The survey, which will run from 4 February to 5 March 2012, should take no longer than ten minutes for people to complete.

About Norfolk's Recycling CentresNorfolk's network of 20 Recycling Centres help to boost the county's recycling rates and stop rubbish being sent to landfill (which is very expensive because of landfill tax and damages the environment). Last year they handled about 70,000 tonnes - or 18% - of all household waste, and about 70% of that was recycled.
They have also changed. Brand new purpose-built sites have been developed at King’s Lynn and Dereham, and new replacement centres are planned for Thetford and Caister in 2013. Reuse Shops and Pay As You Throw – a low cost option for getting rid of rubbish like DIY waste – have also been introduced.
New site equipment, like low level bins, make them easier for people to use. To find out more about Norfolk’s Recycling Centres please visit www.norfolk.gov.uk/recyclingcentres. For more information about your household waste and recycling collection service please contact your district council.
