See why your bin has not been emptied

An important REMINDER: All waste and recycling bins need to be presented on the kerbside by 6am. If bins are missed due to late presentation, we will not be able to return to empty later.

We are issuing this reminder as collection routes are being changed due to operational issues with some collections taking place earlier than normal.

You can check why your bin has not been emptied

Our bin wagons are now fitted with a system that records any issues the crews may have had with collections when out and about on their rounds.

If your bin was out before 6am, but it hasn't been emptied by the end of the day, you can now see if there was an access issue affecting all or part of your street at the time we were collecting. This form will tell you if we plan to return for the bin before your next bin day.

We won't return to empty your bin before your next collection day if:

  • your bin was not out for collection when we visited your street
  • the wrong bin was presented
  • the bin contained items or materials we don't accept and has been stickered by our crew
  • the bin was too heavy for the crew to move
  • the contents of your bin were stuck or frozen inside and didn't drop out when we tipped the bin

If no reasons were reported by the crew, you can use this same form to report a missed collection to us and we will come back within 5 working days.
