MK to combine kitchen and garden waste

A new waste contract between Milton Keynes Council and environmental services provider Serco will see the introduction of a combined garden and food waste collection.

Council cabinet member for environmental services Chris Williams said: As part of this contract we will see in the summer 2009 the introduction of a combined garden and food waste collection to all homes in the city.

Serco integrated services chief executive Mike Brown added: We have been most encouraged by the collaborative approach of the council, which I am certain will result in the provision of an excellent service.

Serco is planning to introduce a number of improvements to the service which will include kitchen waste collections in 2009 and green vehicles, as well as devising more environmentally friendly collection routes.
