Street Care Teams
The Streetcare team consists of three fully equipped vehicles, a 'Green Machine' and at least six operatives who sweep and litter pick, remove fly tips and cleanse the Borough's streets as necessary.
Whether it's emptying litter bins in shopping areas, removing graffiti or sweeping broken glass, the crews are able to deal with all the cleansing tasks that face them.
One of the vehicles is dedicated to dealing with flytipping in the Borough and advertises the flytipping hotline 0800 328 6835 or you can report this online; report flytipping online
This scheme is designed to ensure that every street is visited and litter picked at least every twelve weeks and that it also receives a deep cleanse every four to six months. This will include manual and mechanical sweeping of the footways, cleansing of street signs and other street furniture, and verge trimming.
Town Centre Ranger
Brentwood’s Town Centre Ranger is an additional force in the Council’s street cleaning team.
As well as clearing graffiti, doing the odd bit of painting and cleaning, he encourages and helps local businesses to keep their premises spick and span. His role is more that of a town centre caretaker and he also uses his own discretion to respond to problems as he sees them or call in the Council workforce to deal with them.
