Bank holiday bin collection changes

Residents of Cambridge and South Cambridgeshire are being reminded that all bin collections will be one day later than usual next week, following the bank holiday weekend.

The Greater Cambridge Shared Waste Service, a partnership between Cambridge City Council and South Cambridgeshire District Council, will pick up bins scheduled for Friday 11 May on Saturday 12 May.

The schedule returns to normal on Monday 14 May.

Trevor Nicoll, Head of the Greater Cambridge Shared Waste Service, said: “The weather forecast looks promising this Bank Holiday so I’m sure many of us hope to spend some time in the garden and maybe even dig out the BBQ. While enjoying the weather over the long weekend, I’d like to remind residents to recycle as much as possible. Food and garden waste can be placed in your green bin, while mixed dry recycling like tins, cans, aerosols, aluminium foil, cartons, cardboard, paper, jars, bottles and plastic packaging can be recycled in your blue bin. It really helps if containers are empty and rinsed out.”

There is also a wide range of items that can be recycled at Cambridgeshire’s Household Recycling Centres.
