Litter and street sweeping

Last Modified February 12, 2021

Our streets are divided into zones depending on how often they are used. The busier a road is used, the more often it will be swept or litter picked.

Please note: during the autumn there will be some change to the service as the sweepers concentrate on clearing fallen leaves.

 dual litter and recycling street bin

Dual use litter and recycling bins are available in the main shopping streets in Borehamwood, Bushey, Potters Bar and Radlett. In these you can recycle plastic bottles and cans, and in some of the locations, newspaper.



Fixed Penalty Notices (FPNs)

Did you know you can be fined £75 for dropping litter, including chewing gum and cigarette butts? Take Pride in Hertsmere (2.95MB PDF) is our campaign to keep our streets nice places to be.
