Bin changes set for South Norfolk residents
From June 6 South Norfolk Council’s waste and recycling routes are set to be reorganised, meaning it is likely residents’ bin collection days will change.
The council will be distributing leaflets to every home in the district, weeks commencing April 18, May 9 and May 30 letting customers know of any changes.
A spokesperson for the council said the changes would result in a more “customer-friendly”, with no future waste collection days on a Monday.
They added: “At the moment there are three facilities where the Council’s vehicles can tip the rubbish collected on their rounds. This will soon be changing due to new County Council disposal contracts and as a result all of their vehicles will have to travel to one refuse disposal point in Costessey.
“This meant that South Norfolk council was going to have to make changes to the rounds and as the Council also knew that the amount of planned housing growth in the district would soon be adding pressures to the waste and recycling routes it made sense to make the changes now.
“The new routes will ensure that the waste and recycling service is as efficient as possible, that it is ready for future demands and that the Council can continue to offer its residents a first class service.”
