I need an extra collection/bin
My bin hasn’t been emptied

Your bin needs to be presented on time (by 6am) with the lid down, and no obstructions in front of the container. 

If any of the following apply and you have followed the steps to solve the issue. If you contact us on the day of the missed collection we will, if possible make a second attempt to collect. There is no obligation to return, however, every effort will be made to collect the rubbish if we were unable to return before your next collection date if you have excess it needs to be double-bagged and boxed and placed to the side of the container.

Have you paid?

Your instalments need to be up to date please see the ways to pay. Once paid collections will resume.

Was your bin presented on time?

Your bin needs to be at the collection point that we have been given access to by 6am
