Wereham (Crimplesham) Recycling Centre has re-opened
The re-opening of Docking and Wereham centres will bring the number of sites open to the full complement of 20. NCC have provided details on how the sites will operate on our website here www.norfolk.gov.uk/recyclingupdates and below are some answers to common questions about the sites. NCC will update their website to reflect this.
What measures are NCC taking to protect the health and safety of our customers, staff and the wider community?
Social distancing of 2m and a strict cleaning regime will be in place at all sites, which will be reviewed following guidance on 1m distancing released last week. NCC have limited the number of vehicles allowed into each site at any one time, to give each vehicle enough space to safely empty their waste. NCC asks that residents only bring waste they can remove from their vehicle and deposit in the containers themselves, as staff will not be able to assist.
What type of waste and recycling are we accepting?
NCC are offering as full a service as is possible at this time, including all DIY Pay As You Throw and a trade waste service at their larger sites as usual. Unfortunately, NCC are unable to accept items for reuse.
When is the best time to visit the centre?
NCC expects the busiest times of day to be first thing in the morning, although they have observed that this can vary. Typical queuing times are around 20 minutes, but can be longer. NCC have employed traffic management teams at sites where queuing can be dangerous. If a significant queue develops, then the team may ask residents to return at a later time.

How to Report Fly Tipping
To report incidents of fly tipping, go to the following BCKLWN webpage or click on the link below. You will be asked the location and an approximate description of what has been left. You will be asked to set up and register an account (MyAccount), that you can return to, if necessary.
www.west-norfolk.gov.uk/track_request_with_my_account or click here
Please note that BCKLWN staff can only remove rubbish which has been dumped on council land, public areas, verges or roads (this does not include ditches, dykes or drains). Rubbish dumped on private property/land is the responsibility of the land owner. BCKLWN will not clear the dumped rubbish, however please still report it for their staff to investigate.
Please do not touch or remove any of the dumped rubbish, as this will not help BCKLWN with their investigations.
If you need to report clinical waste i.e. syringes please get in touch with BCKLWN urgently.
If you need to report a burnt out or abandoned car, you will need to complete an abandoned vehicle form.
BCKLWN will need to know the location of the dumped rubbish. On the form you will need to enter a nearby postcode, street name or town to begin. You will then be able to drag the pin on the map to adjust the location of the dumped rubbish.
If the dumped rubbish has recently been reported, a red block will show on the map. To find out more information about when and what was dumped, click on the red block.
If you spot dumped rubbish further along the same road as another block, you don’t need to report it (BCKLWN staff will always drive from one end of the road to the other looking for dumped rubbish).
