Our street cleaning team are responsible for keeping the borough clean with their road sweepers, footpath and alley sweepers, litter pickers, mowers, brooms and brushes.

All streets in the borough are swept at least once every eight weeks. Town centres, areas around schools and other hot spots are swept daily.

Report a cleansing issue

Litter collection

There is a cleaning operative based in each of the three town centres working from Tuesday to Saturday to keep the town centres free from litter. Litter is unsightly and can quickly build up if not removed.

Environmental wardens

Environmental wardens are a group of volunteers who take responsibility for looking after an area of the borough. This could be as small as the pavement of the street in front of their house. Larger areas include open space, a row of shops or even the roads near a school. Read more about environmental wardens.

Complete the form to report issues such as fly-tipping, litter, dog mess, graffiti, animal carcass on public highways and any other street cleaning incidents.
