Report a Waste Collection Problem
Report a Missed Bin via our new Self Service Portal
Please check that your neighbours bins have been collected before reporting a missed bin, as the crew may not have serviced your area yet. In the event of a genuine missed collection, please report this to us by the end of the next working day.
Fly-tipping will normally be removed from town centres/shopping streets by the end of the next working day and other areas within 3 working days. Sometimes, further investigation may be required, in which case it may take longer to remove.
Report a Dead Animal on the Highway
If you find a dead animal in the street or on any other public land, please contact us and we will remove the animal as quickly as we can.
The Council is not responsible for dead animals on private land.
