Street Sweeping


Street sweeping is the removal of mud, litter, leaves, grit and debris from the roadside.

What we do

The Council is responsible for keeping highways, lay-bys, bus shelters, subways, council car & coach parks and recycling centres clean.

Areas we don’t cover

The Council is not responsible for street sweeping on the following:

  • Private Land – this is the land owners responsibility
  • Unadopted roads
  • Private footpaths

Reporting a problem

If you feel that there is an area that comes under our jurisdiction that requires sweeping or would like to discuss a street sweeping issue, please contact the Customer Services Team

What happens next

Once you report an area that requires sweeping, it will be followed up with an inspection and all relevant and necessary work is carried out.
