Recycling in the Community
There are lots of way to boost recycling in your community. See below and also on the menu links on the left.
Recycle more and raise cash for your community
Norfolk County Council pays recycling credits to local councils and community and voluntary groups who collect household rubbish for recycling from within the Norfolk area. Recycling credits are worth £49.07 per tonne and are payable in addition to any money received for selling the recycling to a merchant. Every year, nearly £7 million is spent to support recycling in Norfolk. Please visit www.norfolk.gov.uk/recyclingcredits to find out how to claim, or contact your local council.
Master composter volunteer scheme and community composting
Are you interested in helping others to get composting? Norfolk County Council have recruited a team of volunteers that have been trained to provide information and support to help promote home composting in their local community. For more information visit www.norfolk.gov.uk/compost where you will also find details on community composting schemes.

The Norfolk Community Recycling Advisory Service (NCRAS) is a one stop shop for communities to get free practical and technical advice to help them set up or expand recycling or composting schemes in their local area.
Help could range from guidance about different types of recycling schemes and sources of funding, to information about whether any regulations, licenses, insurance or planning permission might be needed. Visit the website now to see if your community group could benefit.
