Trade use of Community Recycling Centres

To assist small traders who have limited disposal options, Milton Keynes Council provides a commercial and industrial waste area at our Newport Pagnell Community Recycling Centre (North Crawley Road, Newport Pagnell).  The Trade Waste area is operated on the council’s behalf by H W Martin Recycling Services and is available between 8am and 5pm Monday to Friday and from 8am to 1pm on a Saturday (the trade site is closed Saturday afternoons, Sundays, Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Years Day and only open until 1pm on Christmas and New Years Eve).

A weighbridge is installed so that business vehicles can be charged according to the type of waste and by weight – green waste is less expensive to dispose of so this is reflected in the price. Materials which are more expensive to dispose of, such as plasterboard, are charged at a higher rate.

The site is only suitable for commercial vehicles up to 3.5 tonnes.
