Recycling Centres & Recycling Banks

Norfolk County Council provides two Recycling Centres within easy reach of our village.
Worsted Recycling Centre is just the other side of North Walsham whilst the one at Sheringham is a twenty minute journey.

Compost is available for purchase at both recycling centres, for £3.50 a bag which are hand-filled to approximately 40 litres.
You can pay with cash (up to £10), credit and debit card (chip and pin and contactless).

Assistance dogs are permitted at both sites.

NCCs recycling centres are organised using separate containers for different materials, eg bins for cardboard, scrap metal, timber and garden waste, and staff will help you, if asked, to find the right place to put your waste but they are not obliged to lift items.   They may also offer advice which must be followed for health and safety reasons.

All the centres have wide access and no barriers, so any domestic car, van, trailer etc. will be able to gain access and can usually get within two metres of the containers.

For safety, children should be kept in your vehicle while you are at the recycling centre and you should wear suitable clothing, footwear and gloves when visiting the site.
