Bags of rubbish including children’s toys, broken wicker baskets and household waste was dumped outside a recycling centre.
The heap of flytipped material was left by the gates of the St Neots Recycling Centre, off Cromwell Road, which is currently closed due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Officials from Huntingdonshire District Council (HDC) found the mess on April 3.
Children’s toy dolls, board games and even a bucket and spade were left on the pavement.
HDC tweeted to alert residents not to dump waste while centres in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough were closed.
