Neighbourhood Recycling Centres

All residents are able to recycle their glass, tins, cans, foil, aerosols, plastic bottles, plastic pots, tubs and trays and paper at neighbourhood recycling centres.
We ask that you don’t bring your cardboard and that this is taken to the main recycling centre at Witchford. Alternatively, you can leave your cardboard in your blue kerbside bin. 
East Cambridgeshire has 5 neighbourhood recycling centres across the district:
  • Tesco, Ely - CB7 4DJ
  • Waitrose, Ely - CB7 4QJ
  • Fountain Lane, Soham - CB7 5ED
  • Recreation Ground, Cheveley - CB8 9DG 
  • The Village Hall, Chippenham - CB7 5PN
These sites are collected by the Street Scene Team twice weekly.
