Milton Keynes Council - WISE Environmental Crime Officers (Waste Investigations Support and Enforcement)
You may remember, at the start of the year Milton Keynes Council announced that they had appointed 5 new enforcement officers who will be able to issue offenders with on-the-spot fines. These were created after feedback from the public regarding high levels of litter across MK.
For more information on this team, what it means to be issued an on the spot fine and many other queries, please click HERE for some Frequently Asked Questions.

What goes where...
Wheelie Bin Pilot
The aim of the pilot is for residents to try out the wheeled bins and identify any issues. It will also enable Milton Keynes Council to thoroughly test their equipment and procedures to develop options for new waste and recycling collection methods before the contract renewal in 2023.
84% of councils in England supply their residents with wheeled bins. There are many advantages, including:
Higher levels of recycling
Lower rates of injuries for residents and staff moving sacks
Less street litter from sack spillage
