Report a missed bin

You can't report a missed bin if:

  • the bin was not placed out for collection by 7am on the correct day
  • the bin contains the incorrect items or materials for disposal/recycling (What can be recycled from home)
  • you report after one working day of your collection

Your collection may have been missed for the following reasons:

  • you need to put your rubbish/recycling on the boundary of your property by 7am on your collection day. If you put it out later, you may miss the collection and the operatives will not return if this is the case. You can check your collection day through our MyAccount service.
  •  if the rubbish for the rest of your street hasn't been collected, the collection may be running late. Please wait until the end of the working day to report a missed collection
  •  the bin contains the incorrect items or material for disposal/recycling
