Whittlesey Waste Recycling Centre

Provided by:
Cambridgeshire County Council

The county’s Household Recycling Centres (HRCs) will be open from Monday 11 May for residents who have essential waste that cannot be stored safely at home.

The recycling centres will open their doors for their usual summer opening hours.

Think before you visit

  • Only visit if it is essential - Residents should only visit a Household Recycling Centre if essential and if you cannot minimise your waste, store it at home safely, or use alternative kerbside or bulky waste collections. Further Government advice is here (paragraph 1.1).
  • Covid-19 infected waste - You must not bring any waste which could be infected with Covid-19. This includes disposed of PPE waste or general household waste if you have been suffering from Covid-19 symptoms. These bags should be placed into another bag, tied securely and kept separate from other waste. This should be put aside for at least 72 hours before being disposed of in your kerbside collection.
  • Do not attend if you or your household are suffering from Covid-19 symptoms - If you or anyone in your home have related symptoms or are suffering from Covid-19 you must not visit any of the Household Recycling Centres under any circumstances.
  • Vans/trailers/permit holders - Access will initially only be allowed for permit holders that pre-book visits via our online booking system from Monday 1 June. The first visits will take place from Wednesday 3 June. Please don’t use the Household Recycling Centres unless you have both an e-permit and have successfully booked a slot through the on line booking system. Please check if your vehicle requires a permit.
  • Are you a Cambridgeshire resident? - Please note that the Household Recycling Centres are for the use of Cambridgeshire residents only. If you need to visit the site, please bring proof of your address (utility bill, council tax bill, driving licence or similar) in case you are asked to provide it.
  • Please avoid peak times - Our traffic management is unable to allow excessive queuing, so you may be turned away and asked to return later if it is busy. To try and avoid this, we ask residents to plan their journeys away from the anticipated peak times of 9am to 10am, noon until 1pm and the hour before closing.

For further information, please see our Household Recycling Centres page.
