How does the assisted collection work?
The crew will come onto your property on collection days, collect your bins from your front garden, empty your bins and return the bin to your front garden so you won’t need to put your bins out. If you do not have a front garden, please contact them so they can agree a suitable collection point. Assisted Collections
South Norfolk Council assisted bin collection is only available when:- There are no able-bodied persons living in the property with you and you are registered disabled or you are elderly or infirm or you have a physical medical condition meaning you are unable to move your bins or you struggle to remember your bin collection day due to mental illness.
Can be provided for extra capacity for those households who need it. Additional Bins
A 240-litre rubbish bin should provide enough capacity for the two weeks between collections. You must meet certain criteria to qualify for this additional capacity.
South Norfolk Council will provide a larger recycling bin free of charge as they are keen to encourage recycling as much as possible; please remember the recycling must be clean, dry and not bagged.
