Big Autumn Tidy

From 1 November 2021 to 31 January 2022 Veolia will have more staff and vans working to keep our streets clean and tidy during Autumn and Winter.

You will see more staff and checks on areas that have dumped rubbish and bags left on streets.

We will be:

  • clearing fly-tipping, furniture and sacks put out incorrectly
  • searching bags
  • clearing graffiti
  • checking and cleaning road drains
  • cleaning roads of litter, sweeping and clearing weeds
  • delivering leaflets

This is in addition to:

  • 166 tonnes of rubbish collected daily
  • 52 tonnes of pink recycling sacks, paper and card collected daily
  • 175 miles of streets swept, and litter picked by Veolia each day

How you can help

  • put your recycling and waste at the edge of your property by 7am on your correct collection day
  • never put your recycling or waste out early or on non-collection days
  • if you have large items to get rid of think about giving them to a charity or to the re-use shop at the Stock Road Household Waste Recycling Centre (HWRC), or they can be collected using the bulky waste collection service or taken to one of the HWRCs
  • look at how you can reduce the waste you create
  • look at what can be recycled and make sure it is in the correct box, bin or sack, ready for collection
  • use the food waste service – it will be turned into green energy
  • if you use the garden waste service put garden leaves into your bin
  • don’t litter. Please use litter bins or take your rubbish home, litter is bad for the environment and can harm animals
