Borrow litter pick kits

We have litter pick kits held in the community to hire free of charge. These are not held centrally, but in the community making it easier and more convenient to access. 

Check our Litter Pick Holders List to find the one nearest to you.

Collecting the filled sacks

Please let us know at least 7 days in advance where possible of the area you are litter picking and where you would like the rubbish sacks to be collected from so we can ensure a crew is available to collect the bags.  You can contact the Waste Team by emailing  If you only have one or two bags for collection you can put them out on your normal collection day and they will be collected as part of your weekly collection.

Don't forget to photograph your event and send images to to share on MK Council social media.
