Litter clearance

  • litter can be classed as anything from an apple core to a cigarette butt, and everything in between
  • the council’s litter picking teams, as well as street sweepers are out and about daily clearing litter from pathways
  • the litter picking teams will leave bagged rubbish at the kerbside to be picked up in a vehicle on their rounds
  • litter clearance in the borough costs the council thousands of pounds each year
Report significant cases of littering to our customer services team on 024 7637 6376.
