Rochford District Council has a duty to ensure that the District is kept clear of litter.
The Aims of our Street Scene Service:
- To contribute to the community priority: cleaner, greener and safer district.
- To comply with the lawful duty and the Environmental Protection Act Code of Practice in the most efficient and cost effective manner.
Rochford District Council in accordance with the Environmental Protection Act 1990 - Section 89(1) and the Code of Practice on Litter and Refuse arranges the cleansing of designated public land and highways.
A Code of Practice on Litter and Refuse is issued under section 89(7) of the Environmental Protection 1990 Act. This Code of Practice defines standards of cleanliness and sets how promptly differing types of land should be returned to a set cleanliness standard.
The Four Grades of Cleanliness
|GRADE A: No litter or refuse.||GRADE B: Predominantly free of litter and refuse apart from some small items.|
|GRADE C: Widespread distribution of litter and refuse with minor accumulations.||GRADE D: heavily littered with significant accumulations.|

If you think that your street is dirty, please report it to our street cleansing contractors, SITA uk, on: 01702 533880 or email: email@example.com
To ensure that the Council complies with our cleanliness duty, the Contract Monitoring Officers (CMOs) inspect and organise cleanliness for every road in the District fortnightly.
In busy sites such as shopping areas, there are additional cleansing services provided to keep these areas clean. In these sites there are permanent cleansing staff solely responsible for continuous cleansing.
You can help your community by:
- Being tidy with your litter, cigarette and chewing gum
- Keeping your recyclables and non-recyclables inside of the wheeled bin
- Having waste collection contracts for your business
- Not leaving your dog's mess for others
- Not parking where you want us to clean
