Street Litter (incl Street Sweeping)

Road sweeper

Waste Management Services are responsible for sweeping over 38,000 kilometres of streets and footpaths each year as well as emptying litter bins and dog waste bins in the District.

The street cleansing service provides regular mechanical and manual sweeping of all adopted roads on a scheduled basis.  Every road is usually swept either daily, weekly, fortnightly or four weekly, depending upon service needs.  Busy High Streets will need to be swept much more regularly than quiet residential roads.

Areas where most litter is generated are swept frequently with many areas receiving daily attention. We are not responsible for private land, canal towpaths and certain other areas. Please let us know if there is a problem with litter in your area by contacting 01756 700600, or contact
