The household recycling centres will close at 1pm on Christmas Eve and will be closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.  A booking system is now in place at all sites so if you are planning on visiting between Christmas and the New Year, book a slot today.  Visit www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk for more information.

Christmas Tree Recycling

We are supporting East Anglia’s Children’s Hospice again this year who will be collecting real Christmas trees for recycling on Saturday 15th January 2022.

To check availability and book your slot visit

just-helping.org.uk/register-tree

Donations received from the Christmas tree collection provide vital funds for your hospice and other local charities.

Real trees can be placed by the side of the garden bin on collection day.  If the tree is bigger than the bin we ask that it is chopped in half.

The Household Recycling Centres will also take Christmas trees.

We will be informing residents of these changes via a bin hanger which will be placed on grey bins in December.  There will be a full page of advice in the Hunts Post.
