We will be bringing forward plans for a new Household Recycling Centre (HRC) at Milton, to replace the current facility which must close by 2026 under its existing planning consent.

Find out more about our plans here.


There are nine Household Recycling Centres (HRCs) in Cambridgeshire. They are managed by Amey under contract to Cambridgeshire County Council.

HRCs are provided for Cambridgeshire residents to bring their household waste.

Further information about disposing of waste, as well as our policies, can be found on our Waste and Recycling webpages.
