24 November 2020 Web page update
The section on Rubbish and recycling has been updated today to reflect recent changes in Milton Keynes Council practice and guidance.
05 November 2020 Autumn Rodents and Bins
There has been a noticeable rise in rodent activity around the city centre. Colder weather and lockdown reduced food waste has forced rodents to search harder for food. Please be aware that any food left out and any rubbish bin lids not closed will encourage rodents to move within our development. So, please ensure that any rubbish is broken down so that rubbish bin lids are shut.
Please note regarding the bins: We are still finding rubbish being placed in the wrong bins. This is running the risk that the bins may not be emptied by the council if it continues. There are guidance notices in the bin area and further information is available on the MK Council website.
27 September 2020 Autumn Leaves
It is the time of year when leaves will fall from trees, especially with the winds we are having at the moment. In these conditions, we encourage residents to clear leaves from drainage grates and manhole covers to reduce pooling of rain water. Also checking of the drainage system onto and from your balcony is advised, clearing leaves if they are forming around these areas.

If the code is known then our security is reduced, especially if it is passed on to others. If you are in a 3 bed property or an apartment and require key(s) then you can order through Keyholders - 01908 640100. If you see anybody using a code to release the doors then please contact a board member or Keyholders.

21 May 2020 Recycle Bin update
MK Council have asked that items should be loosely placed in the pink bin and not in bags. This is to avoid the wrong items being placed in the recycle bin and not caught before returning to the recycle centre. If a 'contaminated' lorry returns with non recyclable items then the whole load is classed as contaminated. Bags should not be used in the pink bin. For the four bedroom properties roadside collection, recycle bags will still be collected as normal.
