We clean shopping areas and town centres on a daily basis. Parks are cleaned weekly and residential areas cleaned every four weeks.
The streets in Harrow are visited and cleaned regularly by our cleaning teams. We attend to areas with heavy footfall more frequently than other areas. For example shopping areas are visited more frequently than a cul-de-sac located in a low footfall residential area.
By adopting a targeted approach we use our resources more efficiently. This helps to achieve better cleaning standards across the borough.
Have you seen a street that needs cleaning?
You can report a street to be cleaned online. However, please note that our teams visit all areas according to a schedule. This means that our street cleaning teams may consider your report within the context of the schedule. Streets with an increasing litter problem will more than likely get cleaned on their next scheduled visit.
Cleaning teams will not respond to dog fouling or small items such as a cigarette box. However your reports help us to build an understanding of trouble spots in the borough.
Before you start
To report a street to be cleaned you will need:
- The full address of the street which requires cleaning
- Details of what needs to be cleaned, for example needles, litter, staining (vomit, chewing gum or food) or spillages.
- Any photos that will help our cleaning team prepare for the job.
