Mayton Wood Recycling Centre and Reuse Shop


Little Hautbois, Nr Coltishall NR12 7JX - find us on Google maps

Opening times

Our recycling centres may not always be open - check the recycling centre closures page for updates on which ones are closed before you visit.

Open daily 9am - 4pm

Mayton Wood Recycling Centre will be closed from 1 December 2023. The decision was taken by cabinet at it's meeting on 2 October 2023, to move operations to Norwich North Recycling Centre. This recycling centre is a large modern site, without the need for steps and with a purpose-built reuse shop. The other nearest alternative site is Worstead Recycling Centre.

This recycling centre may be periodically closed for periods of up to 30 mins during opening hours. This is due to health and safety whilst service vehicles empty or change the bins.


Off the B1150, when approaching Horstead from Norwich on the North Walsham Road turn left immediately before the Recruiting Sergeant pub. Stay on this road for about two miles. Don't turn off to follow signs to Aylsham. The recycling centre is signposted and shares access with a landfill site.
