Report a missed bin collection

All collections are made from the kerbside outside of your property between 7am and 8pm on your specified days. You can find out your collection day, by taking a look at our 'when are my bins collected' webpage.

If we've missed your bin, please allow us up to 8pm on the day of collection before reporting it to us, to allow for delays such as weather or roadworks.

You can check below to see why your bin has been missed and providing the bin was not left due to one of the reasons we may not collect, inform us that your bin has been missed by submitting a request below. Our crews will then return before the end of the following day.

You must report your missed bin within 24 hours, otherwise our crews will not return until your next scheduled collection day.

Get an update on your collection

To provide you with your missed bin information we first need to know where you live. Different properties on the same street may fall under different rounds, so it is essential that you select your own property and not that of a neighbour.

Please search for and select the property where the collection has not taken place.

Enter a postcode, street name or house name etc.
