Report litter, rubbish or overflowing bins

We provide litter bins throughout Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole and encourage everyone to use them. We also provide a street cleaning service for highways, public footways, pedestrian areas, car parks and many public areas.

The busier the area, the more often we clean it.

We also:

  • clean road signs and street furniture
  • remove rubbish from council land
  • empty litter bins before they become full
  • help with locally organised litter picks
  • hand-pick litter and rubbish from pavements or grass verges
  • use mechanical sweeping to clean gutters and roadways
  • get rid of chewing gum in pedestrian areas
  • clear major leaf falls from roads
  • collect discarded syringes and needles.

You need to tell us:

  • the location of the issue
  • any additional information that can help us locate the issue
  • your contact details if you want us to update you.

During bad weather or busy holidays it may not be possible to empty every bin before they get full.

If you find a full bin, do not leave your waste on top or by the bin where it might get blown around. Please take it to another bin with space or take it home with you.
