Missed collections

We collect more than 100,000 bins across the districts every week.

Sometimes, collections can be delayed by factors out of our control. Examples include; roadworks, vehicle breakdowns, crew sickness, severe weather or parked cars preventing safe access.

To avoid a missed collection, check what should go in your bins. If a bin contains unacceptable items, it will not be emptied.

Please ensure that your bin is out by 6.30am on your collection day and that you follow our bin collection advice.

Before reporting a missed collection

Check below for known delays in your area.

If your road is listed below, it means we are already aware that you haven't had a collection.

If this is the case, please don't report it, but leave your bin out and we'll collect it as soon as possible.
