Lost, damaged or stray bins

Please note

We are aware of disruptions to collections at the moment. Please read the latest update from the Leader of Southampton City Council.

Properties in Southampton with storage for bins should have a:

  • Green-top general waste bin
  • Blue-top recycling bin
  • Black/grey glass box

Properties without storage for bins will be given rolls of sacks instead (these are delivered twice a year). You can request waste sacks from us.

If you believe your bin is missing, before reporting this to us please check:

  • Whether your bin has been moved away from your normal collection point
  • If your bin has been accidentally claimed by one of your neighbours
  • The surrounding areas carefully in case your bin has been returned to the wrong property
