Household Waste and Recycling Centres

MK Council have introduced a series of measures to make sure that both the workers and the public will be able to maintain social distancing at these sites. The most critical of these is a booking system which will stagger the number of people at the site, ensure that queues are kept at a minimum and that this vital service benefits the residents of Milton Keynes.

No one will be able to drop off materials without making a prior booking.
Anyone wishing to attend a HWRC will be required to book a 15 minute slot by contacting Customer Services on 01908 252811 or a slot can be booked online. For more details on booking please go to the MK Council website https://www.milton-keynes.gov.uk/waste-recycling/community-recycling-centres-tips.
On arrival at the HWRC, residents will be required to show confirmation of booking and identification.
The safety of the public and the teams is essential so anyone who feels ill with COVID-19 symptoms must not visit the sites.
HWRC staff will not be able to assist with carrying items so please ensure that you come to the tip with whoever helped you load heavy items into your vehicle.
