We need a new household waste recycling centre for Norwich by 2021 and want your ideas on the types of services you'd like to see.

Why your views matter

Our contract expires with Mile Cross Recycling Centre in 2021. As the site is not owned by the County Council we need to find a new recycling centre.

We'd like to see a new site that makes reuse and recycling easy for residents and improves how much waste is reused or recycled in Norfolk.

We'd therefore like your early thoughts and ideas on the services you'd expect to see in a new site to help us shape our design and make decisions about a future site. We'll be carrying out further consultation once we secure a preferred site and start work on the design.
