MK Council has advised that it will be restarting its weekly food and garden waste collections on Monday 15 March.
Collections were suspended in January due to reduced staff numbers caused by the coronavirus pandemic. We appreciate that this has been an inconvenience to residents, and we are sorry for this. The situation has now improved enough for MK Council and partner Serco to resume collections from 15 March.

Managing the backlog may mean lots of waste and potentially some delays. Unfortunately, we are not able to accept bagged green waste in addition to the bins. We know that people may have accumulated green waste during this pause in service, so would ask that you keep composting where you can. Household Waste Recycling Centres are open and it is easy to book a slot if there is additional waste that cannot be kept until the service resumes again.
