Waste and Recycling Collection Consultation – Have your say!

Waste and Recycling Collection Consultation – Have your say!

As the waste collection contract is set to end in 2023, it provides the opportunity to consult with residents and seek their views on what the future of waste collection is in MK.

We’ve produced a short video below explaining the consultation in more detail.

A printed version of the consultation is available on request. You can do this by emailing recycling-pilot@milton-keynes.gov.uk or by calling us on 01908 253334. We will post out a copy to you along with a pre-paid return envelope. Please share this with others who might not have access to the internet or email.

Hand in hand with the consultation, there is a waste collection pilot running with residents in 3000 homes in some parts of MK, which started in October and runs until February 2021 to test whether wheelie bins would work.

This comes after MK Council committed to become the greenest city and increase and improve the quality of the recycling collected across the borough.

MK is focused on:

  • Having cleaner streets by reducing sack spillage.
  • Being greener by increasing recycling.
  • Being safer by reducing injuries to residents, staff and animals from sacks.
  • Improving the quality of recycling by separating materials.
  • Reducing our carbon footprint.

Results from the consultation and the waste collection pilot will help decide the new way forward.

Don’t forget to have your say!
