Bin collections in West Norfolk will be delayed by a day next week because of the Spring Bank Holiday.

And, ahead of the long weekend, council chiefs are urging residents to sign up for a scheme that offers benefits for recycling more.

West Norfolk Council launched Recycling Rewards last month and, over the coming weeks, will be sending leaflets to householders urging them to join in.

Council leader Brian Long said: “The scheme is a great opportunity for everyone to earn rewards for changing their behaviour by reducing their waste and increasing their recycling.

“We all need to start taking more personal responsibility for the waste we produce, and the scheme is a fantastic reminder that we need to protect our planet by reducing our use of natural resources and recycling more carefully.”
