Report a missed waste or recycling collection

Before you report a missed collection

Your day of collection may have changed over the festive period. Please check your collection day before you report a missed collection. We will be unable to return to incorrect missed collection reports. 

Garden Waste collections are suspended for two weeks, commencing Monday 1 January 2018, resuming on Monday 15 January 2018 .

Missed collections must be raised within three working days of the collection date.

Was your bin put out for collection before 7am on collection day?  Our crews have until 6pm to collect your waste. 

If your bin has been missed, but others were emptied please report it online.  As you complete the form you will see collection service information for your street, which may help you identify the issue.

If it looks like the whole street is waiting for a collection, it may be that the crew is delayed or had to change route.

Common reasons collections are missed

Sometimes bins and boxes are left unemptied if they contain the wrong type of waste.

Crews will not collect extra waste such as bin bags placed out along with domestic or garden bins.

Crews will not collect bins that are too heavy, due to the risk of damage or injury to the collection crew, the container or the bin lorry.
