Bins, recycling and rubbish

Report a missed bin

Find out what to do if you think we've missed your bin collection.

Before you report a missed bin

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, we've had to put certain changes in place to make sure we can focus our efforts on keeping our critical services going as much as possible, while keeping our staff safe when they are at work.

Please check the latest updates for the current schedule.

Please confirm:

  • it's after 3pm on your collection day
  • your bin was out on the kerb by 7am on your collection day
  • your bin was not too heavy to be lifted by our collection crew
  • your bin didn't have a sticker to mark it had the wrong items in it

Report a missed bin

Please let us know about a missed bin within 48 hours.

Waste not in your bin

We'll only collect non-recyclable waste contained in your grey bin. For excess waste that doesn't fit in your grey bin, you can request a special uplift. You can also visit one of our household waste and recycling centres.

For additional green and blue bins, please put additional recycling in containers next to your bin.

We only collect food and garden waste contained in your brown bin.
