Before reporting a missed bin please ensure:

  • your bin was out for collection by 7am. Footage from bin lorry cameras may be reviewed to confirm this
  • there was no contamination tag left on your bin
  • if applicable, you have checked to see if your neighbours' bins have been collected – if not please wait until after 3.30pm before reporting as your collection may be delayed

Green garden waste bins without a valid sticker will not be collected. To subscribe to this service visit our register and pay for the garden waste service page.

    Where we have missed a bin, we aim to return within two working days in towns, and three working days in rural areas.

    In circumstances beyond our control, such as adverse weather, collection will be made as soon as possible, which may be the next scheduled collection.

    We will leave a contamination tag to let you know that something has been put in a bin that shouldn't be there, and will ask you to remove it before the next collection.

    Forgot to put your bin out?

    If you forgot to put your bin out you will have to wait until the next collection date for it to be emptied. Another option is to take your waste to a recycling centre
