Street cleaning

Street cleaning operational teams carry out routine works in all areas in Basingstoke town along with supporting rural parishes where practical. The work includes:

  • cleaning main parks at least twice per week with high priority parks completed on a daily basis
  • emptying bins at least once a week with frequently used bins such as town centre bins emptied daily
  • mechanical road sweeping
    • kerbed streets swept four to six times per year
    • hard surfaced footpaths and precincts swept two to four times per year
    • country routes are carried out on an ad-hoc basis, due to safety issues
    • accessible highway paths swept four times in a year
  • the clearance of heavy leaf fall between November and January. The schedule of which will be published on our leaf clearance webpage.

Reporting an issue

You can help keep the borough clean and safe by reporting fly-tipping, fly-posting, litter, graffiti, dog fouling and dead animals

Report a street cleaning issue

Abandoned shopping trolleys

Report abandoned shopping trolleys direct to the retailer. Clearly identify the issue, specify the location and provide any other relevant information.

Alternatively, report an abandoned trolley to Trolleywise, a professional trolley retrieval service that operates on behalf of most big supermarkets and shops. Find more information on the TrolleyWise website.

Emptying of road gulleys

Report any issues to Hampshire County Council who carry out this work.

Filled bags left by the roadside

Our estate cleaners have collected litter in these and have left them for collection later in the day by our mobile cleansing collection teams. Please contact us if these bags are there for more than 24 hours.

Hazardous litter, such as asbestos and syringes
