Welcome to Waste & Recycling

Black Bag Delivery 2016

East Cambridgeshire households will soon receive a roll of 52 refuse sacks, which are intended to last until the next distribution in 1 year’s time. No further sacks will be issued until then, but additional refuse will be collected if presented for collection in suitable black refuse sacks provided by householders.

East Cambs are proud to be part of the Recycling in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough (RECAP) Partnership, which was granted Beacon Council for waste and recycling 2006/07.  Beacon status is awarded to authorities who have shown innovation or achievement in specific fields.

AmeyCespa have recently taken over the contract to collect tins and cans from the bring sites in the district. In order to reduce the number of banks at sites they have combined these with the existing plastic bottle banks.
