Recycling open during jubilee

WHILE many will be celebrating the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee this weekend, Cambridgeshire recycling centres will be open to dispose of party leftovers, rubbish created from DIY jobs and garden waste created by green fingered residents.

The County Council’s centres run by AmeyCespa will be open normal summer Sunday opening times on both Late May Bank Holiday and the Diamond Jubilee Bank Holiday - the March centre will be open from 9am to 4pm and the Wisbech centre from 8am to 5pm

Cllr Mathew Shuter, Cambridgeshire County Councillor for Business and Enterprise said: “If you are planning to use the opportunity this long weekend to have a jubilee party, work in your garden or tackle some DIY task don’t forget your local recycling centre accepts a huge range of items for recycling including garden waste and timber, electrical items, plasterboard, cardboard, metal, and hardcore as well as more commonplace materials such as textiles, glass bottles and metal cans. To make your visit is even easier, separate your waste into different types before you visit your local centre.”
