Report a missed collection

Due to staff absences and vehicle breakdowns we’re running behind on a number of recycling and garden waste rounds.

Please leave your containers out and we’ll collect them as soon as possible.

We’re really sorry for any inconvenience this causes you. Thanks for your patience.

If we haven’t emptied your bins on your collection day, you need to tell us by the end of the following working day. For example, if your collection day is Friday you will need to tell us by 11.59pm on Monday.

Did you know?
It costs around £107 per tonne to send waste to landfill, but some materials have a value when sold on to be recycled. Minimising the volume of waste we send to landfill and maximising the amount of material we recycle can keep the cost of waste collections lower for council tax payers.

The quickest way to report your missed collection is to sign in to MyAccount.

After you have told us, leave your bins out so we can come back and empty them, usually within 48 hours of your report.
