Road sweeping and litter

We are responsible for road sweeping and litter clearance, including leaves, in certain areas.

This does not include major trunk roads and privately owned property or land.

Litter bins

We provide over 850 litter bins. They can be used for dog waste, but it has to be in a bag.

We empty bins at busy places up to four times a day. In main streets and playgrounds they are emptied daily. We empty bins in villages and quieter places weekly.

You can report a bin that’s damaged or needs emptying.

Use our online mapping to find a litter bin.
