Tell us if we’ve missed a rubbish or recycling collection

Your rubbish and recycling are collected by different vehicles. This means that the four different types of collection are carried out at different times of the day, and often on different days.

You can check your property's collection day using our collection day search tool.

All rubbish and recycling should be placed in clear view at the nearest possible point to the property boundary by 6.30am on your collection day.
