Officers from South Cambridgeshire District Council are investigating after the rubbish, which includes a large plastic container, was ditched off Malton Road, between Meldreth and Orwell.
Cllr Sue Ellington portfolio holder for environmental services at the district council, said: "Fly tipping is not only illegal but a blight on the environment. We are grateful to members of the public who help us by reporting any incidents that they see, and now that the rules have changed I would urge people to makes sure that any contractors they use are properly registered.
"If waste is dumped illegally and traced back to you, you could be fined up to �5,000," she said.
