A public consultation has begun to let residents have their say on the future of the recycling centres run by Cambridgeshire County Council.
Residents have the chance to give their views on how to create an efficient and cost effective service which needs to contribute to the £149 million in savings required by the county council’s budget over the next five years.
Cllr Peter Roberts, Executive Councillor for Environment, Waste and Public Health, said: “The recycling centres at Milton and Thriplow are well used by Cambridge residents to recycle and dispose of large items which cannot go into their usual bins. I would therefore encourage everyone to take part in the survey to help the county council to shape the future of this service.”
Options being put forward include looking at the location, usage and potential closure of some of the recycling centres across the county; a proposal to charge for certain wastes such as hardcore and plasterboard; and reducing opening days and opening hours at sites.
