You can download our 'Report it' app and report a missed bin along with potholes, fly tipping or litter directly from the scene via your mobile device.

1. Check your bin collection day

Before reporting a missed bin, please check you have put your bin out on the right collection day.

Your bin may have been missed because:

  • it was not out by 7am
  • the bin is too heavy
  • the bin lid not fully closed
  • the recycling bin was contaminated with items such as plastic bags and or black bin bags, nappies, food waste, electrical items or textiles
  • Check to see whether a card has been left on the bin or a card posted through your letterbox explaining why your bin has not been emptied.
