Swanky new bin storage units have been introduced as part of a council scheme.

The trial, being run by Norwich City Council, shows the new approach to communal bin areas in Douro Place, Knowland Grove and Gristock Place.

The initiative, part of the Love Norwich campaign, aims to ease the bin-day burden and make recycling accessible and quick while improving the aesthetic of the area.

The bins are fully enclosed and feature slots for each material providing more spacing in shared recycling areas with the hope of curbing clutter.
