Following the announcement of the requirement for the people who are particularly vulnerable to ‘shield’ themselves Broadland District Council has set up Community hubs. These have been further reduced down to geographic areas. Aylsham is in Area 2 along with the villages of Blickling, Burgh & Tuttington, Marsham and Oulton.
The food packages should be available soon and distribution will start towards the end of the week.
Recycling centres shut
All Norfolk recycling centres will be closed after 24 March until further notice due to coronavirus.
The safety of customers and staff is very important, therefore in accordance with current government coronavirus guidelines of avoiding non-essential contact and preventing a risk of infection to others, the sites will be closed. It is essential that we do all we can to slow down the spread of the virus.
Much of the waste that goes through the recycling centres is bulky waste (large items such as furniture, wood and metals) and garden waste. People should hold onto these items until the sites reopen. Do not put any electrical items in any of your bins at home.
Where possible you should compost grass cuttings and hedge trimmings. If you can’t do that keep your garden waste until we reopen.
Please do not leave any waste outside the recycling centres – leaving waste outside the centres or anywhere else is classed as fly tipping and is a criminal offence for which people will be prosecuted.
