Leafing Season

The leafing season, where the borough experiences heavy leaf fall, is usually between October and December. During this time, we make some changes to our cleansing schedules to respond to this.

Schedule of road cleaning

Our dedicated leafing team will clear many roads once a week, from Monday 7 October to Friday 6 December 2019. If your street is on the list below it will be cleaned each week by the leafing team. If it is not then it will be cleaned every two weeks:

Please note: If your road is listed, you will notice your cleansing day may have changed. This is only temporary and will return to normal after the leafing period is complete.

We will clean all other residential roads fortnightly during this period. Our teams will face extra cleansing on these roads, as they will also be clearing leaves which will take longer to complete.

What you can do to help

We ask residents to:

  • not sweep leaves from your gardens and driveways out onto the public highway
  • dispose of leaves as garden waste in your green top bins (or paper or corn starch bag).
