Street cleaning

Street cleansing is divided into the following categories:

  • shop fronts
  • roads
  • litter bins/picking
  • car parks
  • emergency response cover

All categories are carried out to agreed schedules, except for emergency responses. Although owned and generally maintained by Transport for London (TfL), the Council carries out sweeping of the sections of the A2 and A20 within the borough. This is done on a scheduled basis and has to be co-ordinated with TfL for implementing lane closures.

Note: Large items on the trunk road carriageways are the responsibility of TFL to remove. Street cleaning does not include rubbish and recycling issues or fly-tipping.
