Waste and Recycling Scheme

Save money with the Norwich BID waste and recycling scheme.

Our waste and recycling initiative aims to improve the recycling rate in Norwich city centre for all dry mixed recyclable goods and food recycling. Under the new system, cardboard, food waste and all dry mixed recyclable goods, including hard and soft plastic, will all be recycled with a zero waste to landfill solution.

We have worked closely with the local business community to understand the needs and priorities for an innovative waste and recycling service and we are working in partnership with local company MW Whites Ltd to deliver cost savings, great service and strong management.

Norwich BID is confident the city centre Waste and Recycling Scheme can save businesses money.

The scheme aims to provide businesses in the city with the following services:

  • An excellent recycling service
  • A general waste collection service at a “significantly” reduced cost
  • A reduction in congestion and pollution in the city centre by reducing the number of waste collections on a weekly basis
  • Minimising business exposure to future land fill tax increases

"We appointed White's once the BID identified them as the preferred waste management supplier for our city. They've been responsive to requests, their service delivery has been excellent and all at a significantly reduced cost." Castle Mall

The scheme has been a great success and we have streamlined and improved trade waste collections within the city centre whilst achieving great cost savings for businesses.
