Abandoned bins

How to report a bin that has been abandoned for more than 4 weeks.

A bin that has been left and not used for a minimum of 4 weeks is deemed as abandoned. You can report an abandoned bin and request for it to be removed when the owner cannot be identified, for example abandoned in a back alley.

If the bin has been abandoned for less than 4 weeks, then this will not be deemed as abandoned.

Please note, bins are the property of the Council and can be removed at any time if they are not secured on your property.
