Recycling centres

Winter opening times for Household Waste Recycling Centres (tidy tips)

This year the clocks will change at 2am on Sunday 29 October, going back by one hour.

Whilst, for most, that signals the start of winter, we wanted to remind you that our Household Waste Recycling Centre (tidy tip) opening times do not change. They will be open 7 days a week from 9am to 5pm.

It’s a good idea to pre-sort your waste and arrive at least 15 minutes before closing time to allow enough time to unload. Please note that we won’t accept waste after 4:50pm.

The only changes to opening times happen around Christmas, but we will remind you about those closer to the time.

You can check addresses for our four tidy tips plus what they do and don’t accept on our website.

Recycling – Clean, Dry and Don’t Bag It

As part of the Norfolk Waste Partnership, Broadland District Council has launched a householder campaign aimed at reducing the amount of contamination in Norfolk’s household recycling bins.

In terms of recycling, contamination refers to the type of material put in recycling bins and the quality of that material.

This campaign’s primary focus is to let residents know the ‘3 simple rules’ to recycling: Clean, Dry and Don’t Bag It. The campaign also reminds residents about what can and cannot be put in kerbside recycling bins.

The campaign is called ‘Give your Recycling a Little bit of Love’.

So what is it all about? – Regardless of where people live in Norfolk or what colour their wheeled bin happens to be, the rules of recycling are the same across Norfolk i.e. every household can recycle the same materials and items placed in recycling bins must be ‘Clean, Dry and Loose’.

Local Police Inspector

The following is a Police Connect message.
I am Lisa Hooper and I am one of the two Local Policing Inspectors for the Broadland District. I am based at Sprowston and I am responsible for the delivery of local policing to the communities of Sprowston, Old Catton, Acle, Wroxham, Blofield, Brundall, Lingwood, Rackheath and of course all the smaller villages around them!

I have been a police officer for 21 years, and have prior to coming to Broadland I had been the Local Policing Inspector for Norwich City Centre, Thorpe Hamlet and Mile Cross. I have only recently moved out of the Broadland area myself, and most of my family live here so I know it well, and it is important to me that local communities are very satisfied with the policing they receive.

Broadland is home to around 126,000 people and my mission is to ensure you receive a first class service when you need us, and also to make sure we are dealing with the local issues which cause you the most concern. We have Safer Neighbourhood Action Panels covering every town and village, so there is always an opportunity for people to get in touch with us and tell us about the things that are happening locally so that we and our partners can work together to ensure Broadland remains one of the safest and happiest places to live in the UK. If you want to get in touch with us you can email us at SNTSprowston@norfolk.pnn.police.uk, SNTThorpeStAndrew@norfolk.pnn.police.uk and SNTAcle@norfolk.pnn.police.uk You can follow us on Facebook and Twitter @BroadlandPolice or you can call 101 and ask to speak to Engagement Officer PC Andy Mason or the local Beat Manager
