Rogue trader warning

The police have sent the following:
Residents are being urged to be vigilant following reports of suspected rogue traders operating in the county yesterday (9 September).
Police received several calls concerning a man cold calling at address and approaching people in the street trying to sell pressure washers, power tools and diesel generators.
The man was driving a silver transit style van and incidents were reported in Hardley Road and Norwich Road in Chedgrave; the industrial estate in Loddon; Arlington Garderns in Atlleborough; Park Road in Spixworth; Thieves Lane in Salhouse; and Wroxham Road in Coltishall.
Norfolk County Council’s Trading Standards Officers request that residents never agree to buy goods from, or have work done, by someone that calls unannounced at their door, or approaches them on the street.
Often such traders don’t provide full names, trading addresses or contact telephone numbers, resulting in it being virtually impossible to trace them if there are any problems with the work or goods – which is all too often the case.
Anyone with information about suspected rogue traders should contact police on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Changes to your grey bin

From 1 October 2014, glass bottles and jars, plastic food pots, tubs and trays, and cartons, such as those used for soups and juices, will be able to be recycled at the kerbside using the grey recycling bin.

Please ensure that food residue is rinsed off any containers, bottles or jars before placing them loose in the bin. Clean recycling has a greater value and helps prevent bins from becoming smelly and by leaving the items loose in the bin, they can be easily sorted.  Items in bags cannot be sorted effectively by the equipment and may be rejected.
