Abandoned bins

What is an abandoned recycling or rubbish bin?

A recycling/rubbish collection wheelie bin is classed as abandoned if it has been left out on the street for a period of time after the scheduled collection day.

All bins should be returned to the boundaries of the property as soon as possible after the collection has been completed.

Abandoned bins are at risk of being:

  • vandalised
  • attract vermin
  • set on fire
  • filled with the wrong items.

When reporting a suspected abandoned bin, please provide as much detail as possible of the location of the bin so our contractors are able to locate this.

How to report it

You can report abandoned bins by using our online form.
