Changes to bin collections following Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s State Funeral

13 September 2022

Bin collections for residents of Cambridge City and South Cambridgeshire will take place one day later than usual next week. This is to reflect the fact that the State Funeral following the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will take place on Monday 19 September – which will be a Bank Holiday.

The collection scheduled for Friday 23 September will take place on Saturday 24 September. Bin collections will return to their normal schedule on Monday 26 September.

Household bin collections across South Cambridgeshire and Cambridge City are carried out by the Greater Cambridge Shared Waste Service, a partnership between South Cambridgeshire District and Cambridge City Councils.
