We operate a street cleaning programme across the borough.
The frequency of cleansing is dependant upon need.
High usage areas such as town centres are cleaned daily. Whereas residential areas are swept every 8 weeks.
We specifically target black spot areas for additional cleaning and is constantly reassessing the cleaning schedule to match resources against need.
Litter in a public place is unsightly. It is also dangerous to animals. Littering is an offence under The Environmental Protection Act 1990. The Act states that if a person drops, throws, deposits, or leaves anything that causes defacement in a public place they are committing a littering offence.
Fines can be issued by our Enforcement Officers, so always try to use a litter bin or take it home.
