As a private boater I can dump my rubbish at Horstead, Coltishall, Wroxham, Horning, Ranworth and Ludham bridge.
Do people know of other bin sites?

Hire Yards must step up to the plate
As a once a year hirer paying almost £2000 for my weeks holiday, the thought that I may now be required to store my rubbish until I return to my home yard is ridiculous, sometimes we have young grandchildren on board, with dirty nappies etc, this as well as rotting food could mean there is a potential health issue. As is the case on dry land, the act of fly tipping is now for some citizens the solution to the problem of the authorities withdrawal of adequate rubbish clearing, I fear this maybe the case in the peak season on the Broads, and that would be a disaster for the industry, if enforcement eventually caused a significant downturn in Hiring's because of it, maybe the time has come for the hire yards themselves to sort this problem out. The same way as they have arranged that Hirers can moor free at each others yards, perhaps they could arrange for their hirers to deposit rubbish at each others yards under a similar agreement. Or is that already the case ?

Due to cuts in funding, many Broads-based councils and parishes will not longer pay for the removal of refuse from staithes and BA managed moorings. What is BA going to do to alleviate the pressure on the few remaining disposal sites?

The local council have agreed to keep the bins at Womack Water, at least for the rest of this season.

Hi Richard,

The costs of replacing all the local council facilities in the Broads would be between £70,000 and £80,000 per year. The problems with waste collection in the area has been discussed with the Broads Forum and the Navigation Committee and there has been a consensus that these costs should not be picked up by toll payers.

In the meeting of the Navigation Committee in October 2014 when we discussed this year's budget (2016/17) the Members did not support making financial provision for waste collection when setting the tolls.

The Authority now provides the facilities at Ranworth, and has increased the number of bins/ collection frequency Great Yarmouth Yacht Station and Norwich last season, which is costing an additional approximately £5,000 - £6,0000 per year. We have also installed a new solar powered compactor bin at Ranworth as a trial of this technology.

£80k per year would be about 5,700 trade waste empties (1100 ltr skip) per year, that sounds like a lot of rubbish for the number of collection points that are on the Broads.

The estimated tonnage for the four councils in 2013-14 was 329.  I'll let the clever ones work out how many bins that would fill.

The disposal recharge for those councils for 2014-15 was estimated at £39K.

Just a thought - if the facility is being abused by commercial establishments etc , why not offer a similar service by barge ( as in Potter Heigham ) and publish where and when a rubbish barge will be available .

If any dumped rubbish bags are found / seen  dumped on the river banks, then do we call the BA to send a Ranger to collect, as the Councils do not have river transport to collect from the banks.  Or do they ?
