Litter bins

We have litter bins throughout the borough. We empty the bins in King's Lynn and Downham Market main town centres. Bins in Hunstanton and the villages throughout west Norfolk are emptied by Kier. You can contact them on 01553 776676. 

You can help us by:

  • being tidy with your litter and chewing gum
  • using litter-bins and encouraging others to use them
  • recycling paper, bottles, cans, clothing and household furniture

Dog waste bins

We provide dog waste bins in King's Lynn, Downham Market and Hunstanton. These are emptied twice a week.

Parish Councils provide dog waste bins within their parish boundary, and are responsible for emptying these.
