In light of the Prime Minister’s announcement last night, the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Councils have decided that all recycling centres across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough will be closed from today (Tuesday) until further notice.

The Councils note that the decision to close sites has not been taken lightly but it is essential to encourage residents to stay at home and limit the spread of Coronavirus. The following information is provided, and your support is requested: 

If you were planning to visit a recycling centre, please hold on to the items you were planning to take until they are reopened.

During this time, residents are requested to act responsibly and not place items such as DIY waste, garden waste, or recycling into their kerbside general rubbish collection. This will take up space in the collection vehicles needed for general household rubbish. Try to limit your food waste by home composting and using your freezer. If you have food waste it can be disposed of in your general waste bin.

Asbestos service: The Councils have suspended the service and is notifying all those with a current permit that the transfer stations are closed to the public. 

Charity Permits: The County Council will email all those with a charity permit that the HRCs are closed and not go to any transfer station.
