All nine household recycling centres in Cambridgeshire are moving to summer opening hours today (Monday 1 April).

This means centres will remain open for longer every day for residents to dispose of their household waste. The centres will also be open on Bank holidays, including Easter, operating on Sunday opening hours, so why not hop-over to drop off household bulky items and other recycling waste?

Fun and free family activity sessions are taking place during the Easter Holiday (9, 11 and 16 April, 10am-12pm) to see first-hand what happens to the waste collected from Cambridgeshire homes.

These eggs-traordinary sessions are taking place at Waterbeach Waste Education Centre and will include a tour of the recycling site and a workshop to create an Easter bunny planner and basket out of a plastic bottle.

All participants will also receive Easter eggs and have a chance to win a compost bin on the day.

Sessions are free but as space is limited, booking ahead is essential. Children must be aged 6+ to attend and must be accompanied by an adult. 

Maggie Pratt, Waste Stakeholder Manager at Cambridgeshire County Council said: "Sort your waste before coming to the Household Recycling Centre to save time and make sure you ask if you need help. Our site staff will give you advice so that you can recycle as much as you can.

“Also, our recycling activity days get busy quickly so I encourage families to book their places now!”

The list of Household Recycling Centres and details of opening hours are available here 

Chick out the poster below and book your spaces for the next family activity days by phone on 01223 815490 or email at [email protected].
