The Council is committed to ensuring that public spaces and highways are kept free from litter. Under the Environmental Protection Act 1990, local authorities have a statutory duty to provide clean streets, footways and open spaces that are in public ownership, including:
- Removal of graffiti
- Emptying of litter and dog bins
- Collection of dead animals (domestic and wild)
- Collection of domestic bulky waste (charges apply)
- Needles/Drug Litter
All towns and villages are divided up into “zones” with the busiest and dirtiest being cleaned more regularly.
If you notice litter or spillage which affects the road or pathway please complete one of the following forms (please note fuel spillage and mud from framing vehicles will usually be the responsibility of the Police or Highways Authority):
