Annual Recycling Open Day: Saturday 13th July


We would like to thank you and residents throughout Cambridgeshire for recycling 54% of your waste. This puts us well above the national average of 39% and on track to meeting our target of 60% by 2020.


You may have heard recent news of problems at the Mechanical Biological Treatment (MBT) plant in Waterbeach. This machine was built to separate and process ‘black bag’ waste in Cambridgeshire. When working, the plant pulls out items which can be processed to reduce the volume of waste sent to landfill by half, whilst also capturing greenhouse gas emissions. Unfortunately, part of the turning equipment for this machine suffered serious mechanical failure in September 2012. Work is underway to manufacture the new parts required to rebuild the machinery and to prepare the plant for installation, which is due to be completed before the end of 2013. The breakdown at the MBT only affects how ‘black bag’ waste is dealt with, so please continue to recycle as much as possible through your normal household recycling service, which is collected and processed in the usual way. Recycling as much as possible reduces both the amount of waste going to landfill and demand on natural resources. We would like to reassure you that the PFI contract the County Council has in place with the MBT contractor means the authority, and therefore council tax payers are protected from any additional costs incurred because of the breakdown.
