Household Waste Recycling Centres

MK residents can drop off large or bulky amounts of household waste and recycling at one of the three Household Waste and Recycling Centres (HWRCs).

How to book a visit

To visit a HWRC you must make a booking. Slots can be booked online or by telephone, up to seven days in advance. New booking slots are released every day, on a rolling basis. 

To make a booking (15 minute slot) you need to confirm the registration number of the vehicle you plan to use, which site you wish to visit and an email address for the booking confirmation to be sent to. You will not be allowed on site without your confirmation email and proof of address e.g. driving licence.

Alternatively, book by calling Customer Services on 01908 252811.

If you are unable to make your time slot, you will need to simply rebook as we are currently unable to make changes to existing the booking.
