The City Council is responsible for keeping Worcester's adopted streets, footways and land clean and free of litter. The streets are divided into zones and, depending on the zone, any litter must be cleaned up as laid down by the Code of Practice on Litter and Refuse.

Our service provides both a programmed and responsive cleansing function using different methods as follows:

  • Sweeping and litter picking of streets and pedestrian areas
  • Sweeping and litter picking of council car parks 
  • Sweeping of footpaths and cycleways
  • Litter picking of known trouble spots

Please note that some streets or parts of streets in Worcester are not adopted by the Council and so are not covered by this service.
