Household recycling centres
There are three tips, also known as household recycling centres (HRC) in Huntingdonshire. They are run by Amey for Cambridgeshire County Council (CCC).
From 1 March 2022 you no longer need to book to visit any of the HRCs.
All sites are open every day except Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day. They are free of charge to use, but do not accept waste from businesses.
You will need an e-permit to dispose of household waste at the HRCs using a commercial-type vehicle or any trailer in excess of 1.5m length (excluding the towing mechanism) or 570 litre capacity.
You can find further information about the scheme and details of how to apply on Cambridgeshire County Council's website.
If you have any queries about the e-permit scheme please email the Waste Management Team.
