Street cleaning policy

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

Major routes into the town are swept weekly 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 how busy the area is 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 us 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.

Inspections are carried out daily by the street cleaning 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.
