Recycling - paper to go straight in blue wheelie bins

South Cambridgeshire District Council is changing the way used paper is collected from residents for recycling.

From 11 December, residents won’t need to use their caddies to recycle paper anymore.

From that date, residents should place their used paper directly into their blue wheelie bins instead. This used paper will still be recycled after being sorted from other materials at our facility near Waterbeach.

Residents can keep their caddy to use for anything they like. Alternatively, they can be recycled by being dropped off at the nearest household waste recycling centre. They should not be placed into wheelie bins.

The decision to withdraw the paper caddy service was taken at South Cambridgeshire District Council’s Cabinet meeting in September. The decision will save taxpayers money and simplify the recycling process for residents.

Because of this upcoming change, the District Council will not be delivering any new paper caddies. If they are lost or stolen before 11 December, residents can begin putting paper in their blue bin.

After 11 December, residents can keep their caddies and use them however they wish. Alternatively, they can be taken to a household waste recycling centre for recycling. They should not be placed into wheelie bins.

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor,
I was warned recently that Cottenham people make up what they don’t know. I think everyone everywhere could fall prey to this which is why transparency is so important for government at all levels and why David Jenkins, one of our former County Councillors, and I have been campaigning for the County Council’s relevant Committees not to hold secretive meetings about their aspirations for development in Cottenham. David, with help from the County’s Monitoring Officer and some legal advice, managed to change this recently. This item should be open to the public now, as it always should have been. Of course, sometimes, however hard you try to be transparent, some people prefer to make things up. Good legal advice and representation has a part to play in planning applications too. 
It has been clear since the public meeting in 2015 that Cottenham people, in general, do not welcome large developments partly because they usually come without the necessary infrastructure improvement…

Homegrown Cottenham Rock N Roll!

If you’re looking for something a bit different as a stocking filler this Christmas, why not try the new album ‘fragments’ by Clive-Upon-Sea, the artistic alter ego of Rev Simon Oliver, Cottenham’s Methodist minister. The album is one of the products of the Arts Night which has been meeting in the Cottenham Community Centre Coffee Shop over the last few years (and was actually co-founded by the current editor of this esteemed publication!). The group meets twice a month on Sunday nights to explore life, art, philosophy and faith through the creative arts. We are mostly a bunch of singers, musicians and songwriters, but we’ve also had poets, photographers, artists and story writers amongst our number has hosted an Arts Night. Do get in touch if you’d like to come along. It’s a really great, low key event. The sorts of issues we have explored over the past few years have ranged from Sex, God, Death and the Devil to Summer, Childhood, Christmas and Hangovers! The album features 12 of the s…
