Street Care & Cleaning

Street SweepingThe Council is responsible for the sweeping of streets and removal of litter.

The Council's streets are divided into zones, depending on the volume of traffic using the streets each day. The more frequently the road is used, the more often it will be swept.

However, if the visual appearance of an area should deteriorate to an unacceptable level between cleans, it will be cleaned up within a certain time, as laid down in a Litter Code of Practice under the Environmental Protection Act 1990.

If you feel your road is not swept satisfactorily, or you have any other comments or questions, please contact our Customer Services Team on 01643 703704 or by email customerservices@westsomerset.gov.uk, or by online form.
