In June 2023 an innovative initiative was launched bringing benefits to levy-paying businesses in Kings Lynn. Businesses will now be able to access exclusive rates for their commercial waste collections. This will help businesses save on their waste management costs, whilst ensuring their waste is treated and recycled responsibly.
Anglian Waste Recycling, a prominent player in East Anglia's waste management and recycling sector, have partnered with Discover King’s Lynn Business Improvement District (BID). The partnership, that is set to span the next five years, seeks to minimise waste created in the Kings Lynn area being sent to landfill and increase recycling rates by Anglian Waste Recycling managing and processing the waste collected.
In addition to the discounted rates, all clients are invited to receive a free, no obligation waste audit. This allows us to analyse their waste data against their waste targets and identify areas to help them achieve goals to combat environmental change and reduce waste costs. This is a huge benefit for BID members, and one we hope they will take full advantage of!
Vicky Etheridge, BID Manager for Discover King’s Lynn, commented: “We’re thrilled to be partnering up with Anglian Waste Recycling for this exciting sustainability project which will help reduce the amount of waste we send to landfill from the Kings Lynn area. This will give business owners in the area the chance to responsibly manage their waste!”
Kings Lynn BID levy payers will have access to exclusive rates for commercial waste collections and are able to request a complimentary, no obligation waste audit. This partnership will also enable the tracking of waste data within the BID area, this data will serve as a benchmark, enabling the team to chart substantial reductions in waste over subsequent years.

Ryan Marshall, Senior Environmental & Waste Manager for Anglian Waste Recycling, commented:
“I am particularly passionate about the waste data we are set to capture; this will allow us to reduce waste across King’s Lynn, increase recycling performances and provide detailed reports on the progress. Our mission is to responsibly dispose of waste collected from customers and help them reach a zero-to-landfill goal.
Environmental sustainability is a crucial element of any good waste management programme. As well as being able to make a real difference to the environment in the county in which we live and work, winning the contract will also ensure employment opportunities in this sector stay in Norfolk. It is a great opportunity for all involved.”
