Street cleaning

Information on street cleaning

We clean litter from adopted pavements and roads, pedestrian areas and council-owned car parks within the district.

Our teams are based in Barnstaple, Ilfracombe and South Molton, each following an agreed programme of works.

Commercial street cleaning

North Devon Council offers a commercial street cleaning service. This includes small, private car parks to large industrial or factory areas. Our service is flexible to suit your needs and we can offer regular contracts to ensure your site stays clean and safe, as well as one-off cleans, for example, after an event. 

If you would like to enquire about a private street sweep and the costs of this service, please email or phone 01271 318508.

Dead animals on roads

We will arrange for the collection of dead dogs and cats that are reported to be on a public highway or pavement. However, this does not apply to animals on private land, for example, a public footpath running across private land.
