Grass cutting

Our StreetCare teams operate a cycle of grass cutting across the borough that usually takes around three weeks.  Bad weather can change our schedule.

As we are into October our StreetCare officers are now on their Winter rotas. During these shorter days the officers may be taken off mowing and will look to do more winter works eg, leaf clearance or shrub and hedge maintenance.

If the grass needs cutting in your area, please bear with us, we will be with you as soon as we can.

 

Where will our teams be this week?

This week we will be in the following areas:

Why don’t teams pick up the grass afterwards?

We operate to industry standard methods when carrying out our grass cutting operations. This involves leaving grass where it falls once it has been cut – because it is difficult to recycle it makes sense to let it break down in to the soil.
