The availability of drivers fluctuates daily, and Veolia is taking mitigations to complete as many collections as possible. Most kerbside refuse, recycling, garden waste and communal collections are currently being completed on their scheduled day. Please leave your bins out ready for collection.

Today, their priority is to complete yesterday's outstanding collections in the following postcode areas:

  • Recycling in SM1, SM2, SM5 and SM6
  • Communal recycling in CR0, SM1, SM2, SM5 and SM6

Some rounds have not been dispatched today. We are sorry for the inconvenience caused. Collections scheduled for today in the following areas are most likely to be impacted. These will be collected as soon as possible:

  • Recycling in KT4, SM2 and SM3
  • Communal recycling in KT4, SM2 and SM3

You can use this service to report a missed bin, box or caddy collection.

We’ll arrange for a crew to return within two working days.

Report a missed bin collection

Before you start

A collection will not be re-attempted if your bin, box or caddy:

  • wasn’t put out before 6am on your collection day

  • contained incorrect waste or was too heavy

Once you’ve reported a missed collection, please leave the bin, box or caddy at the front of your property, close to the pavement but not on it, ready for collection.

When to report a missed collection

Please wait until after 6pm on your collection day to report a missed collection. Our collection crews work until 6pm and they may still be making their way to your property.

Missed collections must be reported within two working days.
