New Bins at Ranworth Staithe – Boat Users Only!

This year Broadland District Council are using the Green Wheelie Bins at Ranworth Staithe, rather than the compactors we have seen in previous years.

This change concerns the Broads area as a whole and we are asking residents to be vigilant to the misuse of the bins so as to preserve the beautiful village which we are all proud of.

We are already aware that items are being placed in the bins that are not from boats, and would like to emphasize that these bins are not for resident use, but for boat users on the staithe.

If you would like to make us aware of any issues with the green wheelie bins, please email Woodbastwickpc@gmail.com or contact Broadland District Council direct to make them away of any flytipping.

Thank you.
