Green bin collections missed in several Milton Keynes estates on first day that service resumes

    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.

    The local authority says that collections were not made in Tattenhoe, Furzton, Monkston, Monkston Park, Wavendon, Wavendon Gate, Old Farm Park, Glebe Farm, and Woburn Sands.

    Households in these areas are being asked to put their green bins out for collection tomorrow (19/8) if they were not collected today.
