Fly Tipping Advice & Recycling Centres

Fly-Tipping is illegal and if you witness someone in the act, call the police on 999 and report it as a crime in progress. All instances should also be reported to the District Council.  Include as much detail as possible – outlined in the picture below.

DO NOT put yourself at risk. If you witness fly-tipping in progress, keep yourself safe by staying out of the way. DO NOT confront the perpetrator(s). DO NOT touch the waste.

Household Recycling Centres across Peterborough & Cambridgeshire will be collecting waste from Monday 11th May. In our district there are three sites which will be reopening to the public at Bluntisham, St Neots and Alconbury.  Many of you will have waste and recycling built up over the past few weeks that you will be keen to get rid of. Despite what may be seen as a reopening of the Centres, it is important to acknowledge and spread the message that they are open for only essential visits, which means that the storage of waste within the home is causing health and safety issues; there will also be restricted access, no assistance for those disposing of waste and of course, social distancing protocol and the COVID-19 risk.

The following restrictions will be in place:
No vans/trailers that require a permit allowed

Parking bays limited to 5 cars at a time
Opening times 08:00 to 17:00hrs 7 days a week.

Parking bays limited to 6 cars at a time
Opening times 08:00 to 17:00hrs 7 days a week.

St Neots
Parking bays limited to 6 cars at a time
Opening times 08:00 to 18:00hrs 7 days a week.

 Be careful when disposing of waste and if employing individuals to do so on your behalf. 
Long queues are expected at all sites. Full details are on CCC’s website.

Message From Your County Councillor: E-Permit Scheme For Recycling

From October 2019, you will need an e-permit to dispose of household waste at any of the nine CCC Household Recycling Centres using a commercial-type vehicle or any trailer in excess of 1.5m length (excluding the towing mechanism) or 570 litre capacity. E-permits are free of charge and will only be issued to Cambridgeshire residents on a per household basis. The e-permit allows a maximum of 12 visits to a site within a 12 month period. If you use up your allowance, you will have to wait until the 12 month period has passed to renew your e-permit.
A vehicle that requires a permit and is towing a trailer of any accepted size will count as two visits if they both contain waste.

Residents without internet access can obtain a permit by telephoning 0345 045 5207.
