Household recycling strategy and policies
The Household Waste Recycling Service Strategy.pdf sets out our strategy for providing a household recycling service to the residents of Cambridgeshire for items that are not collected at the kerbside.
The Recycling Centres Customer Policies.pdf will be reviewed and updated as part of the options work under taken as a result of the Household Recycling Service Strategy, above.
Buying items from recycling centres
Some items taken to recycling centres are available for sale. Please speak to the site staff if you wish to purchase something.
Selling items at the recycling centres
The contractors who operate all our recycling centres have salvage rights over any waste that is deposited at these sites. This income is put towards the day to day running costs of the centre which means costs are kept down for the council and taxpayers.
Soil-improving compost available to buy from recycling centres
40 litre bags of soil-improving compost made from Cambridgeshire's garden waste can be bought at recycling centres (apart from Milton) for £2.50 each. Our contractors AmeyCespa also provide soil improver free of charge to the public at all three of the County's transfer stations. Customers must bring their own bags and shovels to load their vehicles.
