Deep Cleanse Programme
The Deep Cleanse Programme was developed to compliment other seasonal programmes, such as the Weeding and Leafing Programmes. It aims to deliver a holistic cleansing and enforcement programme targeted at certain locations, which have been identified as requiring dedicated action to bring them up to the highest cleansing standard. These include roads that have high levels of traffic flow or have a permanent parked vehicle presence, which restricts cleansing vehicles being able to access the channels to clear out debris.
To enable the roads to be ‘deep cleansed’, we may obtain temporary road closures or parking suspensions to allow vehicles to access the channels that are often obstructed with parked vehicles.
The works carried out through this method of cleansing can include:
- mechanical and manual cleansing,
- traffic and parking restrictions and/or road closures,
- graffiti teams,
- gully cleansing,
- environmental officers addressing overgrown vegetation and unlawfully placed domestic and trade waste and other enforcement action,
- weed or leaf removal
We are commencing this years’ Deep Cleanse Programme in the east of the borough and will update as we progress through the season.
The Deep Cleanse service will commence from 5 June 2023, with the list of roads detailed in the attached schedule.
