Road sweeping

The relevant public highways of Breckland need to be regularly swept to make sure that there is no significant build up of materials such as silt, gravel, small items of litter, leaves and blossom.

Our mechanical sweepers are used every day to ensure Breckland's streets are kept clean and tidy. This programme of works is operated on a scheduled basis and the frequency varies depending on the area. Streets are swept every four to 12 weeks depending on the location.

We will not sweep:

  • Unkerbed roads.
  • Unadopted Highways.
  • Brick weaved areas.

If you think a road has the need to be swept and is not in the list above, you canrequest road sweeping using our online form.
