Cllr Jim White, Executive Councillor for Operations, said: "We want to encourage our residents to join us this Recycle Week to learn more about recycling in Huntingdonshire. A fantastic 54% of all waste collected throughout the district is recycled, however there is always a bit more we can all do. I would encourage all our residents to visit one of the events during Recycle Week to find out more."
