Alternatives to visiting Household Recycling Centres

Bulky waste collections

If you are unable to bring bulky items to a Household Recycling Centre your district council can collect them for a fee.

Recycling banks

Recycling Banks are located across Cambridgeshire so that you don’t have to go as far to recycle your waste. Recycling banks accept items such as textiles, electrical items, books and shoes.

Composting at home

You can help the environment, improve your garden and save money by composting at home.
