Waste Collection Pilot – Wheeled Bins 26 October 2020 – 26 February 2021
Moulsoe has been selected by Milton Keynes Council to take part in the pilot scheme.
All houses taking part should have received letters from the Environment and Waste Team explaining how the scheme will work. More details of the scheme can be found at https://www.milton-keynes.gov.uk/waste-recycling/recycling-pilot or you can phone 01908 253334. You can also email the team with your queries or feedback at email@example.com
The collection day for Moulsoe will stay the same, so your bins will need to be put out on a Tuesday. With the pilot scheme it is possible that the time bins are collected will change, so please ensure your bins are placed at the boundary of your property nearest the highway by 7am on the day of collection.
Milton Keynes Council are holding a consultation on Waste and Recycling Collection that launched on Monday 2 November 2020 and will run until Sunday 24 January 2021. Responses from the consultation will help make the decision on the future of the waste services from 2023.

Please don’t ride bikes on the footpaths around the fields.
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.
In addition, there are extended opening hours to 7am-7pm at the New Bradwell site as it is the most appropriate site to handle the additional traffic. The Newport Pagnell site and Bleak Hall will be open from 8am-6pm.
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.

Waste and Recycling Collections
Recycling and Waste collections take place every Tuesday, this day will only change during Christmas and New Year period. Those changes will be available via the MK Council website below and will be posted on the village Facebook page.
Please remember, don’t leave your household waste blocking roads or pathways or outside other people’s property. Your sacks/receptacles must be placed at the boundary of your property nearest the highway by 7am on the day of collection. Don’t leave sacks/boxes/bins out for collection too early – too early is considered to be before 5pm the day before your collection so as to mitigate the causes of spillage and prevent detriment to the local area.
