We empty over 850 litter and dog bins and have responsibility for the scheduled cleansing of specified public highways in excess of 2,000 miles. This includes all carriageways, pavements and verges within the town centres of Evesham, Droitwich, Pershore and Broadway, together with all other roads within their surrounding built-up areas.

Town centres are cleansed twice daily and all litter bins emptied at the same time. Other areas are cleansed either weekly or fortnightly. In addition all villages, trunk roads, and A & B class roads are cleansed to a schedule ranging from fortnightly, up to every three months.

Weed spraying

Weed spraying of public highways is carried out three times each year between April and September. The timing of the work varies depending upon the weather conditions.
