Find a recycling point

This map shows the recycling points in Cambridge. Full information about what can be recycled at each point is listed below the map.

There are also household recycling centres (‘tips’) at Milton and Thriplow.

The recycling point at Osprey Drive is closed until further notice, due to technical problems with the underground banks. We apologise for any inconvenience this causes.
