Date published: 1st March 2018

Bin collections across North Norfolk have been suspended until next week given the continuing adverse weather conditions.

Although the worst of the snowfall has probably passed, snow drifts have made many roads impassable, and the conditions and sub-zero temperatures are not safe for the collection crews.

Collections are expected to restart on Monday, with priority given to dealing with the black bins.

  • Households due to have their black bins emptied next week should expect a normal service.
  • Households due to have their recycling collected next week will have any remaining black bins dealt with first. These properties should leave any unemptied black bins out for Monday morning, and the crews will deal with them as soon as they can. People who receive these late collections can leave excess rubbish next to their bins – but please leave only a reasonable amount, and make sure it is bagged up.
  • Recycling bins due for collection next week should be left out from Thursday morning.

Kier – the contractor employed by North Norfolk District Council for rubbish collection – is currently looking at how to deal with the backlog of garden and trade waste, and details about this will be announced as soon as they have been finalised.

Further updates will be made via the Council's social-media channels.
