Rubbish and Recycling FAQs
If your bin has been missed on the scheduled day of collection and you phone our Customer Services team before 12pm, collection will be made by the crews in that area the same day. If you report it after 12pm the crew will return the following day.
If you call our Customer Services team the day after your scheduled collection day before 12pm, collection will be made by crews in that area that day. Unfortunately if you call in after 12pm a collection will not be made and you will need to wait until your next scheduled collection unless the Client Team decides there are special circumstances.
