Cambridgeshire recycling centre opens

A new £5m recycling centre has been opened in Cambridgeshire.

The indoor facility centre at Witchford replaces the previous open air site nearby at Grunty Fen and has more convenient opening hours.

The centre, designed by Capital Symonds and built by Willmott Dixon, includes a green roof, and has a split level so that residents do not have steps to climb to recycle.

Mathew Shuter, cabinet member for enterprise at Cambridgeshire County Council, said: “I am reliably informed that this ‘cathedral of recycling’ will recycle or reuse waste equivalent to the weight of two Eiffel Towers, so I know this centre will be a great resource for local communities in East Cambridgeshire.”
