Bank holiday recycling and waste collections

From now on MK households will have their waste and recycling collected on bank holidays. So if your collection is due on a bank holiday we will collect it on the usual day.


Our crews work on bank holidays - except for Christmas and the New Year


Apart from at Christmas, there will be NO CHANGES TO YOUR COLLECTION

We started this from the 2020 Easter bank holidays, we will be collecting all the waste and recycling on the normal collection day. 

So if your collection is due on Friday 8 May we will collect all your waste and recycling as normal. The week commencing Monday 11 May will also remain the same.

The only changes we will be making to collection days in the future will be around Christmas and New Year, which will be published nearer the time.
