Request street cleaning

All roads are usually swept on a daily, weekly, fortnightly or four weekly basis. Busy high streets will be swept much more regularly than quiet residential roads. Very busy shopping areas, such as the city centre, are swept throughout the day, seven days a week.

You can get in touch to ask us to:

  • clean litter from a public street or adjoining grass verge
  • remove a dead animal
  • remove dumped hypodermic needles

For information about leaf removal, please visit our leaf clearance page.

We have currently suspended the issue of any new 'no dumping' signs.

You will need an online BRUM account to request street cleaning. Create an account if you don't already have one.
