Report a missed bin

After you have reported

Once you have reported your missed bin collection, make sure your bin is out on the edge of the property. We will collect it as soon as possible. We will let you know whether it has been collected or not.

Your bins will not be collected if:

  • they are not out on the correct collection day before 6.30 am. (You can check your collection day on My Neighbourhood)
  • they contain items we don’t collect
  • they are too heavy to be tipped into the truck. You may have to lighten the content before we can return to empty it
  • the bin lid is not closed. Bin lids need to be closed otherwise the bin is not safe to empty. If your bin is too full for the lid to shut, remove some items until it closes.

The crew will not be able to collect any recycling placed in black bags.
