Street cleaning

All roads are cleaned every eight weeks, except for the A25 and A22 which are cleaned every two weeks. The Council is not responsible for cleaning private or unadopted roads.

A22 dual carriageway

We only clean the A22 dual carriageway section from the A25 to Wapses Lodge Roundabout when Surrey County Council has put traffic management arrangements in place. It does this when it cuts the grass. This is normally only done during the grass growing season. We cannot clean the road at other times or on request.

M25 junction 6 slip roads

The roundabout and slip roads at Junction 6 of the M25 are cleaned once every six weeks by Highways England. This involves closing the slip roads at night.

Dog and litter bins

Dog and litter bins are emptied one to three times a week depending on their location and usage.

Report a problem with a litter or dog bin

Dead animals on the road

We remove certain dead animals from the road including cats, dogs, badgers, foxes and larger animals such as deer. These will be removed within 48 hours of being reported.

Smaller animals including squirrels and rabbits are removed during scheduled street cleaning.

If someone reports a dead domestic animal in the road our street sweeping team collect it and scan the animal for a micro chip. If the animal has a micro chip it will give a reference number which can be used to find the owners contact details.
