Two councils in Cambridgeshire are to share a waste management service in a bid to save up to £700,000.

Cambridge City Council and South Cambridgeshire District Council started sharing a waste management team back in August and will now move towards integrating the bin collection rounds across the two districts. Both waste teams will also operate out of one depot.

Cllr Mick Martin, South Cambridgeshire District Council’s cabinet member for environmental health, said: ‘The joining up of the crews at one location is a big step toward a fully integrated shared service for both Cambridge and South Cambridgeshire.

‘The aim of the move is to take the best of how both councils have run their operations so we can improve the service we provide while driving down costs.’
