Green bin collections were missed in several estates today (18/8) as the service resumed following a month-long suspension.
Milton Keynes Council had previously suspended food and garden waste collections due to low staffing levels.
The collections resumed today as Serco implemented "new protocols" and a quicker return to work.
But residents were advised to expect delays due to an anticipated backlog and it has been announced this evening that multiple estates have been affected.
Food and garden waste collections that were not made today are as follows:— Milton Keynes City Council (@mkcouncil) August 18, 2021
- Monkston/Monkston Park
- Wavendon/Wavendon Gate
- Old Farm Park
- Glebe Farm
- Woburn Sands
