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

Missed bin collection updates

Bad weather, road works and other operational issues can sometimes mean we're unable to empty bins. Leave your bin out if we miss the collection in your street, we will empty it as soon as we can, usually the next working day. 

Please leave missed bins out for collection. We will empty them as soon as we can.
