Leafing Season

As autumn arrives each year, the borough experiences some heavy leaf fall. This usually happens between October and December and during this time, we make some changes to our street cleansing schedules, to respond to this.

Schedule of road cleaning

Our dedicated leafing team will clear many roads once a week, from Monday 11 October to Wednesday 17 December 2021. 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, as this increases the workload
  • dispose of leaves as garden waste in your green top bins (or paper or corn starch bag).
