Littering, litter bins and street cleaning
We all want a clean and safe District. If there is a problem somewhere, please tell us as soon as you can.
We deal with litter, graffiti, fly posting, dog fouling, spillages, syringes, broken glass, removal of dead animals from Council land and sweeping of paths and roads.
We will also collect deceased dogs and cats from the roadside so contact us if your pet is missing. Once collected the animal will be scanned for a chip, if there is a chip we will contact the registered chip company and try to contact the owner. All animals are retained for a short period of time in a freezer and are then disposed of.
We respond urgently to reports of broken glass, surgical sharps, bodily fluids or dog waste on Council land.
For information on how to dispose of personal hazardous waste such as syringes visit our Hazardous Waste page.
We no longer install dog bins but will install a litter bin if one is needed. If a litter bin or dog bin is in need of emptying, repairing or replacing please tell us on the form at the top of this page. If you think a bin needs to be installed complete the form but please be aware we judge all requests on an individual basis and we cannot always fulfil all requests.
