When you report a missed bin collection, you will be asked to confirm the following information:
- That the bin was left at its collection point by 7:30am on the day of collection
- That the correct bin was left out for collection
- That the bin did not contain any contaminated items (e.g. household waste left in the recycling bin)
- That the bin was visible and accessible
Subject to the above criteria being met, and checking against council records, the council will arrange to return within two working days (Tuesday to Friday) of the missed collection report being received.
