MK City Council spends over £3.5million per annum keeping MK clean and tidy. All council owned public land should be cleaned on at least an eight weekly basis. Some areas will be visited more frequently, receiving fortnightly or even daily visits - especially around schools, shops and areas of high footfall. Find out more about our responsibilities and cleaning frequencies, as well as our street cleansing standards.
In addition to this:
- MKCC provides education to our younger residents, providing free in-school talks, videos and on-line resources.
- MKCC also employs litter wardens to monitor and fine residents caught littering, dog fouling or fly tipping. Litter Wardens can also join with our in-school talks.
- MKCC provides free litter posters and resources via the Eco Champions programme for MKCC staff, Parish and Town councils and interested local residents.
- MKCC supports our local Parish and Town councils by providing litter pick kits free of charge to loan out to residents (see information below)
- MKCC will be changing to wheeled bins for collection of rubbish and recycling in 2023, which will help to reduce the amount of litter from torn and discarded recycling and rubbish sacks.
