South Cambs will collect one transparent sack with recycling (glass in the bin please) and one bundle of cardboard broken down to a size which would fit in the bin if there was space (please tape or tie together).  For a YouTube video of how to do this, click here.

Please do:

  • Place other recycling in one transparent sack. Black sacks and more than one sack will not be collected. Transparent sacks are available online and in supermarkets.
  • Put any glass inside your blue bin, not the sack, for safety reasons.

Please don’t:

  • Leave cardboard out in the rain. Soggy cardboard gets stuck to other materials making it hard to recycle.
