Household Recycling Centres & Recycling Points

We can only recycle items listed on the Green bin page.  If you have recyclable material or excess waste that cannot be collected through our kerbside collection service you may be able to dispose of your items at one of Norfolk County Council's Household Waste Recycling Centres.


The centres are owned and operated by Norfolk County Council.


Seven of the largest recycling centers in Norfolk now also accept commercial waste at a charge. This includes Kings Lynn.
