Arrange a bulky waste collection

How to arrange a bulky waste collection

The bulky waste collection service is a chargeable service from MK Council for items such as household furniture, carpets, white goods, microwaves, TVs, etc.

How much does it cost?

The cost for the bulky waste collection is calculated using a points based system, this may include disposal costs where applicable. Small items have lower points values, while larger items have higher points values. Contact our Customer Services team on 01908 252570 or email customerservices@milton-keynes.gov.uk The cost will be calculated and confirmed before your booking is placed. 

For collection of large amounts of items it may be necessary for one of our officers to visit, in line with all current social distancing rules, to provide a quotation. Alternatively, drop off items free of charge at one of our Household Waste Recycling Centres or consider hiring a skip.

What don't we collect?

We do not collect hazardous waste, car batteries, tyres, sheets of glass or commercial waste.

How to prepare for a collection

All items booked for collection should be presented in an accessible location within the boundary of your property closest to where the collection vehicle passes, such as a garden, driveway or bin store by 7am on the morning of your collection. 

Please note: collection crews are not, under any circumstances, permitted to enter any property so your items must be left outside. 

The vehicles which collect bulky waste are separate from the vehicles that collect your clear and black sacks. We also collect white goods separately from other bulky waste. 

If you live in a council flat or a private flat within a council block, please place items for collection in the communal waste area. Do not place items outside your front door or on the landings as this is in breach of tenancy conditions and fire regulations.
