Keeping streets clean

Dog mess

Litter and street cleaning

We clean public roads and pavements, remove litter from public places and spray verges and pavements with weed killer. Private land is the responsibility of the landowner.

If there is grease or moss on pavements, we can wash the street or remove the moss to make it safe.

Syringes

Don’t touch or hide syringes if you find them. We aim to remove them within two hours of being made aware of them. If it’s on private land, tell the land owner.

Beach raking

We rake the beach in Weston-super-Mare every morning and clear it of litter during the summer.
