News and Events
Don't forget we can now recycling plastic pots, tubs and trays as well as bottles. For more details see the council web page
Recycling champions are people who think unnecessary waste is a disgrace and that we have better things to do with our precious land than to bury our garbage in it.
All over Cambridge volunteer recycling champions are helping to get people in their communities to recycle more. From helping out at events, signing up to our newsletter to chatting to your neighbours about recycling there’s lots of ways to get involved.
Events coming up
15th February - Promoting Re-cycling with Bi-cycling. We put out about 750 of these covers on students bikes with the recycle for Cambridge website, Facebook group and QR tag. The aim is to get more students recycling and aware of where they can get information about recycling. Look out for the covers around Cambridge!
February - A WEEE Competition
Margaret and Ken promoting the electrical banks in Cherry Hinton
We've been promoting the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment)recycling banks, with the chance to win prizes for using them up until the end of February. CDhampions have been out delivering leaflets and tags to promote the banks around Cambridge. The banks can take any item with a plug or battery that is smaller than 30cm x 30cm. You can find your nearest bank here: https://www.cambridge.gov.uk/find-your-nearest-recycling-point
17th November - A Crafty Charistmas At our stall at Arbury Community Centre we had all sorts of festive ideas for crafty reuse to inspire people to think a bit more about what they use this Christmas.
