Report an abandoned bin

Bins should only be reported as abandoned if they have been uncollected from a resident for at least 14 days.

Please ensure you check with neighbours if the bin belongs to them before using the form below to report it as abandoned.

To help us investigate your report fully, please provide as much information as possible, including photographs of the bins you are reporting.

What we will do

Once we receive the report, we will write to the owners of the bin or the surrounding houses if we do not know who the bin belongs to and ask them to collect it.

We will also put stickered notices on the bin warning that it will be removed if it isn’t retrieved within 14 days.

If it has not been retrieved after the 14-day warning period, we will arrange the removal of the bin.
