Somewhat Slow To Inform Us…(Again)

So Cambs County Council has just woken up?…..

All nine household recycling centres run by Cambridgeshire County will refuse to accept upholstered domestic seating waste from January 1.

It means such things as sofas, cushions, chairs, or beanbags can no longer be dropped off at any the centres.

A county council spokesperson said today: “Direction by the Environment Agency – confirmed last week – means we can no longer accept upholstered domestic seating waste, such as sofas, cushions, chairs, or beanbags at any Cambridgeshire Household Recycling Centres from 1 January.

“We apologise for the short notice of this change.

“We are urgently working with our partners to resolve this.
Please retain these items until we can provide a further update.”

“All upholstered furniture must be incinerated and not sent to landfill or mixed up with other waste types.

“The question is why has CCC waited until 2 days before the assessment deadline to tell people, and why is there no handling system in place in time.”

I don’t think the person with an old sofa will retain it until CCC can make provison for it…
