Twelve revolutionary bins are being installed by North Norfolk District Council in Cromer and Wells to reduce litter overspill during busy times.

The ‘smart’ solar-powered litter bins are larger than a traditional street bin and when litter reaches a certain level inside, or at pre-programmed intervals, a hydraulic ram compacts the litter so levels do not overflow.

Restaurant businesses that create high volumes of packaging waste are contributing funds to the NNDC project, including Cromer’s No 1, and Platten’s and French’s fish and chip shops in Wells.
