We are sorry to say that some green bins have not been emptied today in Trumpington on the following streets:

Beech Drive, Martin Road,Cedar Road,Harness close,Barn Road,Glebe Farm Drive,Tebbit Street,Elm road,Spinney Road

We apologise for the inconvenience caused. If you are affected, please leave your bins accessible on the kerbside for collection and a crew will return as soon as possible.

Bin collection days changed for 80% of households in Cambridge and South Cambridgeshire on 27 February. Thank you to all residents for your assistance in helping us adapt to our new rounds, which have been introduced to:

  • Drive 20,000 miles less per year on collection rounds
  • Contribute to savings of £700k over three years
  • Provide a service that reflects the growth and pace of change in the area

Our bin crews are out collecting more than 30,000 bins each weekday, and many are learning new routes, so we apologise for missing some bins since the changes were introduced.
