Recycle For Norfolk

Recycle for Norfolk, is the public-facing brand of the Norfolk Waste Partnership (NWP); a partnership of Norfolk’s County, District, Borough and City councils working together to improve waste and recycling services for Norfolk’s residents and visitors.

The NWP has four strategic objectives:

  • Reduce the amount of waste generated per household
  • Increase the availability of waste reduction, reuse, repair and recycling activities
  • Ensure residents and businesses understand the importance of waste as a resource and the range of opportunities for waste reduction, repair, reuse and recycling
  • Reduce the overall system cost of dealing with Norfolk’s household waste

These will be measured by:

  • A reduction in the cost of delivering waste collection and waste treatment/disposal services
  • A reduction in the total amount of waste generated
