Cambridgeshire residents urged to recycle their Bank Holiday waste.

There are nine recycling centres around the county which are open all weekend, and on the Bank Holidays. Visit or call 0345 045 5207 to find out when your nearest recycling centre is open over the Easter holidays.

Make sure you check your recycling and waste collection dates over the Bank Holiday and  the following week by looking at your collection calendar or by visiting your local council’s website  at As a top tip, try to buy chocolate eggs in packaging that can be recycled locally and don’t forget that the foil, cardboard and some plastics can be put in your recycling bin.
