blue Flag scheme), deal with large volumes of waste in remote locations or to improve the appearance of facilities.

Angie Fitch-Tillett, Cabinet Member for Environmental Services said: “Managing the waste and recycling in public places is vital, especially as we approach the summer season. Assessing the changing needs of our communities and listening to feedback means the Council can deliver a better service.”
