Report missed bin

Before you report a missed bin, please check if there is any reason that your bin may not have been collected:

  • your blue or brown bin may be contaminated by non-recyclable waste
  • there may have been a disruption to your bin collection service
  • it was not presented for collection by 7am on the correct bin collection day

Contamination

If your bin is contaminated there should be a contamination sticker placed on the lid. You should remove any non-recyclable waste and present it on the day of your next scheduled collection.

Failure to present your bin

If your bin was not presented for collection by 7am you should present it on the day of your next scheduled collection. We can't return to empty a bin that was put out too late for collection.
