Report a missed collection
There are a number of reasons why your garbage or organics may not have been picked up:
- Weather-related road conditions made access to your street or lane unsafe
- Roadwork, construction, parking, or filming crews may have blocked access to your street or lane
- Your materials didn't meet the requirements for safe pick-up by our crew
- Your materials included items that we don't accept
