editorial image

Milton Keynes Council has advised residents that supplies of pink sacks for recycling are in short supply.

A statement from the council reads: “We have more on order and will ensure all our stockists are resupplied the first week after Easter. We are sorry for any invonvenience this may cause.

“Our annual sack deliveries for this year are now complete - each household was delivered a roll of 80 pink and 26 black sacks. We are no longer able to accept reports of non-delivery.”

If residents run out of pink recycling sacks (for paper, cardboard, cans, plastic bottles, textiles, aerosols, cartons and foil) before the next delivery, they can be picked up, free of charge, from any of the outlets below.
