When we clean your streets 

Residential streets are cleaned regularly: 

  • Standard cleaning takes place either weekly, fortnightly or three-weekly and includes removing litter, broken glass, animal mess and small fly-tips
  • Deep cleaning takes place four times a year and includes standard cleaning plus weeds, blossom, leaves and the build up of dirt and grit.  

Town centres

Town centres and transport hubs are cleaned daily and all street litter bins are emptied at least once a day.

Leaf clearance

During the autumn leaf fall season, we clean tree lined streets more often, where needed.
