Bin caddies and recycling stations
Recent visitors to Holkham, Pinewoods holiday park or the Wells Beach area may have spotted our bin bays and recycling stations, showing you what to throw away where. Wherever possible, we prioritise using compostables, with majority of our food and drink being served in compostable packaging and cups.
This compostable packaging and food waste is taken to Envar’s in-vessel composting site at St Ives, Cambridgeshire. There, the waste will go through various stages, ultimately forming a compost which is high in nutrients and suitable for agriculture, building developments and horticulture including being spread on the kitchen garden in the Walled Garden.
When visiting Holkham, we would be grateful if you could separate your waste correctly. Use our guides on the bins to help or ask a member of our team if you’re unsure.
