There may be a reason for your bin not being emptied. Before reporting it as a missed collection, please check that your bin:
- was presented for collection at 7am
- had the lid fully closed
- did not contain waste not permitted in that collection
- was not too heavy for collection
- was accessible by the crews if you receive an assisted collection.
Please note: collections are carried out until approximately 4.00pm.
If unsure of your collection day, please check the online bin collection calendar (opens in new window)before reporting a missed collection below.

We will leave a tag on your blue or brown bin if there is waste found inside that is not accepted in that bin collection service.
The tag will be marked to show which waste needs to be removed and once the contaminated waste is taken out, the bin will be emptied on your next scheduled collection.
