CHANGES TO FREE PINK SACKS DISTRIBUTION

 

Milton Keynes Council have advised us that we are only allowed to hand out one roll of pink sacks per customer when residents come into the Town Council Office.  This is due to many commercial companies taking large amounts of sacks to use as packaging.

 

Every year during the summer months a roll of 80 pinks sacks are delivered to each property in Newport Pagnell.  According to Milton Keynes Council this should last for nine months depending on the size of the household a further roll can then be collected from our office at 80 High Street.

 

We apologise for the inconvenience this new ruling may cause, and regret that the issue is completely out of the hands of the Town Council.
