Missed bin collection

Before you report a missed bin collection please check:

If your waste is not presented by 6am on collection day it will not be considered as a missed bin collection.

In this case, you will need to wait until your next scheduled collection, or you can take it to the Household Waste Recycling Centre on Barkers Lane, Bedford.

When to report a missed bin collection

You should report a missed bin collection as soon as possible if your rubbish or recycling hasn’t been picked up.

This must be within two working days from your collection day.
