Help East Cambs District Council Recyle - Recycling reminder

As we are all working hard to help the planet by recycling more, ECDC thought it was a good opportunity to refresh people of what can and can’t be put into the blue and green lidded bins.

Click here for the list.

Please remember to give your bottles and tins a quick rinse under the tap before putting them into your bin. We don’t want them to contaminate the lorry and be rejected when they arrive at the Materials Recycling Facility in Waterbeach.  The facility can process mixed recyclable materials from households using Eleven different types of equipment to sort the materials  including suction systems, magnets and a glass breaker.

Once separated, the different items can then be baled up on site and sent off for recycling.

The material from the green lidded bins is presented for composting also at the Waterbeach Waste Management Park.

For more information please contact the East Cambs Street Scene Team 01353 665555 or email
