State of the art recycle centre reaches new heights
A SPECIAL ‘topping-out’ ceremony was held this week to celebrate the latest phase of building at East Cambridgeshire’s newest, state of the art recycling centre.
The event was held at Witchford Recycling Centre to mark the installation of an innovative green roof on the new building which will replace the old open air site at nearby Grunty Fen.
The new recycling centre, which opens in November, will be indoor and split-level.
The topping out – a symbolic ceremony to demonstrate that the building is watertight – was carried out by Councillor John Powley, chairman of Cambridgeshire County Council.
He was joined by local residents, representatives from the construction company Willmott Dixon and other local councillors.
