Officers explaining how the new wheeled bin recycling service will work in East Cambridgeshire have been impressed with the enthusiasm they have encountered from residents.

Over the last few weeks, staff from the Waste Services Team have been at events across the whole of the district such as Fordham Feast, Ely’s Aquafest and a Farmers Market in Burwell to talk about the new service.

The vast majority of people have welcomed the new service and asked lots of questions about how the changes will work and when they will get their new bins.
