New Wheelie Bin system – post code checker launched

Update from Milton Keynes City Council – March 2023

Postcode Checker Launch

From September, how the City Council collects waste and recycling is being modernised. The majority of residents will move to wheelie bins, although a small number of homes that aren’t suitable for wheelie bins will remain on a sack collection service, or a mixed collection with sacks for recycling and a wheelie bin for other rubbish. 

Residents can now check in seconds whether they’ll receive wheelie bins or sacks when Milton Keynes’ new waste collection starts later this year. We ask for your support in directing all reviews through the postcode checker and enquiry form. If residents do not have access to the website they can call Customer Services directly and they will assist with completing the review form.

The online postcode checker has been developed so local people can check what they’re due to receive and request a review if needed;

Residents can also use the new online postcode checker to ask the City Council to review their property for a different solution. Eligibility for a review is based on specific criteria around storage space and access; residents can’t request a review based on personal preferences for bins or sacks. The City Council will be starting the property reviews in May, running over a number of months, and will let residents know whether their collection type will change as a result.

The City Council will also be writing to every home in May to let them know what type of collection they will receive.
