Street care and cleaning

We are responsible for the day-to-day cleansing requirements of the District and this includes the hand and mechanical sweeping of highways, pavements and public open spaces such as car parks and market squares to remove litter and detritus.

We are also responsible for the removal of weeds from footways, the removal of dog faeces from pavements and verges and the sweeping of autumn leaves to maintain safety and reduce the risk of flooding. 

The main towns centres are cleaned daily through the use of barrowmen supported by mechanical pavement sweepers.  The villages are cleaned to a schedule, generally twice a year.  If standards within the villages or along the interlinking roads drop additional cleansing will be carried out.

Fly-tipping is the illegal dumping of waste.
