Your Waste Collection Service

What Do I Do If My Bin Has Not Been Collected?

We aim to collect all bins on their scheduled collection day. However, sometimes for various reasons we may miss some (eg parked cars, roadworks, vehicle breakdown or adverse weather).

If this does not explain why your bin was not collected, please contact us. When a delay has occurred we will return to collect your bin on the next available day.

If you note that a number of neighbouring bins have been missed.We will be aware of this and will try to collect your bin on the next available day, Please leave your bin at the kerbside.

Check the list below for some reasons why your bin may not have been collected:

  • Did you leave your bin out before 7.30am on its correct collection day?
  • During holidays, bin collection days may change - is there a change to your collection day?
  • Was your bin lid closed and no other side waste left outside your bin?
  • Did you put a non-recyclable item in your recycling bin?

What Do I Do If My Bin Is Damaged?

Refuse crews must report if they damage a bin whilst emptying. If this happens, the Council will replace your bin.

Sometimes bins split or become damaged due to normal wear and tear. In cases like this it is the responsibility of the householder to buy a replacement bin. For health and safety reasons, crews may not lift damaged bins. Buy a Bin.
