Street cleaning

We clean the streets regularly - every day in the centre of town. Contact us and we may clean private roads. We charge for this service.

Cleaning issues

You can use our report form or Love Clean Reading app to report:

  • litter
  • flytipping
  • graffiti or flyposting
  • dead animals or dog mess
  • vomit or blood
  • broken streetlights or street furniture

Contact our street cleaning team if you find syringes or needles. Call the emergency services if you think the issue is causing immediate danger. 

Reading Adopt Your Street (RAYS)

You can help keep the Borough clean and tidy by looking after your street or favourite local area. RAYS volunteers are provided with litter pickers, biodegradable bags, gloves and hi-vis jackets. Volunteering for this scheme will not mean a reduction in the Council's street cleaning schedules. By volunteering you will help make a difference for the better.

Contact us on 0118 937 3534 or email RAYS@Reading.gov.uk.
