PYMOOR and Littleport villagers have benefited from a scheme which turns rubbish into cash.
They have received grants from a fund which allows rubbish tip operators to invest part of their annual tax bill in their local communities.

The grants, totalling more than £90,000 for seven projects across Cambridgeshire, are distributed under the Landfill Communities Fund by WREN.
WREN project manager, Sarah Gosling, said: "Projects applying for grants from WREN are assessed by an individual panel of locally based experts in each county for their need, community benefit and support, sustainability and value for money.
