From Good Friday, collections will be between one and four days late, returning to normal on April 16.

In anticipation of the 5,000 tonnes of foil, plastic and card that gets thrown out in the UK once the last morsels of 80million chocolate eggs are consumed, South Cambridgeshire and Cambridge city councils are allowing for extra recycling to be collected on the Easter collections dates, which have also been revised due to bank holidays.

South Camrbidgeshire residents can put an additional transparent sack out with recycling, not containing glass, which will be collected as well as one bundle of cardboard, tied together.

Head of the Shared Waste Service between South Cambridgeshire District and Cambridge City Councils, Trevor Nicoll, said: “Foil is often forgotten when it comes to recycling, but clean foil can be recycled over and over again. It can be made into all sorts of aluminium products from cans to aeroplanes.”

Revised recyling dates can be found online at www.cambridge.gov.uk/binday and www.scambs.gov.uk/recycling.
