Street cleaning service

The Council currently spends £1 million a year keeping Broxbourne's streets clean:

  • Streets and footpaths are cleaned regularly at frequencies tailored to the requirement of each location;
  • Town centres are cleaned on continuous beats between 6.30am and 6pm on weekdays and 7am and 5pm on Saturdays and Sundays;
  • Car parks are mechanically swept; and
  • Over 750 litter bins (including those in parks and open spaces) and around 250 dog bins throughout the Borough are regularly emptied.

Cleaning is carried out by mechanised sweeping, manual sweeping, litter picking or a combination of techniques. High usage areas such as town centres and the majority of shop fronts are cleaned daily, whilst residential roads are targeted on a frequency according to need.
