We aim to keep all our roads free from litter and rubbish and keep the borough as attractive and safe as possible
Although each street in the borough is scheduled to be cleaned regularly we realise than in between these cleans there can be a build up of litter on the street. When this happens and the street's cleanliness is significantly affected we will return to carry out an additional clean.
We monitor our street cleaning standards according to the DEFRA Code of Practice
We are not responsible for
Cleaning on un-adopted roads or private land. With the exception of parks and green spaces we do not provide dog waste bins in residential, commercial and retail areas.

What you can do...?
- Please don't drop litter, use the public litter bins provided. This will enable us to use council resources in the most effective way.
- Don't use litter bins for household or commercial waste.
- Move your car away from the street when scheduled cleansing is due to take place.
- Make sure you clean up after your dog. Find out more about responsible dog ownership.

Nature friendly verges
We are trialling a new, nature friendly, management regime for grass verges at 11 sites across the borough.
