You do not need to report a missed bin collection if your bin is not full and you can manage until your next collection.  

Before you report a missed bin

  • Wait until after 5pm on your collection day
  • Check below for missed bin collection updates, we may already know your bin has been missed.

Do not report a missed collection if your bin:

  • wasn't at the kerbside or your collection point by 7am
  • is too full and the lid is not fully closed
  • has incorrect items within it
