Street Cleaning


We carry out sweeping and inspections of all areas on a regular basis.

In between inspections, if any area falls below the required standard it will be cleaned to the standards set by the Environment Protection Act 1990. For example, within 1 hour in town centre areas.

Road Sweeping Recycling

Road sweepings from Dover district are recycled through Kent County Council’s Household Waste Recycling Centre in Dover.  The swept up material is taken to the Biffa plant in Horsham, West Sussex where the main output is sand (mixed with concrete and used in the construction industry) and aggregate (used in the construction industry for filling pot holes and lining trenches).
