Household Waste Recycling Centres
It’s quick and easy to book a slot at www.milton-keynes.gov.uk/hwrc although residents can always call if they need extra help. MK’s tips are open seven days a week.
How to book a visit to the Household Waste Recycling Centre (HWRC)
Visits can be booked online or by telephone, up to seven days in advance. New booking slots are released every day, on a rolling basis. Residents with vehicles over 2m tall must book at the Newport Pagnell site.
To make a booking (15 min slot) you need to confirm the registration number of the vehicle you plan to use, which site you wish to visit and your email address for the booking confirmation to be sent to.
Each booking is for a single entry to the site and you will not be allowed on site without your confirmation email and proof of address e.g. driving licence.
If you don't have access to the internet, you can book by calling us on 01908 252811.
