Bin collection reminders for flats
We cannot send bin collection reminders for residents living in flats.
This is because we use bulk bin vehicles on a different system to make bin collections from the bin stores at flats.
Refuse from flats is normally contained in a bulk bin or bin store, so if your collection is a day later it shouldn’t cause a problem.
