Report a missed waste or recycling collection

Please note: there will be no change to collections during the May bank holidays. Scheduled collections will be made on Monday 31 May. Please place out your containers that are scheduled to be emptied by 7am.

Before you report a missed collection

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.

Containers need to be left at your collection point for emptying.

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.
