Street litter bins

We are responsible for keeping adopted highways clean and litter-free, within the requirements of the Environmental Protection Act along with other public spaces, such as parks and play areas. 

This service is provided by emptying litter bins, sweeping processes, supplemented by reactionary sweeping where additional demands require it. We aim to keep the environment as pleasant as possible. Please help us by putting your litter in the bins provided or by taking it home. Litter includes dog-fouling, needles and fallen leaves.

To report a full or damaged bin, please complete the online dog or litter bin reporting service (opens new window)

We will replace damaged bins or repair ones which have come loose. 

For any suggestions to install additional public litter bins, we'll inspect the area where the litter bin has been requested and if there is not another one within a reasonable distance and there is a suitable fixing point, we can arrange for a new one to be erected. Please submit a request using our online request new dog or litter bin service (opens new window).
