Avoid causing fires by safely disposing of batteries. Find out why this is important and what happens when a battery explodes on our Battery disposal page.
Children under the age of 12
When visiting any Household Recycling Centre within Cambridgeshire residents are reminded that all children under the age of 12 must remain within the vehicle whilst it is on-site. Children aged 12 and over are allowed to assist with moving items from the vehicle to the relevant containers provided they remain under the close control of their parents or carers.
Before visiting the Household Recycling Centre please Check whether your vehicle or trailer requires an e-permit(applies to commercial-type vehicles or any trailer in excess of 1.5m length (excluding the towing mechanism) or over 570 litre capacity).
Remember to also check that the material you are bringing to site is accepted, see: What can I take to a Household Recycling Centre - Cambridgeshire County Council
Driver and van services
Please note that ‘Driver and van’ services are not permitted at any site, but self-drive hire vehicles are allowed, (if within maximum vehicle size limits) as long as the waste producer is present.
Please remember that opening times at all Household Recycling Centres will change on 1 October 2023 – please see your nearest centre for specific opening times.
Vehicles and trailers requiring e-permits must still have these in place before visiting sites.
