Team sweeping of residential streets takes place every two weeks on a rolling programme. However, if you have a street orderly working in your area, your road will be swept each week
There are areas that are usually cleaned every day:
- high roads
- streets near schools
- major shopping parades
Cleaning estates and private roads
If an estate or development has been adopted by the Council then we will clean these too. These are also cleaned once a week.
If the streets are private then we do not clean them. It is the responsibility of the developer or managing agent.
Roads we clean less often
We are responsible for clearing litter from the parts of the major road network managed by TfL that fall within that our boundary.
Trunk roads in Redbridge:
- A1400, Woodford Avenue (from Gants Hill Roundabout to Charlie Brown’s Roundabout)
- A12, Eastern Avenue from the Borough boundary with Barking and Dagenham, just before the junction with Whalebone Lane, up to The Green Man Roundabout in Wanstead. Waltham Forest has responsibility for litter clearance on the Green Man roundabout itself
- A406, North Circular Road from the Waterworks Roundabout on and off slips - to the off and on slips at Ilford Hill, at the junction with A118
- Waltham Forest has responsibility for litter on the roundabout itself
We do not have responsibility for the part of the A406 known as the Barking Relief Road in the direction of the A13.
