As we may still be collecting in your area please wait until after 4.00pm on the day of your collection before reporting a missed collection.
Badly damaged bins have developed large splits or holes that are getting caught on the vehicle lifting mechanism are very difficult to dislodge. We have been trying to dislodge the bins but this is an unsafe practice that cannot continue. If a bin is badly split and considered likely to get stuck our crews have been asked to log the bin as damaged and regrettably leave it as it cannot be emptied safely. We will leave a sticker on your bin if we can’t empty it and automatically order a new bin for you if you haven’t already ordered a replacement.
We apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause. If you require any further information please read our split brown bin FAQs.
