FOI 13327

Street Cleaning

Request

What is the total number of people the council currently employs to work as street cleaners?

I would like this figure to include, if possible both the number directly employed by the council and any who might be employed via a contractor.

I would also like the same figure as it stood at the end of the following financial years:
2015-16
2014-15
2013-14
2012-13
2011-12

2010-11
2009-10


If this should take my request beyond the cost limit, I'd still like to receive the figure as it stands at the moment.


I define a 'person employed to work as a street cleaner' as some one for whom sweeping, cleaning or picking up litter from the streets is a central part of their job.

Response



Thank you for your request as detailed below. I can advise that we currently employ 20 staff as Street Care Operatives and this figure has been same number on staff establishment in the years
requested below.

2015-16
2014-15
2013-14
2012-13
2011-12
2010-11
2009-10

The Street Care Operatives are all employed directly by the Council not contractors.
