From Monday, 6 February 2017 brown bins will only be collected if they have garden waste in them
Do not report that your bin has been missed until after 2pm on the date of collection, in case the crew return. You have until 24 hours after the day of collection to report a missed bin.
Before completing this form please note that the crews who collect the waste in your area record the details of why bins are not collected.
If they have recorded that your bin was:
- not presented for 7 am
- not presented at the edge of the property closest to the collection point
- too heavy for the lifting mechanism on the freighter
- contaminated by something that should not have been in the bin
- compacted so that gravity did not allow the contents to empty when placed on the lifts
We will not return to empty the bin.
In the case of a heavy bin, items need to be removed and presented for the next collection as side waste cannot be taken.
In the case of a contaminated bin, the items need to be removed and disposed of properly and the bin placed out for the next collection.
In the case of a compacted bin, items need to be loosened and the bin presented for the next collection.
