Report a missed collection (rubbish, recycling, garden waste)

From this page you may report a missed collection
Before you report a missed collection, please check your scheduled collection days here. Please also note, our waste crews collect until 3.30pm each day so please do not report a missed collection before that time.

Please note:

  • You must put your wheelie bins/sacks/boxes out no earlier than 3:30pm on the day before collection and no later than 6:00am on the day of collection,
  • Waste put out after 6:00am on collection day may not be collected -
    • If you put your wheelie bins/sacks/boxes out late then please bring them back onto your property and put them out in time for your next scheduled collection.

We will not collect rubbish or recycling that has been put into the wrong container - for example, we will not empty your recycling bin if it contains garden waste. Instead your bin will be tagged to tell you what the problem is and what you need to do about it. This is not a missed collection.
