Street cleaning

Residential areas

Residential areas are cleansed to a recognised standard, dependent on the nature and needs of the area. This can vary from daily in built up areas to monthly in suburban areas.

Litter bin emptying

Litter bins are emptied as part of the normal street cleansing schedule for that particular road.

Autumn leaf clearance

From the end of October to December or January we provide additional crews and equipment to clear leaves to stop pavements and roads becoming slippery and messy and to prevent blockages in gullies. Because the rate of leaf fall varies through the season, the amount of time taken to complete one full cycle of the schedule is unpredictable, so it is not possible to provide firm dates for when roads will be cleared.

Report the build up of fallen leaves

We will quickly catch up on any days that change due to public holidays. All major shopping areas are cleaned daily.
