Collection Days

Due to the impact of COVID-19 we have suspended food and garden waste collections from Thursday 14 January 2021 until further notice. In the meantime, please dispose of food waste into black bags and keep any green waste in your garden. We’re doing everything that we can to continue to provide essential services in these extreme circumstances and we thank you for continuing to support our crews as front line key workers.

Milton Keynes Council collects from the curbside of most houses each week:

Where and when to put your bins out  

  • Waste must be presented by 7am on the day of your collection (but not before 5pm the evening before)
  • Make sure the right waste is put in the right container and that there is no loose waste or cardboard (see details of what to put in each container with above page links)
  • Put waste on the boundary of your property closest to where the collection vehicle passes.

If you think your rubbish has been missed by our team please use our missed bin reporting form.  

Getting help with putting your bins out 

If you need help to put bins bags or boxes out and do not have any friends or relatives who can assist, you can request an assisted collection.

Waste and recycling collections from flats 

These larger bins, known as Eurobins are collected at least once a week, but not necessarily on the same day as the normal household collections.
