Recycling – Clean, Dry and Don’t Bag It

As part of the Norfolk Waste Partnership, Broadland District Council has launched a householder campaign aimed at reducing the amount of contamination in Norfolk’s household recycling bins.

In terms of recycling, contamination refers to the type of material put in recycling bins and the quality of that material.

This campaign’s primary focus is to let residents know the ‘3 simple rules’ to recycling: Clean, Dry and Don’t Bag It. The campaign also reminds residents about what can and cannot be put in kerbside recycling bins.

The campaign is called ‘Give your Recycling a Little bit of Love’.

So what is it all about? – Regardless of where people live in Norfolk or what colour their wheeled bin happens to be, the rules of recycling are the same across Norfolk i.e. every household can recycle the same materials and items placed in recycling bins must be ‘Clean, Dry and Loose’.
