Outline

Cheltenham town centre is litter picked, mechanically swept and spot power washed every morning on a daily basis including weekends. Litter picking carries on throughout the day until 5pm.

Major routes into the town are swept on a weekly basis or more often if necessary.

All areas outside the town centre are scheduled to be litter picked according to their needs and this can vary from a twice weekly litter pick to a monthly litter pick depending on footfall and the amount of litter that occurs.

Fly tipping is picked up on the day of the litter pick, or if it is reported to Cheltenham Borough Council a ticket will be raised to remove it as soon as practical.

The schedules will be altered during the autumn months as more emphasis will be placed on leaf clearance in the areas most affected until leaf fall is complete.

Inspections are carried out on a daily basis by the street cleansing supervisor who documents 40 random checks each month. Standards are also recorded with 300 NI 195 inspections which are carried out over each four month cycle, these figures are recorded and compared to previous results.
