Street Cleansing

Protecting and improving our local environment is one of the Council's top priorities and our resident's feel very strongly about clean streets and open spaces.  

Therefore, we have dedicated hand sweepers, mechanical sweepers and litter-picking teams all working together to maintain a clean and litter-free environment.

Service Standards and Strategies

Hyndburn Borough Council and Lancashire County Council have produced a set of service standards and policies outlining both residents' and our responsibilities to Waste Management and Street Cleansing.

Waste Enforcement Action

Council Enforcement Officers divide their time between advising residents and businesses how to manage their waste and investigating incidents of flytipping.

Fly-tipping, whatever the size, is illegal!
