Community Highways Volunteering Scheme
The Parish Council are looking into the Cambridgeshire County Council Community Highways Volunteering Scheme. If this is something that you would be interested in helping with, please contact the Clerk at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Message from Cambridgeshire County Council:
Residents planning to visit one of Cambridgeshire’s nine household recycling centres (HRCs) with a van or trailer from today (1 October) will need a free e-permit.
Back in May, Councillors approved plans to introduce the scheme to allow the Council to better regulate the use of vans and trailers at HRCs helping to ensure only Cambridgeshire residents’ household waste is delivered to sites.
E-permits need to be obtained using an online system beforehand from the Council’s website (www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/hrc-permits ). The system has been live for the past week allowing residents to register for an e-permit in advance of today’s launch. These e-permits will be limited to 12 visits per year. There will be an exemption to the scheme for trailers up to 1.5m (5ft) in length (excluding the towing mechanism bar) and 570 litre capacity, to allow larger household and garden jobs.
Cambridgeshire County Council’s Chair of the Highways and Infrastructure Committee, Councillor Mathew Shuter said “We want to prevent unlawful trade waste being disposed of at our HRCs, which is ultimately at a cost to the council tax paying residents of Cambridgeshire. Residents can still take their household waste to one of our sites in a van or trailer – but they’ll just now need one of the free e-permits to do so. It’s easy to apply and our site staff are available to help.”
Additional site staff will be available to help at all nine HRCs in the early months of the scheme being introduced.
