We are responsible for street cleansing.


We visit every street every other week for litter-picking and sweep every road regularly, parked vehicles permitting. The Town Centre and Old Town High Street are cleaned hourly during the working day and neighbourhood shopping areas are cleaned up to twice daily.

If the visual appearance of an area should deteriorate to an unacceptable level between cleans however, it will be cleaned up.

You can report an issue with street cleanliness online.

Cleaning frequency

Our streets are divided into zones, depending on the volume of pedestrian traffic using the streets each day. The more frequently the area is used, the more often it will be swept.

We also offer a competitively priced mechanical sweeping service to local businesses and developers for one-off or regular sweeps of areas such as roads, car parks and building sites.
