Cambridge City Council

Recycling and waste guide for developers

Our full service aims can be found in our planning guide below.

We aim to:

  • Provide a kerbside collection for all existing and new developments
  • Increase our recycling rates by encouraging waste reduction and home composting
  • Make the service efficient, and in turn cost effective which will help to reduce vehicle emissions and our carbon footprint
  • Increase public safety by reducing the amount of reversing and unnecessary vehicle manoeuvres

In all cases, please refer to this Waste and recycling guide for developers [PDF, 3MB] where you will find all the necessary requirements for recycling and waste provisions for all development sizes. This is tailored to our waste collection service.
