Street cleansing

Our team regularly clean all the streets, car parks and the town centre to keep Bedford Borough clean and safe. They start their working day cleaning busy areas, such as town centres, local shopping precincts and parades. We also target local litter ‘hot spots’, such as walking routes between local shops and school gates.

We operate a rolling programme which we regularly review to ensure the remaining roads and residential streets in your neighbourhood are clean and safe. All concerns raised are reviewed and if it does not fall below the levels of expected cleanliness and does not warrant a specific journey then it will be addressed and picked up in the rolling programme.

If your street becomes messy or littered between scheduled cleanings, please tell us.

Fallen leaves 

October to January is a busy time when we clear a lot of fallen leaves. During this time, we clear from public areas only and where there is a need to remove a build-up.

Report fallen leaves if they are likely to cause a problem like a slip hazard in these public areas.
