Leaf clearing

Our street cleaning contractor Continental Landscapes Ltd clears leaves from streets in the borough as part of the scheduled sweeping programme.

We are not able to clear leaves from private roads, driveways or forecourts.

Autumn leaf fall season

This can occur anytime from mid-October to mid-January depending on weather conditions. Additional resources are provided and longer hours are worked during periods of heavy leaf fall periods to clear leaves from streets as quickly as possible. These resources are mainly deployed in streets with the heaviest leaf fall, such as those lined with large street trees and those adjacent to parks and commons.

Scheduled street sweeping may occur one day later than normal during heavy leaf fall periods.

Every year we clear over 1,000 tonnes of leaves from local streets and parks.
