Collection Days

Milton Keynes Council collects pink sacks (dry recyclables), black sacks (household waste), blue boxes (glass bottles and jars), yellow bags (batteries) and green wheeled bins (mixed food and garden waste) from the kerbside of most houses each week. Waste must be presented by 7am on the day of your collection (but not before 5pm the evening before) on the boundary of your property closest to where the collection vehicle passes.

Flats where Eurobins are provided should ensure that all bags are contained within the correct bin (pink for recycling and black for waste) and access to the bins is not obstructed by loose bags or bulky waste.  These larger bins are collected once a week, but not necesarily on the same day as the normal household collections.

For operational reasons we may collect green bins, blue boxes, pink sacks and black sacks separately. This means that there may be more than one vehicle that visits your property to collect your waste and recycling each week.
